Ireland Part II: Cliffs of Moher and Aran Islands

After leaving the Burren in County Clare, my sister and I made our way to our second destination: Doolin. Doolin is a small seaside village on the west coast of Ireland along the Wild Atlantic Way. It is known around the world as the traditional music capital of Ireland and that is what drew us to stay there while visiting the Cliffs of Moher.

As we trotted along the road, they pointed out all the best sights, along with the unique characteristics of the island. The landscape was originally similar to that of the Burren, but farmers on the island cleared away as many rocks as they could to make room for their fields.

We spent that night in Galway City and in the morning, we woke up to another sunny day. We woke up early so we could walk around the Latin Quarter while it was less busy.
