  • The Cliffs of Moher

    County Clare Warnings and Dangers

    When my wife & I were at The Cliffs of Moher in the fall of 2010, we noticed the same occurrences of many people ignoring the signs and climbing over the low fence for a better look or photo. As we were looking south down the coast we saw a couple of young guys heading to the edge. I noticed that the thousands of years of erosion caused the cliff...

    County Clare Warnings and Dangers

    Well of course, you have to be careful at the cliffs as the sign states. That really goes without saying. Another thing to be a little careful of in County Clare are some of the roads in the Burren region. Some are very winding and narrow and on both sides there are stone walls,so there is no shoulder. Being it was our first day and we weren't...

    Despite the widespread reduction across prices in many areas of Irish life, there's been little fall in B&B prices in Co Clare. Many B&Bs around Lough Derg are still in the range of €37 - €40 per person per night sharing - despite B&Bs in Cork, Dublin and Limerick dropping their prices to near €30 per night per person sharing and, more importantly,...

  • Don't fool with Mother Nature

    Our guide stressed over and over that she wanted us to stay to the right, no sense in getting ourselves blown off the Cliffs into the waters below. Part of the way up to the left is paved, she was referring to the section that was blocked off with a big sign that said "Please Do Not Go Past This Point" which was duly ignored by scores of people who...

  • The Cliffs of Moher are high

    Take care, the Cliffs of Moher are very high (200m) and it has happened that people have been blown over the edge by surprise gusts.Here is a picture of me having slipped of the cliff. As I dangled there, holding on for dear life, I managed to hand my camera to a passer by so he could get my picture before he heroically saved me.

  • Beware of narrow roads

    Some of the roads are so narrow that cars can only travel in one direction. Don't go too fast especially when you cannot see on coming traffic.
