The final stop in Ireland was Doolin. This town is really close to the Cliffs of Moher, so it is pretty busy during the summer, but luckily not so much in February. It takes about an hour to walk to the cliffs from Doolin on the main road, and is very pretty as you can see the ocean pretty much the whole time. If you’re into a bit more hiking, there is a trail called The Burren Way, which is awesome because you are literally at the edge the whole time. This walk was definitely my favorite part of the trip, but I would recommend bringing hiking boots or old shoes because the mud just can’t be avoided.
The next couple of days were a bit more overcast, but luckily not too rainy, so I was able to explore around the area for the rest of the trip. Doolin is really unique because part of the area is included in an interesting rock formation called The Burren, it’s right next to the ocean, has a beautiful view of the Cliffs of Moher, is covered in gorgeous green farmland, and like all other places in Ireland, there are incredible ruins of old churches and houses everywhere. That being said, it does remind me a bit of Giant’s Causeway and the Antrim Coast – another neat geological fabrication with breathtaking views of the ocean.
And that’s that.
