We left Doolin Pier just after 2:30pm with a light breeze on our backs. I had to ditch my short cag within about 10 minutes I was sweating so much in the heat. We got some nice runners to carry us along to the cliffs which kept our minds occupied and the anticipation at bay for a little while longer. Neither of us had been to the Cliffs of Moher before so we were a bit excited.
As we neared O'Brian's Look Out the scale of the cliffs starts to hit you. The next thing that stuck me was the bird colonies and the strong smell. I have never seen so many birds in one place. It felt like we were in a David Attenborough documentary!
There were lots of ferries packed with tourists spinning under the cliffs as well. They actually helped give some perspective.
We stopped at the next small stack for a short break.
A highly enjoyable trip that ranks with the best I have done. Check out the video below.
