Ireland. Cliffs of Moher, Dublin, Giant’s Causway!

Today we are headed to Dublin with a detour to the “Cliffs of Moher” for about 360 km. The ferry across the river from Tarbert to Killrush saves the about 140 km drive around the inlet.

This was not that nice today on this rainy bleak Irish morning.

We had planned a coastal route again with a stop at the “Cliffs of Moher”. This was a bit of a bust with the blustery wet day it was far from it’s spectacular best.

The rain continued as we made for Dublin and our 430 pm appointment at the Jameson Distillery. Here we had a tour and whisky tasting.

Then we walked a few blocks over to where all the action was in the pedestrian zone that is full of bars, clubs, and restaurants. Here there were dozens of places with live music. The way to end a night of drinking…Mc Chicken of course.

The weather was threatening again today and we did get a few heavy showers. We had Ferry tickets for the 1 am sailing to the Isle of Man and so we had all day to get to Belfast for the 1130 pm check-in tonight.

Riding north to Northern Ireland we were all prepared for the border with our passports, but of course there is no border to cross. You only know you have entered a new country because there is a sign that says Speed limits are posted in miles.

We got lucky with a break in the weather for the visit to the Giant’s Causeway.
This is an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns from volcanic eruption.
