Eurotrip 2013: Part 11 – Galway and the Cliffs of Moher

This is the eleventh post in a series about my 2013 trip to Ireland, Scotland and Great Britain. Part of the free plane tickets were funded by the 40,000 point sign up bonus of the Chase Sapphire Preferred card.

We spent the next two nights in Galway and started out by driving back down to one of the most famous sights in Ireland, the Cliffs of Moher.  We actually ended up going in through the back entrance and took a short hike up a hill through a bull pasture (!) towards Hag’s Head.

Once we got up there, the view was simply spectacular!




Here is a great panorama shot of the whole Cliffs of Moher area.

I even stopped inside to get a pic from inside the tower.

We popped into a delicious chocolate shop and bought more than we should have!

On the way back to Galway we drove through the Burrens, an area of unique rock formations.


We went out in Galway and checked out the main street littered with bars.


Galway was a pretty city though and our room at the Radisson Galway had a nice view.

Time was flying by though and it was time to drive back to Dublin, turn in our car and take the train to Belfast!
