Pilgrimage to Ireland - Burren National Park and Cliffs of Moher

The Burren National Park is almost 1,500 hectares of uplands in the southeast of the Burren. The area contains excellent examples of limestone pavement, calcareous grassland, hazel scrub, turloughs and fen. From here we move on to the spectacular Cliffs of Moher.

Then we visit the Cliffs of Moher. They stretch for 5 miles along the Atlantic coast of County Clare. From the Cliffs of Moher on a clear day one can see the Aran Islands and Galway Bay, as well as the Twelve Pins and the Maum Turk mountains in Connemara, Loop Head to the south and the Dingle Peninsula and Blasket Islands in Kerry. O’Brien’s Tower stands near the highest point.

I have beef stew for lunch. The food has been amazing.

Situated on the high Burren limestone plateau, Poulnabrone Dolmen is one of Ireland’s most iconic archaeological monuments and is the second-most visited location in the Burren, after the Cliffs of Moher. Poulnabrone is classified as a portal tomb and it is the oldest dated megalithic monument in Ireland.

In the evening, we arrive in Dingle.
