- Cliffs of Mohr, Co. Clare -
(Click thumbnail images)|
The Cliffs of Mohr. To get an idea of the scale, look for the little people hiking on top in the first photo. Probably the most famous and touristy spot in Ireland, but well worth it. Although they warn you not to hike along the edge of the cliffs, they don't stop you, so, I did, all the way to the furthest visible point in the first photo. There is a hiking path right next to the sheer drop (660 feet in some places). Erosion from the winds and the pounding surf is continous, and a few years ago a portion of a cliff collapsed into the sea, taking a picnic table with it.
