The Cliffs of Insanity

We left Dingle this morning and headed for county Clare. Still no rain, perfect for viewing the 700 foot Cliffs of Moher. This is where they filmed the “Cliffs of Insanity” scenes from the Princess Bride.
After that we drove through the Burren, a weird but beautiful landscape of fields, cliffs, and flat limestone formations. This area is also home to some Megalithic tombs and structures that are older than the pyramids in Egypt.
Our B&B for the night is in nearby Doolin, with great rolling farmland and a stunning, rugged coastline.
O’Connor’s Pub had great food, pints, and live traditional music.
