    Cliffs of Moher

    July 24, 2019 in Ireland ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    These sea Cliffs, located on the south western edge of the Burren region in County Clare, run for 14 kilometres. At the south end they rise 129 meters above the Atlantic Ocean at Hag's Head and eight kilometres to the north they reach their maximum height of 214 meters. Their formation is believed to have take place between 313 to 326 million years ago. Today the Cliffs are subject to erosion by wave action. There are also estimated to be some 30,000 pairs of birds living on the Cliffs, including Atlantic puffins. Although we didn't see any we saw a picture telling us about them. This picturesque landscape was made complete by the abundance of native flowers, including wild poppies that adorned the area.Read more
