Ever since joining Pinterest, I have come across pictures of the Cliffs of Moher and have become obsessed with visiting them. But when I looked it up on Google Maps, I saw that it was on the opposite coast from Dublin and I didn't think the chances of visiting the Cliffs would be very likely if I ever visited Ireland. However, I was determined to at least try and even went as far as getting my international driver's permit from AAA before I left, but the idea of me driving on the opposite side of the road across Ireland didn't make my mom too excited. So, instead we found a day tour that took us from Dublin to the Cliffs and back.
Our tour included a one hour walking tour of the city of Galway, lunch in Doolin, two hours at the Cliffs and hours of driving through the beautiful Irish countryside. I was glad we decided to take the tour instead of driving ourselves, we got so much more out of the tour than we could have imagined and it actually saved us a lot of headache in terms of logistics. It made our last day in Ireland a relaxing one rather than one spent trying to learn how to drive on the opposite side of the road and getting lost in the Irish countryside. After we got back from the tour I went out one last time to the Temple Bar district where I danced and sang the night away with the same group of people I had met the night before.
