Autumn Mornings, South Of The River


We kicked off the trip by heading to the Cliffs of Moher. We woke up to fairly sunny skies and very light winds so figured it was a good time to go. Unfortunately that also happened to be a Sunday, so the Cliffs were really crowded. If you can go mid-week I definitely recommend doing that. We still managed to get some great imagery and avoid the crowds a bit by walking far to the left (if you’re afraid of heights don’t even bother doing that). After we spent some time at the Cliffs, it was cloudy, rainy and sunny in the hour timeframe we were there, we headed to Doolin for lunch. Doolin is such a quaint little seaside village.

On the way, we pulled off on this road because we thought we saw a castle on our drive to the Cliffs of Moher. Sure enough, just a few hundred feet ahead was Doonagore Castle. There was no signage and it wasn’t mentioned on any of the maps we had but it was a breathtaking sight to see. We made our way to Doolin and had lunch outside at the Ivy Cottage, the fish & chips did not disappoint! After lunch we hopped back into the Wild Atlantic Way and made a stop at Fanore Beach. It’s famous for surfing and there were tons of surfers and swimmers there when we went. I was bundled up in a sweater and jacket and locals were swimming in shorts and bathings suits!
