You’ll recall that this rather long travel series began with Ursula and I flying to Dublin, which was our first stop on an adventure that would eventually take us to Amsterdam to catch cruise ship that would wind up taking us right back to Ireland before going transatlantic. We spent most of Day 1 in Dublin hitting the Hop-On/Hop-Off. Day 2 found us going back to specific Dublin sights, such as St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Trinity College Dublin. Day 3 started our journey into the Irish countryside, and our first photo stop on this tour was the Cliffs of Moher.
The Cliffs are themselves dramatic, but the area’s other claim to fame is that it is home to diverse flora and fauna, including 35 species of birds:
