Cliffs of Moher and O'Briens Tower

Roadford Tower House Our first stop was the Cliffs of Moher. Along the way, we spotted this wonderful tower house outside the city of Doolin. The house sits above the South Sound looking out at the Aran Islands in the Atlantic Ocean.

The Cliffs of Moher where beautiful in the afternoon light. The cliffs rise to their maximum height of 214 meters (702 ft) just north of O'Brien's Tower. The cliffs boast one of Ireland's most spectacular views. On a clear day the Aran Islands are visible in Galway Bay, as are the valleys and hills of Connemara.

The light blue sky and deep blue water helped to accent the towering cliffs.

O'Briens Tower
O'Brien's Tower is a round stone tower at the approximate midpoint of the cliffs. It was built by Sir Cornellius O'Brien, a descendant of Ireland's High King Brian Boru, in 1835, as an observation tower for the hundreds of tourists that frequented the cliffs even at that date. From atop the watchtower, one can view the Aran Islands and Galway Bay, the Maum Turk Mountains and the Twelve Pins to the north in Connemara, and Loop Head to the south. O'Briens Tower
