On Cliffs and Crosses

Meanwhile I’m back in Dublin. Leaving Dingle, I took the road north towards Tabert, crossed the Shannon and headed to Liscannor.

This place is quite famous because it’s close to the Cliffs of Moher, one of the most spectacular and scenic parts of the irish coast. But of cause, this also attracts lots of tourist, so the area is quite crowded.

The sky was cloudy, so no chance for a nice sunset and sunlight on the cliff. Instead, I waited until all the tourists left the area and did some night shots of O’Brien’s Tower, which stand hight above the cliff. This time, my torch was not really bright enough to light up the tower, but I think the result is still okay.

Yesterday I left Liscannor and drove to Bunratty to visit the Castle and Folk Park. The castle was built around 1425 and restored in the 1960’s.

On my way back to Dublin, I wanted to stop by at some of the most famous high crosses. But the rain was way too heavy, so I could only make a short stop in Castledermot, County Kildare.

Now I’m sitting in a hotel in Dublin. Tomorrow I’ll have to fly back home to Germany. But I know for sure, I’ll be back to Ireland some day.
