From Visitor Centre to O'Brien's Tower

So they this cliffs model exhibit at the entrance and yes, you need to PAY to see the cliffs but it is included if you join a day trip. According to Wikipedia, the cliffs receive almost one million visitors a year... just look at crowd.

About the that tower, it is said that O'Briens built it to impress female visitors. Not so impressive when I have to pay €2 AGAIN to get in.

RESTRICTED AREA

Followed the trail until I come across with the fence that prohibit visitors into "Private Property". Nobody cares we just jump over the fences. And you will reach a picture perfect place where you can the Branaunmore sea stack up-close. The path to Hag's Head was so narrow at some point so I choose to turned back. I down want to drop dead from 200 metres.

And finally, the last and the cutest pic of this trip, captured while waiting for the bus to Galway. Raven is such a BIG bird!

And gorgoues...
