Reasons for trip

Travelling by train from Galway (see previous review), my sister and I arrived in Ennis. We had booked a two night stay in the Auburn Lodge Hotel and Leisure Centre ( Galway Road, Ennis, Ireland) a few miles away from the town centre. We paid 110 euros per night for a twin room with breakfast. There was no extra charge for the very good leisure facilities. We swam, boiled, steamed and relaxed before our planned trip to the Cliffs of Moher the next day.

We booked our trip to the Cliffs of Moher through the hotel and paid a very reasonable 27euros each which included being collected at the hotel. A mini bus arrived with 7 other tourists and off we went. Driving through some lovely countryside we made a few stops at places on interest along the way. A manor house with the story of a red headed Irish woman, and ancient tomb and a lovely place for lunch.

Then we were pulling into the car park and walking up the steep path to the highlight of the day. The Cliffs of Moher are stunning, with us mere mortals looking very small in comparison. Photos do not do justice to the waves throwing themselves relentlessly at the jagged rocks. The cry of the seabirds who nest on the cliff face and the vast expanses of sea. Your eyes are greedy to take it all in and search the horizon hoping you might see a rare whale. It is beautiful, surreal and we felt very lucky the sun had come out so we could see it all at its best.
