Day 11 - Cliffs and Corcomroe Abbey

Hey everyone! Today is May 25, which is one of the most amazing days we’ve had in Ireland. After breakfast, we set out at 9am and made our trip to the Cliffs of Moher. What we saw today was the magnificent view of the cliffs along with the peaceful way of life on the farm near there. We took great pictures under the blue sky with the awesome wind and the finest weather, and it was peaceful. I sat on the grass for a while enjoying the best offer of the nature. A musician played harp on the sidewalk and all the people were taking pictures. They wanted to capture one of the greatest memories of their lives.

After buying gifts and souvenirs for friends at the gift shop, we headed to the Durren. We saw a lot of graves and architectures there, and we took pictures with them. After a short break and the fast lunch, we made our way to North Ireland. It was an eight hour drive, and we sang songs together and shared snacks. Everyone was laughing, and it was more fun than we could have asked. I will never forget it.

On the way here, we made a little detour to the Corcomroe Abbey. There was a famous cylinder architecture that looks like a monument located in the middle of the Abbey. There is an old saying that if you can wrap your arms around it, you are going to have a baby in 9 months. The guys tried, and Riley successfully did it! We took group pictures and an awkward family photo in front of the sculpture and we moved on to our hostel. Although we spent a long time on the bus, we had so much fun today and we are so excited to be here in Northern Ireland!
