Ireland Day 4 - To Adare and the Cliffs of Moher

We had some time before leaving the area, and couldn't pass up some more time in Dingle for shopping...and seeing Fungi!  Fungi, ala the Dingle Dolphin, is a bit of a celebrity in that you can get on one of several boats and head out into the bay where Fungi will swim along with you as you collectively navigate the harbor.  He was a good sport for our boat!

We also enjoyed doing some local shopping and seeing some of the sights.  There is so much activity in this town and the sun was wonderful!  Soon we were on the road to our next stop - Adare.  And we had some amazing views of the peninsula along the way:

Adare is billed as Ireland's prettiest city and we were very impressed by the small shops and churches.

Ever since our first trip, I've been excited to be able to visit the Cliffs of Moher.  We were sufficiently rained out last time - this trip the weather was cooperating nicely.  The wind picked up once we got to the area, and so we checked into our next AirBnb (another amazing location in Ennistymon) before making the drive over.

The views...were simply breathtaking.  And I got over a bit of my issue with heights to walk the edge (oof).

For dinner, we wanted a local Irish pub experience and couldn't pass up waiting for a table at McGann's in Doolin. Excellent food, great cider, and fun entertainment!
