Cliffs of Moher and The Burren - Wild Tracks
"The Moher cliffs are more than two hundred metres high and stretch more than eight kilometres. There are fantastic walks here and rich bird life. The most common birds here are puffins, guillemots and those hungry gulls. From O'Briens tower you can take a three hour walk. The purists among us walk our feet off. The Moher cliffs are breathtaking, even when shrouded in fog. For those who are interested the rocks are of sandstone alternated with layers of black shale. The word Burren comes from the Irish word boireann which means rock land. Burren lies in the north west of county Clare. The land is rich in contrast. Green meadows on one side and bare rocks on the other. Over the centuries each generation built a life for themselves from the tough environment."
