Where Rock and Water Meet
The greens, the blues, the browns. Throw in a cliff diver or two, and some crashing waves. The drama of cliffside views—from remote Galapagos to entirely accessible Sutro Baths in San Francisco—never gets old.

Taunt the Rock Monsters, Cliffs of Moher, County Clare, Ireland.

Large arrow left

Fancy yourself a brave one, do ye? Aye, aye, then the Cliffs of Moher are right up your alley. Ireland's most popular tourist destination does not disappoint, though visiting during the middle of the day means you're going to have to share the walking paths with plenty of other folk - most of them American visitors in their finest Notre Dame Fighting Irish t-shirts. Come early in the morning or late in the afternoon and you'll have the cliffs, beautiful light, and ancient rock monsters all to yourself. That's right; rock monsters. That's one giving tourists the finger right there in the ocean.
