Cliffs of Moher and the Roads

On April 8th we went to the Cliffs of Moher. They are gorgeous.

O’Brien’s Tower is at the top of one of the cliffs. We didn’t go inside of it.

There are little shops and a visitor’s center built right into the side of the cliff.

It was crazy windy!

The roads in Ireland are incredible. Some of them are barely wide enough for a single car, let alone two. They have a speed limit scheme that makes all of a certain kind of road across the country a certain speed limit. It doesn’t matter how narrow or winding the roads are. If they are classified a certain way, they are a certain speed. Everyone just kind of goes at a speed that makes sense and are very polite in trying to make room when passing another vehicle on a very narrow road. Combine all that with driving on the opposite side of the road and needless to say Jamie and his mom did all the driving. I happily stayed in the passenger seat (or, better, the backseat where I couldn’t see anything in front of me). These are all pictures of two lane roads.

Because of the speed limit scheme sometimes the road would narrow and increase in speed (in this case from 60 kph to 80 kph).

This one was just puzzling because in order to put gas in your vehicle, you’d have to be stopped in a driving lane.

And sometimes you have to wait for the cows to cross the road.
