Stalactites/stalagmites - Cliffs of Moher - Dolmen


July 14
Sights: A coach trip covering The Burren, or to be more exact: Aillwee Caves, Poulnabrone Dolmen, Cliffs of Moher and Dungaire Castle - done by O'Neachtain.
    A tantalizing glimpse of Siamsa.
Main impressions: Aillwee Caves - wow! One of the only caves around with not only prehistoric (1500 years old) bear bones, but also a "bear nest". (They were very proud of it - but didn't have any pictures I could buy of it?) And I think those were my first stalactites/stalagmites. And the lighting of the caves deserved the award, it got.
    The Cliffs of Moher are supposed to be very special - 8 km long, 200 m high, a beautiful sight. Unfortunately we got some of the worst rain on the trip while we were there...
    The Dolmen (a 5000 year old tomb) was a pretty special experience too. Part of it was being told, that we would be trespassing if we walked over to it - but the bus still stopped, so we could get off?
    We wanted to see "Irish music/singing/dancing and folk drama" (Siamsa) this night. Unfortunately we learned too late, that there was a phone booking system for this show - and it seemed everybody else had used it, because the show was sold out...

Recommended: Aillwee caves. - Phone-booking of the Siamsa if you want to see the show.
