We left early for a planned day drive to the Cliffs of Moher.  The weather changed and the day was beautiful, warm, and sunny.  We wandered the coastal route making the 90 minute drive into a four hour scenic adventure.  We stopped at a beach along the way and had a picnic.  We reached the village of Quilty around 5PM and located our Airbnb cottage for the night.  Once again we discovered a brand new stand alone vacation rental next to the main house, beautifully appointed and perfect for single night stay.   Right on the water, our front window had a dramatic view of the water...and the sunset.  Carol roasted a turket breast, along with the traditional side dishes, and we enjoyed a mini-thanksgiving dinner.

In the morning the day was glorious...just as we had planned...LOL...and we drive the 30 minutes north to the Cliffs of Moher.  Parking was a breeze since we were do early.  The crowd was minimal and we toured both the visitor center and then walked the cliff path admiring the views.

The visitor center was built into the hillside so as to not distract from the cliffs.

 Even the vendor stalls were nicely downplayed.
 The cliffs were amazing.
