With that in mind, here are a few pictures from towns leading up to/from the Cliffs of Moher:

Bunratty Castle – located in County Clare, Bunratty (or Bun Raite, in Irish – it means ‘end of the Ratty River’. The Ratty River flows into the Shannon River. (FYI – no flash is allowed inside the castle!)
