|Browne Doorway in Eyre Square. Our hotel was just up the street about a block from here (also called John F. Kennedy Memorial Park...he visited the square in June 1963).|
|Another view of Eyre Square. There is a sculpture depicting Galway Hookers (mind out of the gutter...they are ships) to the left of Browne Doorway.|
|1 last view of Galway|
|Thanks, M, for the use of this picture and the one below! :)|

|The Burren is one of six national parks in Ireland.|
|The landscape was so different from home but so pretty.|
Next stop: Cliffs of Moher. M kept telling me, "Wait until we get to the Cliffs of Moher; you aren't going to believe it." It was amazing.
The first thing we did was walk to O'Brien's Tower.
The views were just spectacular. It seems that every step I took, the view was just more beautiful.
|I think that's the Aran Islands.|
|A scene from "The Princess Bride" was filmed here.|
|I told these 2 men that they were very brave!|
|This is the closest I got to the edge.|
|Just for perspective: those are people near the edge.|
I didn't go all the way to the point at the end; M was waiting for me at the Visitor's Centre & I had no concept of the time.
It was a day full of beautiful views. We met back at the van and continued on our way. We had the choice to get there quickly or take our time. At that point, we were all tired & just wanted to get to Killarney. We crossed the River Shannon by ferry:
|Thanks for the picture, M!|
