Off we went the next day, with surprisingly clear heads to see the Cliffs of Moher which is one of the classic images of Ireland that you've probably seen before. Yes, it was beautiful and spectacular, but completely ruined by tourists. It took quite an effort to manage to get a photo WITHOUT the tourist hoardes in it, but eventually succeeded
The day was redeemed by an afternoon in a Galway pub where we watched the Munster hurling final with a bunch of locals. The game is a combination of AFL and hockey - we must have looked pretty strange - you spend most of the game ducking - it always seems as though those sticks are going to bash someones brains in - but somehow always manage to miss.
So, we headed back to Dublin the next morning a bit sad to leave, but in other ways pretty happy. We'd had enough of the endless U2 and the pretty dreadful food - it seemed like every single menu in Ireland consisted of the same three meals - Irish Stew, Beef & Guiness Pie and Irish Salmon. All served with Spuds of course. The country could do with a wee bit of diversification.
