Rented bikes on Inish Mor
Well we have made to the town of Tralee, which is southwest of Limerick. We spent two nights in the town of Doolin. We rented bikes...again... and rode up to the cliffs of moher. The man explained 40 minutes up and less than 20 down. Man, was he right. The views were amazing. In our Morrison fashion we needed a little more than the views that could be reached by tour bus. We enquired at the tourist office about Hag's head which we had read about. She said the trail was closed and said " I'm not saying you can't do it, but I don't advise it; you may get arrested"....... So we jumped the fence and went on a 8mile trek to to Hag's head (the southern most point of the cliffs). This trail had been closed down from too may tourists being blown off the edge out to the Atlantic. It was an awesome hike and we have some great photos and memories. When we reached the Moher tower(end of the hike) the sun came out just in time for our wine and cheese picnic lunch.
Today we drove 100miles to Tralee and tomorrow we plan to explore the Dingle pennisula. After that is the Ring of Kerry and more of southwest coast.
Cheers !

Your pictures of the "Hag's Head" tower, as well as the cliffs of Mohr are beautiful. They look story book, picturesque even. ( Big word eh?. I had to spell check it. HA.)....... Oh yeah! Scotty! It is a WRX! No matter what your driving, where your driving, it's always a WXR! Be well mates. p.s. I can't remember your return date. And, have you tried Killkeny (spelling ?) yet? Cheers. -R
