Ireland: Of Caves & Cliffs

Sorry for the late update, My internet connection was fried so basically i didn't have any way of updating. But anyway, its fixed already and i can finally write about other things =)

So more about Ireland, I was able to visit the caves and cliffs around the area. Simply magnificent works of God which can be seen through its beauty. Also i was able to visit some of the prehistoric sites which ancient men use to live at. So basically its a blend of beauty in this post which can be seen below:

So after all the man made beauty, I was able to visit the Alwee Caves. It is also called the bear caves as bears in the past used to hibernate there and there are remains of their bones, etc etc. The interior is quite wet and there are also underground rivers & waterfalls in it which were simply fascinating!

As the day came to an end, We headed for the Cliffs of Moher. It was really breathtaking to see the sea water splash to the rocks. The winds were really strong and it was really able to push me off my feet. It was quite a hard walk up the cliffs. But it was totally worth it!
