Great day !!!! With deception

That was a great trip! The island is really worth a visit! Unfortunately we did not count on the possibility to go swimming and therefore did not pack any swimming gear. In addition, when describing the trip and the photos, we thought that at least one trip leads directly past the Cliffs of Moher! The Cliffs of Moher can only be seen from afar. To get closer you would have to book something different, but we only understood that on the island directly before the return trip - it was then no longer possible to rebook. For me a clear misleading consciously or unconsciously?

Rather packed vessel but ok service. Only a bit expensive for our doing. We went to visit the Black Fort which is the only thing you can reach by foot within the time you have. Good walk, spectacular views! Pub we went to served heavenly lemon cake!
