TOP OF THE CLIFFS

 ELLE VIETNAM SEPTEMBER ISSUE 2014


It's been a while since my last post because I lost my camera on the way to Dublin for an event. It is the reason why I cannot take any high-quality photos for my blog. But for now, I hope that I can welcome a new baby in order to nurture my little hobby as soon as possible. 

In the mean time, you can read the feature which has been in print on ELLE Vietnam September Issue about my short trip to Cliffs of Moher few months ago. As to our landscape photo series here, I wrote some tips that I learnt experience from the trip. In addition to this, you could check the full of Vietnamese edition on ELLE Magazine here.

Now, let's enjoy!

TIPS FOR A SHORT TRIP TO THE CLIFFS OF MOHER


1. Remember check the weather forecast

You should check weather forecast before the departure day. As you know that Ireland weather is such changeable and unpredictable. Therefore, this is the best way for you to have a perfect view on the top of Cliffs of Moher. As my situation, I felt extremely fortunate when it was a beautiful day with scorching sunshine at midday even though the weather in the early morning was dismal and gloomy, just because I had a look weather forecast in the prior week. 

2. Drive a car if you can

This is absolutely my useful suggestion for you. I mean that, by doing this, you feel free and more comfortable to drive anywhere you are interested in and go sightseeing how long you want. The scene is definitely charming, touching and peaceful so that you cannot help staying there such a long time you could. 

3. Make a tour travel 

Be sure to visit all the attractions you pass on the way to Cliffs of Moher. There are some places that you can find on Google such as Aillwee Caves which is one of the oldest caves in Ireland, Poulnabrone Dolmen which is a remarkable megalithic monument tomb dating from 2500BC and also the ancient burial site for burying dead, Dunguaire Castle - a 16th Century Castle which is renowned for the Medieval Banquets during the summer months, Doolin Village and Doolin Cliffs

4. Don't wear anything you are not comfortable in 

You can take a whole day to be there from the morning until very late evening if you want to have dinner in Galway City after trip. So NEVER wear something that you are not comfortable in. You can consider jeans and a basic T-shirt or loose pants and a crop top for comfortable outfits. Finally, remembering a hat if you don't like a messy hair in the wind.
