Cliffs of Moher

 The Cliffs of Moher rise in places to over 215m and stretch for almost 8km. O'Brien's Tower, constructed in the early 19th century as a viewing point for Victorian tourists, is located on Mohers highest cliff. From its vantage point you can view the Clare coastline, the Aran Islands and mountains as far apart as Kerry and Connemara.

Ireland's FlagNorthern Ireland's Flag

Ireland's Flags - 26 Counties became the Irish Free State in 1922, and the 6 north-eastern Counties, Northern Ireland remained part of  Britain. No laws were passed requiring a passport for travel across the new border, this is referred to by both governments as "The Common Travel Area". British and Irish citizens may live and work freely in each other's countries. This is possible because the nationality laws of the two countries do not consider citizens of the other country to be 'Aliens'. Citizens of Ireland and the UK may vote in general elections of either or both countries. The Border is not officially marked.
