Be mesmerized by the colossal Megalithic monument of Poulnabrone Dolmen, and then stop just outside the town of Kilfenora to admire some Celtic crosses during a brief interlude. 

Refuel with a hearty Irish lunch in the lively Doolin pub, Gus O’ Connors, esteemed for its great food and vibrant atmosphere, and then continue to the magnificent Cliffs of Moher, a natural monument that is sure to take your breath away.
