I’ve been so excited to share this blog post with you guys, it’s one of my favorites so far from our recent trip to Ireland. In this post and vlog, you’ll see our crew exploring what I believe is the most iconic landscape in Ireland…the Cliffs of Moher.
As our group of six made it up the Wild Atlantic Way from Kerry, our next stop was the Cliff Coast. This section of Ireland is full of iconic and dramatic cliff views, that honestly took my breath away. It was astonishing to me that a country covered in gray skies and rain storms could be so green.
So when the day arrived, I woke up early, jumped in the shower and did my hair and makeup. Notice in the vlog below how I say not to cake on makeup due to the rain, well I believe I totally jinxed us with the weather. Initially, it said it would slightly rain so I wasn’t too concerned with my hair, makeup, and outfit of choice…but boy was I wrong.
Anyway, it was a bit of a rocky start to the day as our boat tour of the cliffs got canceled along with our hotel forgetting to tell us that they never booked our walking tour…which, by the way, started outside in a parking lot. Unfortunately, after sitting 30min outside in a rainy parking lot, our hotel emailed us saying ‘oops’, I just about had it so we decided to screw it and take ourselves on our own tour.
As we drove onward towards The Cliffs, I was 100% in my element. Yellow rain jacket was on, a wool scarf was keeping me warm and I was ready to take on the world. The joke was on me because the moment we stepped outside of the car and into the viewing area of The Cliffs of Moher it started to POUR.
I mean pour to the point where my white linen dress was COMPLETELY see through…and once again I was the official flasher of Ireland, only this time in a white see-through dress. MY LIFE GUYS.
It was one of those moments in life where you just had to laugh. We literally were slipping and sliding all the way up the Cliffs of Moher, Matt took a few diggers and I got shocked by an electric fence, all of which was captured on camera by our video photographer/my sister Tessie. It is by far the funniest vlog because it just shows you life happens, and the weather is the weather.
I can’t tell you how many times it’s rained on me during a photoshoot, but rallying always results in the best and most authentic pictures and in this case video.
Even in the rain the cliffs were beautiful, and I would 100% recommend it, and make sure to get there early (10 AM ish) to beat the crowds. After the cliffs, we went to a pub to dry off and ended up deciding on visiting the Burren Perfumery. Andrew (my brother), Matt and my Dad dropped us girls off to tour the gardens and sniff our hearts out.
It was really interesting seeing how long and diligent the perfume process is and when we were all done with the tour we stopped for a cup of tea. It was quite relaxing until the boys forgot to pick us up and we had to wait outside the closed perfumery in the pouring rain for an hour.
Anyway, after a crazy and very wet day I was excited to take a hot shower, re-blow-dry my hair and watch the hilarious footage of us on the cliffs. It was a very cozy and warm way to end a damp and somewhat hectic (with plans falling through) day.
One of my favorite parts of the entire Ireland vacation was getting to bunk with Tessie; especially after the new Taylor Swift song was released. We got ready for an oh so interesting dinner with that song on repeat, that night.
Finally, I hope you guys are enjoying the vlogs!!! We only have two more Ireland posts to go, so we’ll see you back here on Friday for our final stop…Ashford Castle!
