5th Class Tour to Aran Islands and Cliffs of MoherJune 12th, 2019
Thanks to Zuzanna Kusko’s amazing artistic talents, our class won a the chance to go on a cruise of the Cliffs of Moher. After tense negotiations in recent months, we decided to add a trip to Inis Oírr to our school tour!! We met bright-eyed and bushy tailed at 8am and set off on the bus to Doolin Pier. The ferry crossing was lovely and smooth. We had great fun playing in the playground, exploring part of the island, visiting a shipwreck, having an outdoor picnic, playing soccer, badminton and racketball, and buying some treats in the shop…it was a good opportunity to make use of our ‘cúpla focail’ sa siopa!! On the way home, we were lucky to get seats on the top deck of the ferry which brought us right under the bottom of the Cliffs of Moher. We had an amazing view of the cliffs from below. The people up doing the cliff walk looked really small. We saw a sea-stack, a sea-arch, Harry Potters cave and loads of interesting birds and sea-life. It was a fantastic day and many of us needed to recharge our batteries with a nap on the way home!!
