The spectacular Cliffs of Moher in Ireland are located in County Clare, near the Burren Area. The highest point of the cliffs stands 710 feet high, and the cliffs themselves stretch five miles down the coast. From atop the Cliffs of Moher Ireland, visitors can see one of the most amazing views in Ireland."
Considered to be the oldest and most famous prehistoric site in all of Ireland, Newgrange is a tomb that was built from earth, wood, clay, and stone around 3100 BC, some 1000 years before the construction of the pyramids in Egypt. It consists of a long passage that leads to a cross-shaped chamber that was apparently used as a tomb, as it contains stone basins filled with cremated remains."
