Final tour day: Galway City and Cliffs of Moher

Enroute to Galway we passed through the charming village of Cong, location for the classic film, The Quiet Man, directed by John Ford.  We spent some time touring in Galway City before driving along the southern shores of Galway Bay, traversing the Burren region and viewing the magnificent (and extremely windy) Cliffs of Moher. We are headed off to a Traditional Night at the Corn Barn in Bunratty Folk Park for our final evening.
