Photographer's Note

Perched on top of the Cliffs of Moher is O'Brien's Tower.

From Wikipedia: O'Brien's Tower marks the highest point of the Cliffs of Moher, located a short distance from the village Doolin, famous for its traditional Irish music. The tower is also near Liscannor a coastal village in County Clare, Republic of Ireland which is famous for its slate flagstones which were used at the time for fencing purposes.

The tower was built on the Cliffs of Moher in 1835 by local landlord Sir Cornellius O'Brien as an observation tower for the hundreds of Victorian tourists that frequented the cliffs during the time. On a clear day the view can extend as far as Loop Head at the southern tip of Clare and beyond to the mountains of Kerry. Looking north from O'Briens Tower, on clear days, you can see the Twelve Bens in Connemara (also known as the Twelve Pins) beyond Galway Bay, and typically the Aran Islands to the west.
