Ireland, with its rolling green hills, thatched-roof cottages, castles and fairy and druid lore, is a magical travel destination. Rising 700 feet above the Atlantic Ocean, the Cliffs of Moher are a breathtaking backdrop for many movies, including "The Princess Bride," where they were referred to as the "Cliffs of Insanity." One can envision Heathcliff and Catherine embracing on the edge, as the turbulent sea crashes against the rocks.
