corey says…It’s been a big year for County Clare’s Cliffs of Moher. First, the natural landmark moved one step closer to being named one of the 7 New Wonders of the World – they’ll need your help to win that one…they’re currently in the #9 spot, so cast your vote at www.new7wonders.com/nature/en/vote_on_nominees.
Secondly, they were named Best Irish Visitor Attraction at last night’s Irish Consumer Travel Awards. This is quite an honor for the County Clare attraction which opened an extensive new visitor centre in 2007.
Thousands of votes were registered when online voting took place between January 10th and March 31st 2009. Categories ranged from airlines, travel agents, tour operators, hotels, travel journalists, travel publications, destinations and, of course, visitor attractions.
The other nominees for the title included Blarney, the Giants Causeway, the Guinness Storehouse and Newgrange.
