Leaning out over the ocean, Cliffs of Moher represent the rugged side of coastal Ireland. The imposing cliffs rise more than 200 m (700 ft) above the Atlantic and consist mainly of shale and sandstone. More than 30,000 birds live on this rocky part of the coastline, and nearly 1 million people come to visit each year. Begin your adventure at the visitor center, featuring exhibits about the natural and historical significance of these cliffs. To observe puffins and hawks nesting in this area, bring binoculars and hike along a well-posted trail to the highest point of the cliffs, where you'll find a historical tower built in 1835. It can get windy and cold here, so dress appropriately. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Cliffs of Moher by using our Liscannor driving holiday planner.

Cliffs of Moher Reviews
Friends told me this was an unspoiled spot when they visited years ago - when there were no bus park, entry fee, strip of gift shops or crowds. For a less jostled experience, check out the Loop... more »
Great walk the cliff walk. Very slippery, they could do with putting a bit of gravel on it and make it wider in places. more »
Nature at its finest. Pathways are a bit rough. Would suggest going on your own vs. a tour as they only give about an hour which I felt was very little time to fully enjoy the views and to walk everywhere.
Amazing, breathtaking views. Definitely wear hiking boots and dress warm if visiting here. The paths are not paved and can be slippery at times, especially when it rains. Definitely worth the trip though if you're in the area. I would do this again, but I'd put a couple hours aside to do the entire trail. I only had 1hr 30min here since it was part of a tour.
