Create an itinerary including Cliffs of Moher
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.

  • Lovely! Such a great view. This place is huge, you can take long walks. I really recommend. You can see it was a film set of some productions.
  • We came here on a sunny day!! Though when we left Dublin it was raining, when we got to the cliffs the sky was clear. Got very lucky with the weather and beautiful visibility. The views are stunning and you get to walk all along the trail/coast. The have restrooms and a rest stop/cafe in the beginning. Wait to let the crowds from busses pass you or a lull to get photos without people in it.
