You simply cannot travel to Ireland without paying a visit to one of Ireland’s top tourist attractions, the breathtaking Cliffs of Moher.
Looming over County Clare’s west coast, the cliffs stretch for 8kms and 214 metres over the Atlantic Ocean. Unchanged for millennia, the landscape of the cliffs has for centuries welcomed visitors who come to marvel at their splendour and be at one with nature. The cliffs are home to over 60,000 nesting seabirds and the popular Puffins can be seen from April to July. There are metres safe pathways to walk and raised viewing platforms for the best views. O’ Brien’s Tower, built in 1835, stands at the highest point where one can view 5 surrounding counties and the Aran Islands on a clear day. The award winning eco friendly visitor centre is set into the hillside and offers an all – weather experience. The Cliffs Exhibition must be seen and brings to life the story of the Cliffs of Moher, presenting the geology, wildlife and human aspects of the cliffs in an entertaining and educational way.
