Cliffs of Moher
Holiday Travel Guide

Officially one of the top destinations in Ireland, a trip to County Clare and Galway Bay would be incomplete without visiting the truly magnificent Cliffs of Moher. These sheer cliffs attract almost a million visitors every year, thanks to their outstanding height, dramatic drops and beguiling views over the frothing waves of the Atlantic Ocean far below.

At their highest, the Cliffs of Moher teeter at a staggering 700 feet and you can get even higher by climbing O’Brien’s Tower, a 19th century viewing platform on the highest peak of the cliffs. There are three separate viewing platforms, each offering unique views over the Galway Bay and Aran Islands, and the Twelve Pins Mountain Range in the distance in County Galway. Otherwise, get up close and personal to the geological marvels of the cliff face by taking a guided boat cruise.

The Cliffs of Moher don’t just offer spectacular views, boat tours and a visitor’s centre. They are also home to a perplexity of wildlife. It’s estimated that over 30,000 birds live here and you may be able to spot everything from seagulls and shags to hawks and guillemots, as well as the distinctive Atlantic Puffin. Don’t forget your binoculars!

One Ireland’s most remarkable natural wonders, enjoy the vivid panoramic views over the Atlantic and Irish landscape from the Cliffs of Moher. A regular Bus Éireann route runs from many nearby towns as well as the city of Galway, so you’ll never be too far away.
