Visually spectacular, the Cliffs of Moher sit astride the striking landscape of the Burren on one side and the Wild Atlantic Ocean on the other.
The Cliffs of Moher rise out of the Atlantic waters to a height of over 700ft at O’Brien’s Tower and run along the coast of Clare for almost 14 kilometres (8 miles). The Cliffs were formed over 320 million years ago and today form part of the Burren and Cliffs of Moher UNESCO Global Geopark.
Walk the safe, paved pathways, view the famous Cliffs on Europe’s western frontier, and enjoy the spectacular vistas over sea, land, and sky.
Their natural beauty has inspired artists, musicians and poets for generations, as well as absorbing scientists and geologists drawn by the unique landscape in which they sit.
The Cliffs of Moher, the most famous cliffs in Ireland, will leave you awestruck, creating memories that will stay with you forever.
