In peak season April – September groups are recommended to come outside the peak periods 11.00am-4.00pm for maximum comfort and enjoyment. A morning visit is particularly nice when the you may be the only visitor on the cliff edge or in the evening when the seabirds are singing and the sun is going down.

You can take a day trip to the Cliffs of Moher from Ennis, Limerick Galway or Dublin all year round. A day tour usually takes a full day leaving Dublin from as early as 7.00am and returning as late as 7.00pm.  It is important to understand it is a long day travelling and you will be on a bus for a minimum of 7 hours in the day and 1.5 hours- 2 hours at the Cliffs of Moher.  The fast changing weather conditions at the Cliffs of Moher means that the Cliffs are not always visible due to dense fog or accessible due to high winds and you may be disappointed after travelling a long distance.

We recommend you spend some time in Co. Clare and stay overnight in the local towns, villages, enjoy the countryside and visit the attractions.  There are some 1 and 2 night options from Dublin with www.quicktours.ie. There are day tours from other locations around the country, check individual websites for details.

Due to the popularity of the Cliffs of Moher as a tourist attraction the visitor centre and site can become crowded during the peak times of the day 11am – 4pm, during the months May to September, and at weekends school and bank holidays at other times.  The visitor centre has extended opening hours from March to October and it is advisable that if you are travelling to the Cliffs by car or public transport that you do so outside of these times for your maximum comfort and enjoyment of your visit. The Cliffs of Moher Visitor Centre is open until 9pm in July and August.  See Visitor centre Opening Hours for the details for other months.
