Photography

Every visitor wants to get that photograph that captures the rugged beauty of the Cliffs of Moher. Depending on the day and time of year you visit, the images you take may be wild, wet and windy or sublime and sunny with blue sea and sky.

The best time to capture the cliffs on film depends on what kind of shot you are looking for.
If you prefer your photos without people in them, the best time to take photographs is first thing in the morning or last thing in the evening.

If you want the light hitting the cliffs, come in the hour before sunset. If you are lucky enough to be here on a bright sunny evening, a sunset shot is spectacular.

For wildlife photographers wishing to see the puffins, please note that they are here only from April to July and are largely visible first thing in the morning before they go to sea to feed. The flowers on the cliff edge in May make a nice summery picture.

Please refer to the interactive map to see what is visible from each viewpoint along the cliff.

For commercial photography please see filming at the Cliffs of Moher.
