A Family Day Out

Feel the fun! Love the learning! The Cliffs of Moher are a wonderful place to visit with children – whether within a family group or in a group tour. It’s educational, inspiring, fun – all in a safe environment with world-class facilities.

Please Note

Family at the Cliffs

Paths and viewing areas are safe and accessible and hard surface paths are provided for easy buggy access to most points.

There are baby changing facilities in the ground floor toilet areas.

Our cafes cater for children and family tastes with healthy and delicious options.

The Cliffs Exhibition is rich in interesting and instructive material that makes learning about the cliffs lots of fun.

When out on the Cliff edge, ask a Ranger to tell you about the Cliffs – from the birds you can see to stories and legends.

Kids can have their picture taken with Peadar the Puffin!

Look out for the Atlantic Puffins nesting on Goat Island, between April and July. You’ll be best placed to see them on the left-hand side of the viewing platform.

Talking telescopes help you get a closer look at the view.


The Cliffs Coastal Walk that continues beyond the boundaries of the Visitor Centre to Liscannor in the South and Doolin in the North is NOT recommended for children under twelve. Those who decide to walk the trail with children should be very sure that they are supervised carefully at all times.

One of Ireland’s most famous sights, the Cliffs of Moher are entirely vertical and the cliff edge is abrupt. On a clear day the views are tremendous, with the Aran Islands etched on the waters of Galway Bay. From the cliff edge you can just hear the booming far below as the waves crash and gnaw at the soft shale and sandstone.

With a due-west exposure, sunset is the best time to visit.
