School Tours in Ireland at Cliffs of Moher Visitor Centre

Fun for all the Family

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.

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

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

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.

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.
