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.

Please Note

Cliffs of Moher sightseeing

Paths and viewing areas are safe and accessible and hard surface paths are provided for easy buggy or wheelchair access.

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.

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.

Higher Education

The Cliffs also cater for third level groups who wish to have a more in depth approach to their visit. Students of all disciplines, from Earth Sciences to Sustainable Development and Engineering, will find a visit to the Cliffs adds value to their studies. Talk to us before your visit and we may be able to organise a talk from a member of the team – or feel free to book a Ranger guided tour that can focus on your area of special interest.

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.
