Visiting the Cliffs of Moher

The Cliffs of Moher tower over the rugged West County Clare coast and are known as one of Ireland’s favourite visitor experiences & tourist attractions. Walk along the safe, paved pathways and view the famous Cliffs on Europe’s western frontier. Enjoy the spectacular vistas over sea, land and sky and experience nature up close and personal.

Enjoy locally sourced gourmet food from one of the cafes, or order a scrumptious picnic to go. Picnic tables are dotted around the site and picnic blankets are available on request from reception.

There are also number of craft shops along our craftworkers street situated outside the visitor centre, as well as the craft and gift store within, offering a beautiful range of products from 80 Irish suppliers of which 65 are local or artisan.

If you’re a lover of birds, the Cliffs of Moher is one of the best places in Ireland for birdwatching. Take some time to view the activity of the 30,000 pairs of seabirds that nest at the cliffs during the breeding season. The site is a haven for seabirds as well as rare and beautiful wildflowers, offering a feast for all the senses. Binoculars are available on loan at customer services to help with your viewing experience.
