Cliffs of Moher Seabird Festival 2017

19th – 23rd May 2017. The third Annual Cliffs of Moher Seabirds Festival

A family friendly festival celebrating the presence of our feathered friends. Over 60,000 seabirds can be seen at the Cliffs of Moher during the breeding season including Puffins, Guillemots, Razorbills, Kittiwakes and Fulmars.  There is nowhere else on the mainland of Ireland where you can so easily see such a host of nesting seabirds from accessible viewing points. The Cliffs of Moher are a special protected area (SPA) under Irish & EU legislation. The area is of special importance due to the presence of bird species such as chough, fulmar, kittiwake, guillemot, razorbill and puffin.
