Dublin To Cliffs Of Moher

The Cliffs of Moher was voted by Irish Independent readers as Ireland’s favourite visitor attraction in 2019 and 2020. You simply cannot travel to Ireland without paying a visit to see for yourself. The Cliffs of Moher have majestically faced the Atlantic for over 350 million years and their beauty is incomparable – it is Ireland’s most visited tourist attraction and when you visit you will understand why. Because of this, it is surprisingly simple to enjoy a day trip to the Cliffs of Moher from Dublin City.

If you are wondering how to get to the Cliffs of Moher from Dublin, there are a number of methods to choose from depending on your needs and flexibility. 

Taking a coach is an affordable option and allows you to visit the cliffs and visitor centre in a single day trip from Dublin. It should be also noted that you will likely leave quite early in the morning and arrive back to Dublin later in the evening. You will also be spending a significant amount of time in the coach which may be something to consider for your own comfort. Lastly, you will likely arrive during peak times where the cliffs and visitor centre will be most crowded.

Another option which offers more flexibility for when to visit the Cliffs, as well as a bit more comfort and opportunity to explore the great things to do around Clare is to take a train and public bus which gives you the option of extending your trip to a multi-day adventure. You can get a train from Dublin City to Ennis, and then the 350 bus route from Ennis to the Cliffs of Moher.

The Cliffs of Moher are 266km from Dublin so whichever method you choose will involve a few hours of travel each way at least. With travelling such a large distance, it’s important to take the time to enjoy all there is to see and do while at the cliffs. From working your way through all the great resources in the Visitor Centre, to taking in the stunning views and making a stop along your walk to O’ Briens Tower, we advise you give yourself at least a few hours while you are here.

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.
