Safe-Guarding This Precious Part of Our Heritage

The team at the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience act as custodians of the Cliffs – and we are proud to work to safe-guard this precious part of our heritage. While the Cliffs of Moher may be part of our natural world, there is obviously a cost attached to ensuring its protection, upkeep and preservation. In addition, the world-class Visitor Centre is also an important asset of the Cliffs. Built to enrich the Cliffs experience, it offers visitors the benefit of state-of-the-art facilities, technology, and exhibits. For this reason, access to the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience is by admission ticket only.

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.
