Cliffs of Moher Visitor Centre

Cliffs of Moher Visitor Centre

Prepare for the ultimate sensory experience at the awe inspiring Cliffs of Moher. Located on county Clare’s West coast, the Cliffs stretch for 8 km /5 miles and 214 metres/700 feet above the Atlantic Ocean. The Cliffs have existed for millennia and for centuries have attracted visitors who have been captivated by their splendour and majesty. You can visit O’Brien’s Tower, built in 1835 to accommodate guests who were visiting the cliffs even back then. The Cliffs present a hugely enjoyable and memorable family day out with children admitted free of charge.

The Cliffs are home to over 60,000 nesting sea birds and the popular puffins can be seen from April to July. There are over 750 m of pathways within the Visitor Centre, with raised platforms for great viewing and 20 km of a walking trail connecting the villages of Liscannor and Doolin.

The award winning eco-friendly centre has been built nestled into the hillside and features a restaurant, cafeŽ, visitor information and gift shops.

The unmissable cliffs exhibition animates the story of the Cliffs, presenting the geology, wildlife and human aspects in an entertaining and informative way.

The Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience is open all year round with the exception of Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and St. Stephen’s Day. Opening times vary between 9.00 am 9.00 pm.  During the summer, closing time varies with sunset times. For example the Cliffs are open until 9pm for the months of July and August. Why not choose to visit later in the day during the summer when the Cliffs are less crowded and enjoy a magical sunset, great photo opportunities or a romantic picnic?

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.
