Cliffs of Moher, Liscannor

4.7
#1 of 174 in Nature in Ireland
Leaning out over the ocean, Cliffs of Moher represent the rugged side of coastal Ireland. The imposing cliffs rise more than 200 m (700 ft) above the Atlantic and consist mainly of shale and sandstone. More than 30,000 birds live on this rocky part of the coastline, and nearly 1 million people come to visit each year. Begin your adventure at the visitor center, featuring exhibits about the natural and historical significance of these cliffs. To observe puffins and hawks nesting in this area, bring binoculars and hike along a well-posted trail to the highest point of the cliffs, where you'll find a historical tower built in 1835. It can get windy and cold here, so dress appropriately. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Cliffs of Moher by using our Liscannor driving holiday planner.

  • The highest cliffs in Europe must be also the most beautiful if you have the chance to see them at sunset!

  • More crowded than anticipated, however, it is well worth visiting. I plan to return for the 10 mile hike.  more »
  • I was fortunate to have a wonderful sunny day when I visited the cliffs which made the experience even more magical. The views are absolutely breathtaking and the sound of the waves is beautiful. Park...  more »

  • The cliffs! An absolute must-see for Ireland and for a good reason. Insanely beautiful views everywhere. The ocean view and surrounding countryside is so picturesque. So glad this was part of our itinerary. The only warning I have is that the road leading to it is extremely narrow and winding. Worth all of it though.
  • No doubt the vistas are gorgeous, but I have to agree with one person who called it a tourist trap. So much of Ireland is so unspoiled and preserved, and there are so many areas where you can drive along the coast and see pristine scenery that I found this a little over-touted. We drove an hour and a half from Limerick and spent half a day of our trip to see this. If it's on your way, don't miss it, but my recommendation is think twice before driving TOO far. I'm giving it a 4 because it's very beautiful and just didn't feel right to give it a 3.
  • You can't go wrong. The price is reasonable, 💰 you're really just paying to park. The visitor's center was nice; we bought some stuff and even had breakfast there. 🚶 The main walking area is walled off for safety but there are other outlying areas you can still get to if you're daring. Awesome time there. 😁
  • This sweet spot is just amazing! During our honey moon this was really our favorite place —> horribly windy —> gently breathtaking —> lovely enjoyable It’s quite a bit dangerous to left the official path but worthy to discover. One spot is so windy that you really have to take care about you stuff. One women has loosen her iPhone in a raincoat! So take care and discover!!!
  • Amazing and the best in Ireland. The one I didn't like is they taking an entry fees as there are no gate to enter. We had a car so when we went to park it they asked for € 24 because were 4. If I dropped my friends before the parking site, no one will ask them for the ticket. I saw some people did like this. They may were familiar with the place. Anyway the place was amazing and worth to visit. If you are in Ireland you should visit it.
