Cliffs of Moher, Liscannor

4.6
#1 of 135 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 Cliffs of Moher are one of Ireland's best-known tourist attractions and fascinating: 214 metres high towering cliffs overhanging the sea and I must say they have always a great charm seems to be at the end of the world. 8 km long and from there you can enjoy a fantastic panorama or rather magical.

  • Grand and breathtaking despite the wind. A bit crowded but it is not disturbing in front of this wonder

  • We visited the cliffs as a day trip. The journey was ok as there's new roads until the cliffs are reached... then one has to queue for quite some time to get to the car park. Unimpressed with the atte...  more »

  • Absolutely spectacular. The cliffs are a must-see for anyone visiting Ireland. Even if you're here for a day, make this your number 1 priority. P.S If you're driving, make sure to let your friends out first before entering the car park. They charged us €6 per adult to park the car (€24). A bit outrageous. I won't give less stars because of this as the cliffs are the attraction, but don't get stung like we did!
  • Majestic, magnificent creation of mother nature. The walk is very pleasant although some folks try to be a little more adventurous. Do try to stay within the area marked as safe zone for walking. We also did a boat tour to the bottom of the cliffs. A fun day trip from Dublin!
  • Picture yourself standing on the most beautiful cliffs you've ever seen gazing at the most beautiful crystal clear blue water you've ever laid your eyes upon and you'll find yourself at the Cliffs of Moher. I dreamed my whole life of coming here and was not disappointed. Such an amazing experience. P.S. Get an ice cream cone, it will change your life.... for real.
  • Probably the most amazing place I've ever been to and will ever see. You can feel the water mist from the wind and it's just breath taking. Could've spend A LOT more time there but our class was only given an hour. Would be a great place to picnic at and explore the area. There are two different sides you can walk through and it would take some time to see it all.
  • A stunning walk along the clifftops was only slightly dampened by the rain. It's a beautiful scene and we'll worth the admission fee Even the drive up to the cliffs had scenery which we had to pull over and admire.. A stunning area Just be wary about the weather... Try and view on a dry day but be prepared for wind and rain as the Atlantic breeze tends to chill
