4.6/5 based on 8,000+ reviews on the web
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. Put Cliffs of Moher into our Liscannor vacation generator and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • We went on a cold, windy early October day. While there weren't _that_ many crowds, this was still the most crowded (popular) place we visited in our entire trip. If you are up for the hike, leave the...  read more »
  • Go without much expectation that it seem amazingly eager, seriously I say. Much quoted tours until they get excited. Bring a good camera for photos, because it is normal for it to cloud and not leave the photos as majestic as hoped. Dublin to the cliffs are like 3 hours one way. I am Chilean, I have traveled a lot for Chile and wanted to know the cliffs by the recommendations of the internet, by stage for movies and be a safety pin from Ireland. Commented that I'm from Chile because I am used to see beautiful natural places and the truth is that it was a little disappointing. There are much more beautiful, like the Torres del Paine, and innumerable locations Islands which has Chile places. Without detracting from Ireland, by the way. But the tour was rather less than expected. We went with many more expectations. We take a tour offered by an office located in a square in the sector of Temple Bar which cost a little more than 50 euros, the tour was in English, and throughout the trip they were telling stories of myths and legends of Ireland for 3 hours of ida to the cliffs - Yes, for 3 hours. Unfortunately we had a cloudy day (abnormal is that there has been a sunny day) so the photos did not so wonderful, of course. There is a medieval tower in the area which was paid about 3 euros per upload.

  • It is an impressive and overwhelming. The hike along the cliffs is accessible and stunning photos are taken. I recommend to visit the interpretation centre prior to the route and get off the App with the QR code that recommended there in detail.

  • Always spectacular but best visited before 11AM and after 4PM. This will help avoid the main times that the bus tours are in. Smaller crowds and a nicer experience. Sun set is also a great time to visit as the cliffs look westward across the Atlantic with stunning views of the sunset. Cafe serves good food, much of it locally sourced. Take the time to go into the centre for lots of information on the surrounding area and the geological history and more on the local area. Close by is the unique landscapes of The Burren, don't just visit the cliffs, stay around and explore the area.
  • A great wonder of nature. It's popular so the car park (6 💶) can be packed. The path and stairs are easy to navigate. Can you spot a location used in one of the Harry Potter movies? Hint: Don't drink the water inside 😋.
  • This was the best attraction we saw in all of Ireland. It's breathtakingly beautiful with many kilometers of trails with views of other cliffs. This should be in your top 5 things to do in Ireland, bar-none. The visitor's center is an interesting walk through as well. I wouldn't spend a majority of time here, though - get outside and walk around! The views are spectacular.
  • We spent a late morning walking around the Cliffs of Moher. We rented a car and we were able to take our time venturing out to the Cliffs and did not have to worry about making it back to the bus on time. It does cost to go see the Cliffs, but it was well worth the money! I would highly recommend going, even if it's cloudy out. Seeing this area was marvelous! We were able to beat a lot of the bus tours by going a little after it opened!
  • Very beautiful spot! Came with a bus tour. Looks like the weather can change often and quickly. When we came it was very windy. Important tip: It is best to come when there is a lot of mist in the air or when it is cloudy. The cliffs are best viewed when they are damp and the rock color is dark!
