Cliffs of Moher, Liscannor
(4.6/5 based on 8,500+ 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.

  • Great views, but they don't let you go to the ledge anymore. There is a flat rock slab that is at the edge and you used to be able to look over the edge or lay down to look over (not the safest, but all they had to do was put a hand rail and limit the number of people out there at one time). Still pretty awesome. It was really windy and cold so wear warm clothes and a hood.
  • We held our wedding at the Cliffs and had the most wonderful experience. We were planning on doing the celebration on the edge of the Cliff but the rain and fog and wind were too aggressive. The amazing staff at O'Brien's Tower made sure we could get married inside the Tower and even carried our harpist Harp to the top! We could not have been happier with how gracious and wonderful everyone was!
  • Definitely worth a visit. Weather can really affect your experience though. Check the forecast, plan ahead and bring a raincoat with a hood anyway. We went on a late afternoon, late in September, it was a rainy drive and super wet but the Cliffs are so impressive it didn't really matter. We didn't have any crowds to push though and could enjoy the walk on our own. The visitor centre is nearby to warm up anyway should you need it and nearby Doolin is a good place to stop for a bite. A definite must do if you are visiting Ireland for the first time.
  • The place looks just like all the online pictures. New roads and parking, new tourist center. 4 shops out front for tourists trinkets, if you forget your jacket, you can buy one in one of the outside 4 shops OR inside the visitor center, DON'T PANIC if you forgot! Food upstairs. Bathrooms both up and downstairs. Very handicapped accessible. The walk to either end of the park is quite a bit, if you're old or handicapped don't plan on making it to all the sites, just getting the castle will be quite a trek. The beaches and birds are not viewable from the cliff, but will occasionally visit the top. There are a LOT of steps to either site. Handicapped to the first viewing platform is easy, but the ramps to the others are difficult.
  • I'd say if you want to visit, buy good coats and go on dreadful weather. Why? The crowds of inconsiderate people! Besides the facilities being way too small for large crowds, the Cliffs of Moher are a must visit! Spectacular views and great history and geography lessons make up for what they lack, for sure!
