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.

  • Great place to explore. 2 hours you have to spend to visit or more together with the cinema, etc. As the weather is nice it's views are really super.

  • Absolutely beautiful. We travelled from Galway to see them & they were worth the drive. Coming from Doolin there is a little lay-by to pull into so you can see the coastline. You can then walk along t...  more »
  • What a wonderful show! There are few words to describe the majestic spectacles of nature like the cliffs of Moher. It is a place to be perceived with the senses and emotions rather than to describe in words. A beauty touching. Go! Go! Go!

  • A great place for tourists. I have only been living here in Ireland for about 6 months or so and this was definitely one of my favourite places that I have ever been in to! This place can definitely become something special for people. It is a very relaxing place. There's a good meditation room in one of the towers (the main entrance gate to COM). There's a cool tower that you can't really enter but can at least admire the exterior of. An interesting Visitors/Tourist Cave that has stories written and other. The Ocean breeze was nice. Overall I was happy with this place.
  • Awesome sight. If you are lucky and the sun is out, its breathtaking. If it isn't, still amazing. Its built up pretty well, to where its safe. If anybody manages to climb over the stone fence, and fall, that is an automatic Darwin award winner. There is a tourist center with accessible restrooms, food and shop.

  • Should be one of the seven wonders of the world. Great views when sunny. Walk the trails and be careful. Give yourself about 4 hours if you are wanting to do more than get a good picture. Arriving early beats all the tour buses as well. Must see for sure
  • Not as crowded as you’d think, and the Cliffs are breathtaking. The visitors center is a little underwhelming but a good way to spend half an hour. The supervised area ends pretty quickly and if you want to go over the fences, be careful. You can straight up fall to your death. There’s a memorial for people who have. It’s a little intense.
  • On a sunny day this place is magical! I timed our trip to the weather reports. I've been to the cliffs on a rainy day, it's spectacular even then but holy Cheezus on a Sunday day it's exceptional. The cost is 7€ per person in the car. There's a few shops offering Irish goods and a restaurant in the visitors center. The bathrooms are clean and there's an access door past the main entrance so you don't have to walk through the visitors center. I'd spend time walking around to get snaps from all the angles! Enjoy it's an amazing sight!
