Cliffs of Moher, Liscannor

4.7
#1 of 182 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!

  • Tour guide was very nice and informative. She was very knowledgeable of the history and legends of the castle. Well worth the visit if you desire to see what a castle was like back in its original state. Would love to see the finished castle once it is fully restored. Don't be put off by the price of admission. The funds are being used to restore the castle so your money is well spent.
  • Truly love it here. Well maintained and a pleasant walk for all of it. Wonderful drive and lots of parking. You could easily spend a whole day here. Try and stay for the sunset. The visitor center is boring. It’s safe for kids in the main areas but there is lots of hiking that go down the whole cliff. So check it first.
  • One of the most amazing places I have ever seen. Breathtakingly beautiful from every angle. Be careful if you go past the visitor center area. I wish I could have gone when I was a bit younger but definitely worth being sore the next day. Bring a good camera. The best pictures of this place don't do it justice though. If I lived closer I would come here at least a few times a week.
  • One of the most beautiful, scenic, memorable places to visit in all of Ireland!! My family and I had a wonderful experience. We booked a package trip for a one-hour boat ride from the Doolin Pier to get up close views of the cliffs all the way to O'Brien castle point (which is the highest point of all) and back to the pier. After that we drove up the hill to explore the cliffs from above. The entire place is very well organized and staffed with very pleasant helpful people. They have a large visitor center that is built in to the cliffs on a hill, so you can walk right through and out the back to start exploring. They have all the info you need there and it is connected to a gift shop and cafe. My family and I had an experience we will remember for the rest of our lives with such breathtaking views of natural beauty, this was the highlight as the best part of our trip to Ireland!
  • Spectacular views! A must see! Very beautiful scenery but lots of tourists ;-) When you come with motorbikes you can park them at the entrance of the car park :-) but parking fee is also payable. The restaurant was very busy when we were there and seems to be too small when many coaches arrive. But good selection of food and drinks.
