Cliffs of Moher Experience


1h 30min
The Cliffs of Moher Experience is Ireland’s top natural attraction. The Cliffs are 214m high at the highest point and range for 8 kilometres over the Atlantic Ocean on the western seaboard of County Clare. O’Brien’s Tower stands proudly on a headland of the majestic Cliffs Moher. Visitors have access to the tower and the viewing platform on the roof, where the Cliff views are most spectacular. From the Cliffs of Moher one can see the Aran Islands, Galway Bay, as well as The Twelve Pins, the Maum Turk Mountains in Connemara and Loop Head to the South. The Cliffs of Moher hosts major colonies of nesting sea birds and is one of the country’s most important bird-breeding sites. The area has been designated a Special Protection Area (SPA) for Birds and Wildlife.

The Cliffs of Moher’s elemental beauty has captivated visitors since the 19th century, making them one of Ireland’s first tourist attractions and one of the top things to do in Ireland.

The tower was built on the cliffs in 1835 by the local landlord and MP Sir Cornelius O’Brien as an observation point for the English tourists who frequented the area at the time.

It is said to have initially served as a teahouse or folly; another version tells of Cornelius building the tower in order to impress the women he was courting!

Whatever the truth, from this vantage point on a clear day you can see the Aran Islands and the Twelve Bens of Connemara across Galway Bay.
