Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience
The Cliffs of Moher is Ireland’s most visited natural attraction with a magical vista that captures the hearts of up to 1 million visitors each year. The Cliffs rise up to 214 (700 feet) at the highest point and range for 8km over the Atlantic Ocean on the Western seaboard of Co. Clare. From the cliffs, one can see the Aran Islands, Galway Bay, The Twelve Bens, the Maam Turk Mountains in Connemara and Loop Head to the south. O’Brien’s Tower, another of Ireland’s most-photographed landmarks, guards one prominent headland of these majestic cliffs.The unusual, underground Visitor Centre also houses the exciting Atlantic Edge display. This huge, domed cave contains images, exhibits and displays which are organised into four principal themed areas, that explore the different elements of the mighty cliffs, ocean, rock, nature and man.
The Cliffs is a Special Protected Area under the EU birds Directive 1979 and is home to Ireland’s largest mainland seabird nesting colony.
