Cliffs of Moher
Liscannor, Co. Clare
Discover the spectacular Cliffs of Moher in County Clare, one of Ireland's top visitor attractions. The sea cliffs were given UNESCO Global Geopark status in 2011.

Experience the staggering Cliffs of Moher, Ireland’s most visited natural attraction. They stretch for 8km (5 miles) and reach 214m (702 feet) at their highest point north of O’Brien’s Tower, where you can enjoy unrivalled views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Find Hags Head, a natural rocky promontory that resembles a seated woman when viewed from the north. The Cliffs of Moher means the cliffs of the ruined fort, and although the fort no longer exists, the breath taking natural wonder is named after it.

Stop by the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience midway along the sensational cliffs to explore the environmentally friendly Visitor Centre and 800 metres of protected cliff side pathways and viewing areas. Stand still and marvel at the towering heights of the soaring cliffs, their sheer scale and incredible impact amaze all who visit.
