Cliffs of Moher
The spectacular Cliffs of Moher have been described as a cross between the
Grand Canyon and California's Big Sur. This not-to-be-missed natural wonder is located along Ireland's rugged west coastline (see map below), just south from the village of Doolin and just north of Lahinch in County Clare.
from the cliffs are absolutely breathtaking — the Viewing Platform on top of O’Brien’s Tower provides the best vistas — stretching west to the Aran Islands and north to Galway Bay, The Twelve Pins, the Maum Turk Mountains in Connemara and Loop Head to the South.
that about a million visitors flock to Ireland every year to see the mighty Cliffs of Moher.
Travel south from County Clare and visit Killarney and the scenic County Kerry.
Fun Killarney Sightseeing & Tours
Killarney is located in County Kerry, in Southwestern Ireland. See the ruins of Aghadoe, Gap of Dunloe, Ross Castle, Muckross House and Gardens, Torc Waterfall and spectacular views of the famed lakes of Killarney. Take a FUN Full-Day Tour of The Ring of Kerry — one of Ireland's top tourist attractions.
Killarney Sightseeing Tours & Day Trips
Stretching for almost five miles, the massive Cliffs of Moher tower over 700 feet above the raging waters of the Atlantic ocean.
Stop by the Visitor's Center (discreetly nestled in a hillside) to find out more about the natural and historical significance of these world-famous cliffs.
The Cliffs of Moher make an easy day trip from Galway to the north and Limerick to the south (both about a 1 1/2 hour's drive) — Shannon International Airport even less. Dublin (on Ireland's East Coast) is approximately 3 1/2 hours away.
The Cliffs of Moher is also close to another of Ireland's most popular natural wonders
— The Burren. Plan a fun day trip to see both of these spectacular attractions.
