Cliffs of Moher, Ireland
Ireland is known for its incredible natural beauty that can be found throughout the entire country. Endless greenery, dramatic coastlines and countryside straight out of a fairytale, Ireland is spectacular. A trip to Ireland would not be complete without a visit to the incredible Cliffs of Moher. One of the most visited places in Ireland, the Cliffs of Moher are a natural attraction waiting to be explored.
Facing the Atlantic Ocean for over 300 million years, the jagged cliffs rise to 214 metres from the seabed and stretch 8 kilometres along the coast. A nature buff’s dream, the Cliffs are home to not only spectacular scenery but a variety of flora and fauna. With over 20 species of seabirds living on the Cliffs, there is ample opportunity to spot the locals including the Atlantic Puffin, Peregrine Falcon, Guillemot and more. Directly off the Cliffs and into the water, a variety of marine life call the Atlantic home including whales, basking sharks, seals and more.
From any angle the view of the Cliffs is spectacular. Three dedicated viewing platforms are situated along the Cliffs’ edge to offer you a different vista and perspective of them. The viewing platforms are the perfect place to appreciate the natural beauty in front of you and get a closer look at the rare rock formations that have formed over 300 million years.
Another way to experience the Cliffs is at the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience. Tucked inside a domed cave on top of the Cliffs, the visitor experience provides in-depth knowledge of the Cliffs through interactive displays. Connect with nature during a visit to the Cliffs of Moher and experience this natural attraction in all its glory during our Icons of Ireland small group tour.
