The Cliffs of Moher are one of Ireland’s top Visitor attractions. Travelers brave the cold and fog all for the sake of seeing these famous cliffs overlooking the wild Atlantic Ocean. The cliffs are located in County Clare. These cliffs rise more than 214 meters (or about 700 feet) at their highest point, and 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. From the Cliffs 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.
From the visitor center, there are two paths along the Cliffs of Moher where you can witness dramatic perspectives of the Atlantic Ocean. The visitor center of the Cliffs of Moher features a restaurant with panoramic views overlooking the Cliffs. Make a day of it and explore the rest of County Clare.
