Cliffs of Moher Cruises

The Cliffs of Moher, County Clare

As you leave Lahinch travelling north, you will pass through Liscannor and dart inland for a bit.

Within a few miles, depending on the season, you will notice a thickening of traffic and the odd bus.

This is how you will know you are getting close to the Cliffs of Moher.

There'll be plenty of warning, mind you, but keep your eyes drifting to the left. Soon you will seen the large parking lot and a path leading up to one of the grandest sights in all of Ireland.

It's a bit dangerous so keep the wee ones on a leash if you can.

From the top of the look-out point at O'Brien's tower (where the photo above was taken) you'll be able to see miles to the south south and the beautiful stretch of cliffs coming out of the sea.

If you want to climb higher on the path, you will soon come to an ancient castle outlook.

A new visitors' centre has recently opened at the cliffs and admissions is being charged to the coach busses for the first time.

The companies are not happy about it but it is well worth the trip for visitors to Ireland.

An alternative to crowding through the mass of tourists at the top is to take the Cliffs of Moher cruise.

The Cliffs are the highest in Europe at over 400 feet above the Atlantic. O'Brien's tower is north on the path to the cliffs and it is the best vantage point for taking photos.

There are no hotels at the tourist centre but the cliffs are an easy drive from the hotels listed below.
