Walk Details

The Cliffs of Moher, on the rugged Atlantic coastline of County Clare will undoubtedly take your breath away. Starting our walk at the Visitor Centre this is a short walk (2.3 miles) that offers several spectacular viewpoints out across the ocean and of the tower cliffs.

The Visitor Centre is well worth spending some time in before our walk starts – giving you a background to the geology, ecology and history of this place. From here we follow the well marked path along the edge of the cliffs – taking time to pause at each of the viewpoints that offer a different perspective of this landscape – keep an eye out for the amazing array of birdlife that call these cliffs home including puffins, kittiwakes and guillemot.

You won’t want to miss the chance to climb O’Brien’s Tower for an incredible view of the cliffs and coastal landscape. It’s the perfect place to really soak in the natural beauty and wonder of here. You can feel the raw power of the Atlantic as you take in another lung full of vitamin sea!

Due to the exposed nature of this walk – please check online before going to the Cliffs of Moher to ensure they are open for you to visit. There may be seasonal or weather related closures.
