As the Cliffs of Moher were somewhat out of our way, driving from Killarney to Galway, we decided to do it. We included a ferry ride across the river Shannon to shorten the drive. It was a nice 20 minute break in driving, plus a 20 minute wait for the ferry, still worth it. When you arrive you notice that... More

While the Cliffs of Moher are quite beautiful, don't go to the site in the morning since the sunlight, coming from the East onto the West-facing cliffs, casts a shadow over the entire sight. Instead, plan your visit based on the afternoon sunlight for the best views and photos.

Definitely worth a stop. Give yourself time to get there as the roads are narrow and winding. There is a very nice visitor center as well as paved paths and slate walls. Beyond the paved paths, to either side, you step through a farmer’s fence and can walk a well worn trail along the cliffs. Natural selection rules here…the dumb... More

Wonderful view, on a wonderful day as weather was amazing. We spent almost 3 hours however we didn't do the whole walk to the end of the cliffs, so plan more time if you are planning more trekking.

We were driving up from Ennis and some how missed the turn and almost ended up in Galway. Drove along the coast through the Burren till we hit some narrow roads. Suddenly the car park loomed up and we were there. Its a little walk up to the Cliffs, but its very well maintained. We went into the exhibition which... More

We took the ferry from Doolin in the morning to visit Inisheer in the Aran Islands. The return trip went around the bottom of the cliffs before returning. The next morning on our way out of town, we stopped to walk along the cliffs and see them from the upper vantage point. We went early to avoid the crowds and... More

The cliffs lived up to their reputation with incredible combination of height and ocean view. Windy weather and long walk up steps leading to the top are challenges, but worthwhile if you are able. O'Brien's tower (1835) is extra fee, and probably not worth it for an extra 35 feet. Visitor center includes natural history and geological exhibits, but view... More

If you just visit one place in Ireland - this is it. It would be a pitty not look at the rest of this wonderful country, there is so much more places worth visiting. The Cliffs have a parking space directly on the street passing. You have to pay and this is good! The money that comes in is used... More

We did a CIE bus tour of Ireland and the place I wanted to see the most was the Cliffs of Moher. After seeing it on television and photos online, it seemed like the most scenic place to go. When we arrived I was in awe of the cliffs, but I wish I could have gotten closer to the edge,... More

Gorgeous views and enjoyable walk to Hags Head on a beautiful sunny day. The height of the cliffs was amazing. We ate a quick lunch at the visitor center.
