We were made pay for "parking" for four people even though just one car! Visitor centre isn't much other than tourist trap with mediocre food and coffee. I don't appreciate paying to see the naturally formed cliffs disguised as a "parking" charge.

These cliffs were absolutely stunning. Highly reccommend that you take the time to not only walk up to O'brien's Tower but also walk past the end of the marked trail. There is plenty of signage to remind you of your safety--but it is so worth it to get even better views looking back towards the Tower. Don't test your luck... More

If you are in Ireland, cliffs of moher is a must visit. I visited the place during July, its the Irish summer but there will be rain. I would suggest to check the weather forecast for cliffs before visiting. During my visit there was drizzle and fog. So the view was not that good. Even then it was breathtaking to... More

I had the most amazing time admiring the beauty of the cliffs even with strong winds and rain (added to that authentic Irish experience!) a must see!

Took a bus tour that was beyond worth the cost and time. Guide was very well versed in attractions , history, and folklore. Left from Dublin with a stop and walking tour in Galway. Then on to Doolin for lunch, which by the way was superb. Then to the cliffs, which leaves you breathless with its beauty. There is a... More

We were on a tour and stopped here for a short period of time. We didn't walk all the way to the top but got high enough to enjoy the wonderful views. To take all the walks could take several hours. The information center was loaded with information and interactive displays including one that took your photo as if you... More

Although a fab sight, it has become routine fare for tourists. If you have your own transport and want to get closer to those wild coastal cliffs, head down to Kilkee and take the single coast road to Loop head...you won't be disappointed..no coaches as it is too narrow

We visited the Cliffs during a call rally and some of the participants had been here before many years ago, saying were we in for a treat. They were shocked by the way that the whole area has been held hostage to the tourist industry and turned into a huge commercial money spinner with lines of coaches as far as... More

Early AM probably best on a clear day. If fog or overcast not much difference re time of day. Views are breathtaking for sure and each vantage point is different. You can spend hours in either direction our just do one. I would not recommend venturing past official borders as it is much less safe and not worth the risk.... More

There's nothing in any review that can take the place of seeing this awe-inspiring place. At the Grand Canyon, we started asking ourselves if we should stay longer after 45 min or so, or if we had got the gist of it. That didn't happen here. If you're in Ireland, this should be on your must see list.
