Reduce the Charges , not a place I would recommend to visit at those prices! A real Rip-off just to get into the Car Park and Centre even if you don`t want to visit the Cliffs. Only 3 people in our group wanted to see the Cliffs but our driver had to pay for all 24 of us just to get in the Car Park 10 Euros per head X 24 people 240 Euros. Not sure how many coach firms will visit after that.

From Ballyvaughan, take the coastal road which has the Burren on one side and the sea on the other. The Burren has an awesome rugged beauty.
The Cliffs of Moher are a must see. The view of the cliffs on a clear sunny day from any of the main viewing points are awe-inspiring. The views out to the Atlantic and the islands are breathtaking. The cliffs are well sign-posted and the approach roads are good. Parking is easy and the total cost of parking and entrance fee was 6 euros per adult.

We've been twice now to this stunning part of the world. The Cliffs and surrounding scenery is unlike anything I've ever seen before (and I've seen plenty of places of outstanding natural beauty).
The cliffs provide beautiful walks with a new view around every corner.
I recommend doing a drive from the cliffs to Ballyvaughan, then back to the cliffs along the wild Atlantic way. This loop gives an exciting drive down a hill with great views of the Burren, stunning coastal views, the opportunity to stop at a few nice coves/beaches, and a stop on fisher street (a turn towards the coast off the Wild Atlantic Way) which offers views of the Cliffs from a Distance as well as a few cafes, Restaurants and Shops.
This Loop takes between 1 hour and 2 hours depending on how often you stop, if you get stuck behind an American Tourist scared to death of the narrow roads, and if your Wife demands you stop for yet another Sheep Selfie.
The Cliffs are obviously a big tourist attraction, and there is a slight touristy feel about it, but that doesn't take away from the gorgeous views. It's definitely worth the €6 Adult Admission fee, and I reckon you could spend between 1-6 hours there depending on how keen you are to walk the whole cliff path, or if you're happy to just walk and see a bit of it. With a bit of planning you could pack a lunch and enjoy a picnic on the cliff edge. It'll be the best picnic ever. Trust me.

I visited here 30 years ago when you could walk where you wanted to. Now it is all walled in . Good for children. The visitors center is good where you can get gifts and go to the toilets(very clean even though it was very busy). There is also a restaurant and there are different bins for waste .

Several people said Cliffs of Moher were nice but not worth the drive. I disagree. We traveled from 3 hours to see the Cliffs and they were awesome!. It was absolutely stunning. Beautiful, breath taking views. Highly recommend! Be prepared for strong winds. I would not recommend taking small kids past the Cliffs property (see the signs).

The Burren is an ancient place - each time I have visited, I have felt the mystery and ties to the ancient peoples who used it, in whatever ways they used it. It is a special place.

Went to the cliffs as part of a day tour with an All tours Ireland coach. Beautiful scenery, amazing views of the cliffs. But also quite terrifying. The wind was crazy-strong! Wear warm clothes. The sea was even blown up the cliffs at one point so you may want to wear water-proof clothes as well! I'm terrified of heights so seeing people climb over the stone walls to get to the egde was pretty scary for me. The rangers did nothing to stop them. I even felt like I might be blown off at any moment too. The visitor center was modern, heated, which was a nice relief. But completely over-crowded. I wanted to get a bottle of water but the line stretched too long. Any hopes of getting a souvenir was also pretty daunting given the huge amounts of people around. Also, felt sick after watching the short film in the theatre. But still a high light to see the highest sea-cliffs in all of Europe!! Would definitely recommend it.

Phenomenal day to combine the two sites in the one day, was especially good on a fine Spring day, but would have a lot to offer at other times too.

The Cliffs are particularly heavily touristed (with good reason), but arriving early ie 8:30am meant avoiding most of the crowds. Easy walk around the top of the cliffs approx 10mins either way means greatly reduced numbers too. Each way from the main lookout is worthwhile, we took about 15min walk on direction to Doolin, then went out the 5km walk to Hag's Head. Stunning, jaw-dropping, vertigo-inducing views all around.

The National Park was an other worldly experience, very unique limestone formations and such a contrast with anything else seen in Ireland.

OK so tourists have to go somewhere to this over sold tourist site in Ireland.
During our visit I counted over 20 coaches parked up.The weather during our visit was misty with fine rain and needless to say the underground visitor centre, which resembled a nuclear bunker, was overcrowded to a point where safety could have been a concern. Surely timed arrivals for coach parties should be a urgent consideration.
The restaurant and available seating were very congested and the queue for food extended some distance, even after obtaining food, no seating was available within the restaurant. I only saw the visible presence of two members of staff by the viewing points. The gift shop was also very overcrowded and open to shoplifting.
Control of visitor numbers is urgently needed at peak times.

You will not be disappointed by the spectacular cliffs of Moher that rises 600 feet above the sea. Expect to see rock formations curved out by the actions of wind and water such as the stack and hole in the rocks. With the mighty cold wind blowing from the Atlantic Ocean on your face it is truly an enjoyable feeling and sight. If you have seen the twelve apostles of the Great Ocean drive then this one has less stacks but it is made up by the wonderful facilities of the visitor centre. Inside there is a blue screen that you can select a background scene and film yourself for ten seconds and this can be emailed to you later. Truly wonderful. Must see site.
