We had seen these cliffs from below on the ferry the day before and were determined to see them from above as well. We were not disappointed. It is truly magnificent. To begin with the way the visitor centre has been built into the mountain and cannot really be seen is wonderful. The display inside is well worth the visit.... More

What a great hiking experience. We walked the trail all the way down to the point. A great way to escape some of the Cliffs crowds and really take in the beauty of your surroundings. Definitely wear your hiking boots and take advantage of this great trail.

this is a very good walk starting at Doolin and ending at the Cliffs of Moher - there are very clear trails and you are always fenced off from any cattle or sheep. The only thing stopping me giving this a '5' is that they don't allow you to take dogs which given that the livestock is fenced in seems... More

Farmer Pat Sweeney was to say the least a very entertaining tour guide. His passion for 'his childhood playground ' was contagious. Tony his assistant was also incredibly knowledgeable. The pair made the sometimes difficult hike a truly memorable experience. Would seriously recommend this to anyone wanting to see the real Cliffs of Moher

My wife and I recently hiked the 8 km from the visitors center into Doolin and had an amazing experience. The path hugs the cliff for much of the hike and is not for the faint of heart, but well worth the effort. The literature claims that the 8 km can be done in 2 to 2.5 hours, but that... More

My fiancé and I wanted to hit the ground running (or hiking) to help us acclimate to Ireland after a transatlantic flight and a drive from Shannon airport to Doolin. So, we thought a hike along the Cliffs of Moher would be the perfect solution. We had heard about Pat Sweeney's Coastal Walk and thought that would be the best... More

My wife and I have had the pleasure of hiking in some pretty awesome places including Glacier NP, Grand Canyon, Bryce, Tetons, Zion, Multnomah Falls, Chimney Rock, Shenandoah NP, etc. All of these hikes are beautiful and breathtaking. But, nothing can compare to the hike from Doolin to the Cliffs of Moher, especially with a guide such as Tony who... More

My family hiked the cliff walk from downtown Doolin to the top of the Cliffs of Moher and it was fantastic! The entire hike took us about three hours to complete and provided incredible views of the cliffs and the Ireland coastline. The walk traverses along the coastline and across many different farmers properties. I highly recommend this hike as... More

We walked a good bit of the extended hike. It was breezy, but not blowing a gale. Hikers need to be cautious and watch the weather as these cliffs claim lives.

The walk/hike was great. Beautiful views around every corner. I have done this hike before it became open to the well-known public/tourists and I have to say that I am was quite disappointed. The amount of tourists on the trail was 20 people too much and the amount of trash and cigarettes that were thrown on the ground and I... More
