The Cliffs of Moher & The Burren

The Cliffs Of Moher, in County Clare, are Ireland’s most visited natural attraction with a magical vista that captures the hearts of one million visitors every year and is a Signature Discovery Point in the heart of the Wild Atlantic Way.  They stretch for 8km (5miles), as the crow flies, along the Atlantic coast of County Clare in the west of Ireland and reach 214m (702 feet) at their highest point at Knockardakin just north of O’Brien’s Tower.

At the southern end of the Cliffs of Moher stands Hags Head a natural rocky promontory that resembles a seated woman when viewed from the north. In the ancient Gaelic language, the word Mothar means “ruined fort” and a 1st century BC fort stood where Moher tower now stands. Therefore the Cliffs of Moher means the cliffs of the ruined fort and although there is no trace remaining of this two-thousand-year-old fort it has given the name to the cliffs which are visited annually by almost one million visitors.

Visitor Experience is located almost midway along these spectacular cliffs and the site is home to an environmentally friendly visitor center set into the hillside, O’Brien’s Tower – a 19th-century viewing tower, and 800 meters of protected cliff side pathways, viewing areas and steps.
