Cliffs of Moher
County Clare, Ireland
Soaring over 700 feet, the Cliffs of Moher are a magnificent 8-kilometer stretch of sea cliffs along the Atlantic coast of Clare. Wonderful views and fabulous seabird colonies make the Cliffs of Moher a must-see natural attraction in the west of Ireland.
One of Ireland’s principal and most spectacular natural attractions, the Cliffs of Moher are an absolute must for anyone in the West of Ireland. On a clear day you can see the Aran Islands and Galway Bay, the Maum Turk mountains in Connemara, and even as far as the Dingle Peninsula and the Blasket Islands in Kerry.
The Cliffs of Moher are also one of Ireland’s most important bird-breeding sites, with up to 30,000 breeding pairs of seabirds that from May to August fill the cliffs with their color and sound, including puffins, guillemots, razorbills, fulmars and kittiwakes.
