The Cliffs of Moher

The Cliffs of Moher, also called Cliffs of Mohair, are one of Ireland’s outstanding coastal features of Ireland and one of its most beautiful landmarks. The cliffs are located in County Clare and overlook the Atlantic Ocean. They rise more than 214 meters -about 700 feet- at their highest point. One of the monuments you can see here is O’Brien’s Tower, a round stone tower built by Sir Cornelius O’Brien, a descendant of Ireland’s High King Brian Boru.

There are many animals living on the cliffs. Most of these are birds, with an estimated 30,000 birds, representing more than 20 species such as gulls, hawks, ravens, shags, etc.

The Centre “Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience” was built to allow people to become environmentally sensitive, and visitors can explore topic such as the use of renewable energy systems.

The wonderful sights attract almost one million visitors per year. Since there are no barriers, visitors must be extremely careful not to fall down the cliffs. Ferry trips are another interesting option to view the cliffs from sea level.
