    O���Brien���s Tower circular stairs

    If you do decide to brave O’Brien’s Tower, then beware the stairs. they are made of iron, extremely small steps and narrow. The room at the top is quite limited and during the summer, I should imagine, extremely crowded.

    The Tower on the Cliffs

    O���Brien���s Tower, The Cliffs of Moher, County Clare

    On top of one of the highest cliffs stands O’Brien’s Tower. Built in 1835 by Cornelius O’Brien, a local landlord who wanted the tower as an observation post from which to watch the turbulent sea. He also got his peasants to build a 3 mile-long wall of limestone flags to prevent visitors being sucked over the edge of the cliffs by the down-draughts. It costs 2 euros to access the tower but it is worth it as it gives some superb views of the area from the top You can also use the telescope that you find at the top for free.

    Cliffs of Moher

    The Cliffs of Moher are probably one of the most photographed places in the country. If you see them, get your picture quickly. They can become shrouded in fog and your only option will be to buy the postcard instead. We had to do that two years ago, so this time we drove through Doolin and got our pictures taken before we checked in to the lodge...

    Cliffs of Moher

    Ireland's main tourist attraction - the Cliffs of Moher - are just a few miles away south of Doolin. This makes Doolin a perfect place to stay if you want to explore the Cliffs in the morning.

    These cliffs are very exciting (especially when we were there on a day with gaelforce winds!!) and up to 200 mtrs high. Even though there's lots of tourists here I enjoyed the views very much.

    Perfect viewpoint about Cliff's of Moher. Some upstair and view Panorama, and look through a glass.
    Tower entrance fee : 1Irish pound.
