    Cliffs of Moher

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    These cliffs are amazing. It’s a very touristy place, but it is worth it. We walked to them from Doolin (it took a few hours), but it was worth it. If you’re walking, be careful, since you will be sharing the road with cars (driving very fast). There is no separate walking trail. The Cliffs are under renovation (as of June 2006) and a wall has been built separating people from the cliff’s edge. But while we were there, people were jumping the wall and hanging out at the edge of the cliff. Becareful if you go near the edge, since strong winds have been known to blow tourists off the cliff before. There is parking lot near the Cliffs and Bus Eirran stops here from many nearby cities. There is a gift shop and restaurant close to the Cliffs.

    ..............being built, so expect a massive building site if you visit the cliffs this year. I suspect it's horrendously busy in the season, so try to visit early or late in the day. Worth seeing though.

    Walk to the Cliffs

    view of the Atlantic on the walk to the Cliffs

    The walk from Doolin to the Cliffs of Moher is about 3 miles, but it feels longer than that since it’s mostly up hill. The walk is along the Burren Way, but the entire way is along a paved road. It is a little annoying to have to move to the side for cars moving by (and there’s a lot since their also going to the Cliffs). But the walk is very beautiful and throughout it you get a great view of the villages around and the ocean.

    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...
