Situated on the Wild Atlantic Way on Irelands west coast the Cliffs of Moher boast some of the most breathtaking scenery in Ireland.

Rising slowly from Doolin they ascend to over 700 feet (213 metres) stretching south for nearly five miles (8km) to Hags head. They have become one of Irelads premier tourist attraction and a must see for many people visiting Ireland.

For most people the only way they experience the Cliffs of Moher is by visiting the Co Council run Cliffs of Moher Vistor Experience. Built in 2007 at a cost of 30 million euro and occupying just one small section of the Cliffs it now attracts over 1.5 million vistors a year. Unfortunately the site and the local road network are struggling to cope with these volumes resulting in long queues and traffic delays at the Cliffs of Moher Vistor Experience during the summer months.

The best way to experienec the Cliffs is to avoid the Cliffs of Moher Vistor Experience and experience the Cliffs of Moher by exploring the Cliffs of Moher Hiking Trails. Avoid the crowds, and the tour coaches.

Experience Lush landscapes, Waterfalls, and Cliffs. Just you and nature.

The trails start in Doolin and at Hags Head and are serviced by a shuttle bus.



There is no hotel accommodation at the Cliffs of Moher, however Doolin (the closest town) is a good base from which to explore the trails along the Cliffs of Moher as it has a good supply of Hotels, bed and breakfsats, pubs and restaurants.
