The Cliffs of Moher on the west coast in County Clare are one of the most iconic Irish attractions that offer stunning views of Atlantic cliffs and coastline. The adjacent Visitor Centre hosts the Atlantic Edge exhibition and Puffins Nest café.
The Cliffs of Moher, one of Ireland's top visitor attractions, loom high over County Clare's west coast. Standing 214 metres at their highest point, the cliffs stretch for 8km along the Atlantic coastline. From the cliffs, one can see the Aran Islands, Galway Bay, The Twelve Bens, the Maam Turk Mountains in Connemara and Loop Head to the south. O'Brien's Tower, another of Ireland's most photographed landmarks, guards one prominent headland of these majestic cliffs.
