The Cliffs of Moher are some of Europe’s highest sea cliffs. They've even been visited by Harry Potter
Yes, it’s a long way down – 214m to be exact. And right below you’ll find the roaring Atlantic Ocean. No wonder these soaring sea cliffs in County Clare have featured so often on the silver screen.
If you’re after visual drama, this is the place to come. Look east and you’ll see the moody Twelve Bens; look left, and there’s Loop Head Lighthouse. But moreover, look closely… this is where you’ll find one of the biggest swells in Europe – Aileen’s Wave – and if you’re lucky you might even spot a surfer.
