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 are a landmark and a favourite film location.
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.
