Rising dramatically from the Atlantic Ocean, the Cliffs of Moher stand upwards of 214 meters above the waves below. From their highest point,you can see the mountains of Kerry, Galway Bay, and Connemara’s Twelve Bens.
Walk along the cliff edge, pondering the expanse of the Atlantic spread out before you. Seabirds lilt and careen on the breeze, with over 60,000 individual birds visiting the cliff’s 8-kilometers real-estate each year. Spot kittiwakes, peregrine falcons, and guillemots, as well as seals, dolphins, and whales out at sea.
Take your time exploring these features formed roughly 325 million years ago. Step away from the main boardwalk and admire how the cliffs rise from the waves, away from the crowds. Bask in the natural splendor of what is probably Ireland’s most famous place.
