The Cliffs of Moher are Ireland’s most visited natural attraction with a magical vista that captures the hearts of up to 1 million visitors each year. The Cliffs rise up to 214m (700 feet) at the highest point and range for 8km over the Atlantic Ocean on the Western seaboard of Co. Clare. The Cliffs are a Special Protected Area under the EU birds Directive 1979 and is home to Ireland's largest mainland seabird nesting colony. The historic O'Brien's Tower built in 1835 to impress female visitors stands near the highest point of the Cliffs of Moher and boasts views of 5 counties on a clear day. Opened in 2007, the eco-friendly visitor centre operates using environmental best practices with a state of the art Cliffs exhibition.

The spectacular Cliffs of Moher Coastal Walk is now open and is a moderate to strenuous 4 to 6 hour (18 km) walking route from Liscannor in the south, to Hags Head and the world famous  Cliffs of Moher and Visitor Centre and finishing in the village of Doolin in the north.
