About The Cliffs Of Moher:
The world famous Cliffs of Moher are amongst the most popular and frequented tourist sites in Ireland. Located along the windswept Atlantic coast of western County Clare, they stretch for a breathtaking 8 kilometres and rise at their highest points to over 200 meters. As well as the sheer rock faces of the cliffs themselves the area is home to a number of other geological marvels. Peer down into the sea and you'll glimpse the storm-lashed Branaunmore sea stack. Climb O'Brien's Tower and you'll see The Burren to the north, a captivating lunar-esque landscape of karst stone that holds UNESCO-listed geopark status.
Stare out across the waves on a clear day and you'll likely be able to spot the Aran Islands in Galway Bay, along with the Maumturks and Twelve Bens mountain ranges further north.
The Cliffs of Moher are also noted for their diverse wildlife, especially when it comes to seabirds. Bring along a good set of binoculars and look out for nesting colonies of Puffins, Guillemots, Razorbills and more. The Puffins can be seen from April until the end of July, when they return to the mid-Atlantic. The other two species can usually be seen on the level foot of the Brandán Mór sea stack. Turning inland you might be lucky enough to spot a few feral Bilberry goats, or some hares, rabbits and even badgers.
The Cliffs of Moher aren't just an essential visit for nature lovers, over the years they've featured prominently in film, music, television and literature. Most famously they've appeared in Harry Potter & the Half Blood Prince (as a cave holding one of Voldemort's Horcruxes), the Princess Bride (as the 'Cliffs of Insanity'), and Ryan’s Daughter.
