The Cliffs of Moher, Ireland’s Greatest Natural Treasure
See the cliffs from the sea
The Cliffs of Moher form a continuous 8km rocky wall from Doolin to Liscannor.
They are made up of various types of perpendicular or overhanging rocks including sandstone, siltstone and shale. These cliffs have been broken into the most fantastic forms, and eroded into hundreds of caves by the relentless pounding of the Atlantic waves. The headlands range in height from 407 to 700 feet (124m to 214m) and Cornelius O’Brien built a viewing tower close to the highest point in the 1800s.
The Cliffs of Moher Cruise is fast becoming one of the top tourist attractions in Ireland. This stunning cruise is an unmissable part of your County Clare itinerary. Our boats position you with the best views of the Cliffs of Moher – you cannot but marvel at their scale when you are literally craning to admire them from sea level.
Definitely a trip to remember on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.
