The Cliffs of Moher
Located on the West coast of Ireland on the Wild Atlantic Way, the Cliffs of Moher are one of Ireland's top Visitor attractions. The Cliffs are 214m high at the highest point and range for 8 kilometres over the Atlantic Ocean on the western seaboard of County Clare. O'Brien's Tower stands proudly on a headland of the majestic Cliffs. From the Cliffs one can see the Aran Islands, Galway Bay, as well as The Twelve Pins, the Maum Turk Mountains in Connemara and Loop Head to the South.
Opened in 2007 the grass roofed Visitor Centre is set into the hillside. The centre is a unique cave like structure which minimises the visual impact on this fabulous scenic location and uses a range of energy saving and eco-friendly features including geo-thermal, solar energy and water recycling. Inside you will find Atlantic Edge Exhibition Area, the Puffins Nest Cafe, the Long Dock Restaurant, the gift shop, a baggage store, accommodation booking and information points, graphic displays and images of the Cliffs including a stunning photo opportunity, public toilets & ATM. The centre is fully wheelchair accessible. www.cliffsofmoher.ie
