About Cliffs of Moher
The spectacular 5 mile long Cliffs of Moher rise up between nearly 400 to 700 feet from the coastal waters. They are one of Ireland’s top tourist attractions, which isn’t surprising given the outstanding views from the top. Visitors are able to hike along trails at the top. The more adventurous can even venture out to the edge of the cliffs and stick their heads over the edge. It can be awe inspiring to have the wind rush against your face and see the dizzying plunge to the water below.

The cliffs of Moher was amazing! We went before the visiter center was complete so we didn't have to pay for parking but I'm sure you will now. We were there in the middle of March and went in the late afternoon. It was starting to get cold, so I suggest going earlier in the day. However, seeing the sunset over the cliffs was amazing! We ended up staying back in Armagh at a youth hostel that overlooks the ocean, called Armagh City Hostel. It's near all the pubs and walking distance to the ocean. Both areas are great for relaxing or renting a bike and touring the area.

One of the main tourist attractions in Ireland and with good reason. The sensation standing there is very powerfull. When I visited it a few years ago you only had to pay for the parking. It was very busy taking something of magic away. There are fences keeping you out of harms way but a lot of the visitors climb over it to look over the edge, not something to do when you don't like heights. Fantastic to do when you don't suffer from vertigo.

Ever see "The Princess Bride?" Well, these are the Cliffs of Insanity. For real. The long shots are of the the cliffs. It's amazing. Watch out if you want to look down- not only is the vertigo insane, but the wind will whip your head back.
It's almost like the Grand Canyon- too immense to comprehend. And only 5 or hours from Dublin if you rent a car.

The Cliffs of Moher are one of those "must see" places when visiting Ireland, however, because of that, the amount of people detracts somewhat from the beauty of them.
I much preferred some of the off-the-beaten path spots, like the Blasket Islands and Slieve League and highly recommend visiting them! If you enjoy the outdoors and natural beauty of places, these are not to be missed.

The Cliffs of Moher stretch for 8km rise up to 214 metres above the Atlantic Ocean. And if you lay down on the edge of the rock you can feel the deep and experience how small we are! We went there by bycicle, it was a little bit steep, but we knew we reach it by ourself! And we went to the other side of the fence and walking to the end of the cliffs.
