Everyone has to see the cliffs. They are breathtaking. Hike to them from Doolin. It's about 8 miles, but sometimes you can con a ride from a tour back to Doolin once you get there. Almost every tour company stops for lunch in Doolin after visiting the cliffs. They really are a site to see, although you will encounter plenty of tourists, souvenir carts, and various groups on your way up. If you happen to be there on a clear day you can see the Aran Islands. I've always been lucky when it comes to the weather, but I have heard that on really foggy days you can't even see the edge of the cliff so you might want to consider that when planning your trip and kind of play it by ear.
