Cliffs of Moher

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by mooncross on January 1, 2006

The Cliffs of Moher must be among the most famous shorelines of the world. And rightfully so! They are a sight to behold, especially in the light of the setting sun.

In the past few years, the area around the Cliffs has been modified to handle the large amount of visitors that come gape at the sight each year. There is a large parking lot (for a fee), an information center and souvenir store, as well as a paved path leading up the hills toward the cliffs.

It can be crowded, and even more importantly, it can be very windy, so be prepared by bringing a windbreaker, even on a nice day. Though it used to be possible to hike along the cliffs, it is no longer. For safety reasons, it is also recommended you stay on the paved path.
