The Cliffs of Moher are a breathtaking sight. They rise dramatically from the Atlantic Ocean in County Clare. The highest point is near O'Brien's Tower, which was built by Cornelius O'Brien in 1835 to attract female visitors. If you decide to visit the Cliffs, bring a warm jacket as it is very windy and cold, especially in the winter.The Cliffs of Moher are a fabulous site and a wonderful place for taking photos. On a clear day, you can see the Aran Islands and Galway Bay in the distance. This was one of the highlights of my tour to Ireland.Business hours:2008 SeasonJanuary - February: 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.March - April: 9.00 a.m. - 6.00 p.m.May & September: 8:30 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.June - August 8.30 a.m. - 8.30p.m.October: 8.30 a.m. - 6.00 p.m.November - December: 9.00 a.m. - 5.00 p.m.(Please note that the commercial units - gift shop, restaurant and cafe within the centre may close ahead of the visitor centre building itself.)Opening times will be reviewed regularly and are subject to change.
