Cliffs of Moher

The Cliffs of Moher are located in the parish of Liscannor, in County Clare, Ireland.
The cliffs rise 120 meters above the Atlantic Ocean at Hag's Head and reach their maximum height of 214 meters just north of O'Brien's Tower, eight kilometers away. The cliffs have one of Ireland's most spectacular views.

Visitors can see 300 million year old river channels cutting through the base of the cliffs.
There is much fauna living on the cliffs. Most of it is birds, with an estimated 30,000 birds from 29 species. These include the well-known Atlantic Puffins, which live in large colonies at remote parts of the cliffs and on the small Goat Island. Also here are hawks, gulls, guillemots, shags, ravens and choughs.

The Cliffs of Moher is amongst the most popular tourist destinations in Ireland, and topped the list of attractions in 2006 by having almost one million visitors.
The site has been developed by Clare County Council to allow visitors to experience the Cliffs, without the distraction of man-made amenities or features. Following this approach, the "Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience" is built into a hillside close to the Cliffs, blending naturally with the surrounding countryside.
Officially opened in February 2007, having been planned and built over a 17 year period, the 32 million facility features a range of interactive media, exploring topics such as the origin of the Cliffs in local and global geological contexts, the bird and fish life in the area, and much more.

There is a fee of 8,00 per car for admission. This covers all people in the car and is named a "facilities charge" - it includes access to the visitor centre building, parking and a contribution for the conservation and safety at the cliffs. Visitors to the Atlantic Edge exhibition are charged an extra 4.95 euros per adult.
Ferry trips also take tourists to view the Cliffs of Moher from sea level.

Accommodation in the area can be found in hotels like Ross Lake House Hotel, Moy House.
