The Cliffs of Moher are one of Irelands most famous attractions. And when you see our picture of the day it’s easy to see why!

Cliffs of Moher, Ireland

Rising majestically from the churning sea below, the Cliffs of Moher on the west coast of Ireland stand about 120 meters high at Hag’s Head. Offering some of the most dramatic coastal views around, visitors can see the Aran Islands in Galway Bay, the Maumturks and Twelve Pins mountain ranges to the north in County Galway, and Loop Head to the south.

Taking their name from Fort Moher which once stood on Hag’s Head, the cliffs receive almost a million visitors each year. It’s also home to around 20 different bird species!

You may have seen the cliffs on screen too – including appearances in fantasy classic ‘The Princess Bride’ and ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’, and in two episodes of British comedy classic ‘Father Ted’.

Visit the Cliffs of Moher with us on our Irish Explorer tour!
