The Cliffs of Moher has some of the highest cliff faces in all of Europe. It is also home to one of the biggest sea swells in Europe known as “Aileen’s Wave”. These magnificent cliffs are a sight to behold and on a clear day the views are spectacular. You can see the Aran Islands in Galway Bay, the Maunmturks and the Twelve Pins mountain range in County Galway.
The Cliffs are one of the most visited tourist attractions in Ireland. There are 1.5 millions visits here every single year. The Cliffs are one of the main stopping points along the “Wild Atlantic Way”. There is an official visitors centre which the majority of tourists use. Tourists are advised to use the official paths when they are visiting. This is down to safety reasons as the unofficial paths are quite dangerous. The centre charges 8 euro per adult. Children under 16 are free. This covers access to the visitor centre and the Atlantic Edge Exhibition. Your entry fee will also contribute towards the conservation and safety at the cliffs.
The oldest rocks are found of the bottom of the cliffs. These cliffs were formed between 313 and 326 million years ago.
