The Cliffs of Moher are one of Ireland’s top Visitor attractions. The Cliffs are 214m high at the highest point and range for 8 kilometres over the Atlantic Ocean on the western seaboard of County Clare. O’Brien’s Tower stands proudly on a headland of the majestic Cliffs Moher. Visitors have access to the tower and the viewing platform on the roof, where the Cliff views are most spectacular.
From the Cliffs of Moher Clare one can see the Aran Islands, Galway Bay, as well as The Twelve Pins, the Maum Turk Mountains in Connemara and Loop Head to the South.

Due to the popularity of the Cliffs of Moher as a tourist attraction, during the months of July and August the Cliffs can become quite crowded during the peak times of the day, 11am- 3pm. It is advisable that if you are travelling to the Cliffs by car that you do so outside of these times for your maximum comfort and enjoyment of the Cliffs. The Cliffs of Moher Visitor Centre is open until 9pm in July and for most of August. See Visitor Centre opening hours.
There is plenty to do at the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience in County Clare and preparing for your visit will help you to get the most from it. How long you spend here will depend on how many of the different things you wish to do. Weather and the number of other visitors onsite will also have an impact. Remember this is one of the busiest visitor attractions on the island of Ireland. The busiest months are July & August and the busiest time of day is between 11.30am and 3pm. Weekend days are often busier than weekdays except during the school holidays. However, with our long opening hours in the summer months and our year round operation (closing only on 24th 25th & 26th December) it is possible to visit the Cliffs of Moher when it is not so busy at any time of the year.
