Rising a daunting 214 meters over the Atlantic Ocean, Ireland’s Cliffs of Moher have become an iconic landmark, with incredible views to boot. One of the country’s most visited attractions, the cliffs are located in County Clare, and run from near the village of Doolin for around 8 km to Hags Head (so called as the headland resembles a woman’s head gazing out to sea).

An astonishing gift of nature, the Cliffs were carved out by a gigantic river delta around 320 million years ago, and remain an imposing spectacle, with almost vertical sides plummeting towards the ocean below.
