Cliffs of Moher
Cliffs of Moher excursions depart regularly from Dublin and Galway, and typically include a guide and round-trip transportation. Some incorporate city tours, boat rides, or stops at sites such as Kilmacduagh Abbey and the Aran Islands. Multi-day Ireland adventures almost all visit the Cliffs of Moher, alongside Cork, Blarney Castle, the Ring of Kerry, and Galway Bay.
Once at the cliffs, explore several winding coastal trails and pathways, capture photos of the dramatic scenery, and visit the on-site Visitor Centre for educational exhibits and gift shops. The O’Brien’s Tower viewing platform provides stellar views over the Aran Islands, Galway, and the Atlantic Coast.
