Whether you’re taking a coastal stroll or enjoying the views, the Cliffs of Moher are a star attraction of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. To make your trip as stress-free as possible, come prepared—here’s a list of a few things you should bring.
Comfortable shoes: Sturdy shoes with a good grip are recommended for the uneven and sometimes slippery cliffside trails.
Sun protection: Sunblock and a hat are essential if visiting in the summer months.
Warm clothing and a raincoat: Be sure to pack these items (not an umbrella—it’s too windy!) even on a warm day, as the weather can change rapidly thanks to the high Atlantic winds.
Drinking water and snacks: Day tours from Dublin can last between 10 and 15 hours, so pack enough water and snacks for the long journey.
Lunch: If you’re spending the day at the Cliffs of Moher, bring a picnic lunch—just remember to throw out your garbage. Meals are also available for purchase at the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience.
Camera: On a clear day, the views stretch as far as the Twelve Pins mountains in Connemara, the Dingle Peninsula, and the Blasket Islands in Kerry. You’ll want to capture the views.
