The Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience is Ireland’s most visited Natural Attraction.

Situated at the heart of the Wild Atlantic Way on County Clare’s west coast the cliffs reach 214 metres at the highest point and stretch for 8 spectacular kilometres. The eco-friendly visitor centre building was opened in 2007, by Clare County Council the local authority, at an initial capital investment of €31.5million to provide world class visitor facilities at the iconic cliffs. The visitor centre and site contains cafes, gift shops, toilets, bicycle, motorbike, car and coach parking, picnic areas, first aid station, visitor information, seating, cliff edge walkways, viewing platforms and steps, the Cliffs Exhibition and O'Brien's Tower. The tower stands near the highest point of the Cliffs of Moher and was built in 1835 as a viewing point for tourists who were even then flocking to the Cliffs. The exhibition provides an immersive multi-media means to find about more about the geology, wildlife and human story of the Cliffs. The team of staff at the Cliffs aim to deliver a world class visitor experience in safe, welcoming and informative manner while protecting the environment. A Special Protected Area for seabirds, the Cliffs are home to over 30,000 pairs of nesting seabirds including Puffins, Guillemots, Razorbills and Kittiwakes. The Burren & Cliffs of Moher area received UNESCO Global Geopark status in 2011 and the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience is part of a network of over 60 tourism businesses in the Geopark area focusing on sustainable tourism.
