The Cliffs of Moherare one of Ireland’s top visitor attractions and are a designated UNESCO Geo Park.

The cliffs are 700 feet high at the highest point and range for 5 miles over the Atlantic Ocean on the western seaboard of County Clare.

O’Brien’s Tower stands proudly on a headland of the majestic cliffs.

From the cliffs 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.

The Cliffs of Moher take their name from a ruined promontory fort “Mothar” which was demolished during the Napoleonic wars to make room for a signal tower.
