Irish -The Cliffs of Moher

Is the Cliffs of Moher on your Irish itinerary? They are Ireland’s most popular tourist
destination, with more than a million tourists a year witnessing the coastline of 8 km of the rugged coastline on the Wild Atlantic Road in high winds. With miles of steep cliffs and sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean, you are worth a stop.

280 km from Dublin to the cliff, about 4 hours by car.

The Cliffs of Moher are located on the west coast of Ireland close to Liscannor village in Co.

Clare. The closest airport is Shannon International Airport approximately 50 minutes by road.

Shannon Airport has direct connections from USA and mainland Europe serving the West Coast of Ireland and the Wild Atlantic Way. Airlines serving Shannon Airport include Ryanair, Aer Lingus, Delta Airlines, United Airlines, US Airways and Air Transat.

The visit to Cliffs of Moher is definitely a highlight of Ireland. The weather in Ireland changes rapidly. You may need some luck to spend a sunny day. If you reach the Cliffs of Moher on a rainy or foggy day, the fog makes them dangerous, or you can’t see anything, you can only hear the sound of wind and waves.

Stay in Doolin
If the weather is bad, it is a good way to live in a nearby town. The weather here changes quickly, maybe you can see the blue sky and the sun in half an hour. Living in Doolin, you can take a ferry to under the cliff, or walk along the 8km coastal walkway from Doolin to Cliffs of Moher. 10 minutes by car.

Seriously, I prefer the bad weather to see the cliffs, it feels more energetic, but this is a bit dangerous, don’t get too close to the cliffs. If you fall, you will die. Remember to bring a raincoat, because you really don’t know when it will rain.
