The Cliffs of Moher



Stretching along 8km of the Atlantic coast of County Clare are the Cliffs of Moher. At their highest point the cliffs reach 214m.Formed over 300 million years ago in the west of Ireland during the Upper Carboniferous period they are dominated by the O’Brien’s Tower landmark which stands near to the highest point . The great sea stack (Branaunmore) at the foot of the Cliffs of Moher, and below O’Brien’s Tower, stands 67 metres high. This column of rock was once part of the cliffs but coastal erosion slowly removed the layers of rock joining it to the mainland.
This is a fabulous seabird site, with thousands of puffins, fulmar, guillemot, razorbill and kittiwakes pictured. Visitors should also scan for peregrine, and chough should be found on the grassland. There are regular boat trips to get close to the seabirds. (see birdwatching walks for more information below)
