What is So Great about The Cliffs of Moher?

Well, it’s all about landscape. These are some of the most spectacular cliffs in Europe. Towering above The Wild Atlantic they stretch for 8 kilometres and reach a height of 702 feet (214 metres). Buffeted by the huge waves and surf of the Atlantic they have withstood the test of time to create one of the most stunning landscapes in Ireland.

The cliffs which are composed of sandstone, siltstone and shale have eroded in a way which leaves inlets, caves and sea stacks to form this amazing scene.
The cliffs are home to numerous species of birds and wildlife and interesting flora and fauna.
