You go travelling in Ireland, this has to be near the top of your list of places to go for scenery. The Cliffs of Moher are a section of the Irish coastline that, at their highest point near the visitor’s center, rise 700 feet above the Atlantic Ocean.
The Cliffs of Moher Coastal Walk is a 13 km trail that runs along top the cliffs from Doolin to Hags Head. The path closely follows the edge of the cliffs offering incredible views that are both spectacular, and frightening.
The trail starts on the road at Doolin which leads into a gravel track which for the most part is a remote trail, with no barriers, handrails or seaward fencing until you get to the and protected paths at the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Centre. Though this trail is quite flat still has some rugged and uneven in places and does require stepping over some rocks and the occasional slight incline or descent.
The path brings you up close with the natural habitats of the sea birds nesting along the rugged coastline where the Cliffs of Moher meet the Atlantic ocean.
You can start the walk outside O’Connors Pub, just across the Bridge from Sea View House, Pat gives a unique local insight into the Cliffs themselves, whilst taking in the spectacular views across Galway Bay and the local landscape.
