Cliffs of Moher
The Cliffs of Moher are the crowning glory of the Clare coastline. Like a viewing platform for prehistoric giants who wish to peer over the edge of Europe, the cliffs provide an unrivaled view across the vast boiling wildness of the Atlantic Ocean, a world unchanged since the pre-Celtic masters of magic, the Tuatha Dé Danann ruled Ireland.
The cliffs form a continuous rocky wall, perpendicular or overhanging, for 8km, varying in height from 407 to 700 feet/ 124m to 214m, broken into the most fantastic forms and tunneled into innumerable caves by the action of the waves.
The highest point is at Knockardin, near O’Brien’s Tower, which is 214m from sea level. The views from here are breath-taking:
Looking west, you can see the Aran Islands and Galway Bay;
Looking north, you see the Twelve Pins and the Maam Turk Mountains in Connemara;
Looking south you can see Loop Head and beyond to the Kerry mountains.
