The Cliffs of Moher are one of Ireland's top Visitor attractions. The Cliffs are 214m high at the highest point and range for 8 kilometres over the Atlantic Ocean on the western seaboard of County Clare. O'Brien's Tower stands proudly on a headland of the majestic Cliffs. From the Cliffs one can see the Aran Islands, Galway Bay, as well as The Twelve Pins, the Maum Turk Mountains in Connemara and Loop Head to the South.
Something special is happening at the mighty Cliffs of Moher. The famous site is the location of a major tourism project creating a new Visitor Experience at the Cliffs of Moher. The project, driven by Clare County Council, includes construction of an award winning visitor centre containing the state of the art interpretive centre, ATLANTIC EDGE, as well as state of the art visitor facilities.
The building has been sunken into the contours of the land and is covered by the grass hillside. There are also significant works at the cliff edge. Construction of the Cliffs of Moher New Visitor Experience began in April 2005 and the new facilities opened to the public on Thursday 08th February 2007.
The opening of the new centre also saw the introduction of a new visitor management plan to cope with the number of visitors that visit this inspiring location - close to one million every year.
