The Cliffs of Moher...

The Cliffs of Moher from the sea

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.

Cliffs of Moher

ATLANTIC EDGE is the exciting interpretive centre now open at the Cliffs of Moher New Visitor Experience. Housed at the centre of the underground building a huge domed cave contains images, exhibits, displays & experiences that will delight young and old alike.

Visitors enter via a viewing ramp which provides access for all to the central floor. This is organised into four principal themed areas exploring different elements of the mighty Cliffs of Moher: OCEAN, ROCK, NATURE and MAN.

A selection of interactive exhibits & displays shows aspects of these themes and their connection with the Cliffs. An aerial tour entitled THE CLARE JOURNEY will appear on a central screen.

The tour continues from the central dome via a winding tunnel that evokes the many caves of the area to a theatre housing a virtual reality cliff face adventure - THE LEDGE.
