What You Will See While On A Cliffs Of Moher Tour

What You Will See While On A Cliffs Of Moher Tour

pommie travels - 3 months ago

The top tourist attraction in Ireland is the famous towering Cliffs of Moher that is located on the west coast of County Clare. UNESCO recognizes these rocky sea cliffs and the Burren’s karst limestone hills as a UNESCO Global Geopark. Aside from this, the zig-zag coastal region of traditional Irish villages and towns over hundreds of years old that surrounds the Cliffs of Moher is another reason to visit Ireland. 

The moment you look over the edge and see the magnificent sea cliffs, the place will be forever etched in your memories. In this post, youll learn the great things to see once you visit the Cliffs of Moher.

O’Brien’s Tower

In 1835, the OBriens Tower was built by Sir Cornelius O’Brien as an observation tourist tower. Since then, it has been considered the Cliffs of Moher’s highest point. One can easily access its rooftop for only an extra fee of 1 Euro per child and 2 Euros per adult. In a wonderful and eye-opening tour, you’ll see the beauty of the Cliffs of Moher and get to explore inside the OBriens Tower.

The Magnificent View of Atlantic Ocean 

The Cliffs of Moher are sea cliffs at the Burren’s southwestern edge that run for about 14 kilometers. At the southern end, the cliffs rise 120 meters above the Atlantic Ocean. Get to see the stunning views over the Atlantic Ocean and take Instagram-worthy photos of this giant body of water with the OBriens Tower as a photo background.

Aran Islands 

From the Cliffs of Moher, you’ll also get to see the Aran Islands, which is a group of three islands situated at the mouth of Galway Bay (west coast of Ireland). It has a total area of 46 square kilometers that constitutes the barony of Aran in Ireland’s County Galway. The geology of the island is primarily karst limestone that is related to County Clare’s Burren, in which it is observed in the construction of field walls.

Maumturks 

It’s also called Maamturks and its a long and broadly-straight mountain range that consists of weathered quartzite peaks in its central section. Maumturks lies opposite the Twelve Bens and the Inagh Valley and is located in Connemara in County Galway, west of Ireland. While the Maumturks aren’t popular for rock climbing, it can be done at the range’s Loch Mhám Ochóige area.

The Twelve Bens 

It’s also known as the Twelve Pins and its a mountain range that is mostly sharp-peaked with quartzite summits. It is found in the Connemara National Park in County Galway and includes the north’s Garraun Complex and several isolated peaks.

Here are some of the best things to do in the Twelve Pins: 

  • Hill Walking: John G. Dwyer, an Irish Times correspondent, described the Twelve Bens as true kickass mountains having criminally stunning views. 
  • Rock Climbing: The Twelve Pins have several rock climbing locations, including the Gleann Eighneach valley of Benncorr.

Important Things to Know Before Going to the Cliffs of Moher:

  1. There are more hotel options at Galway, and if you have a vehicle, you can stay at the Clayton Hotel Galway. Without a vehicle, you can take a public bus with direct connections going to the cliffs via the Galway Bus station. The admission fee is 6 Euros per adult, with parking included. Children under 16 years old are free. 
  2. The hours of operation during peak season are 8:00 AM to 9:00 PM. The busiest time is 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM, and the busiest months include June to August.
  3. Instead of driving yourself to the cliffs, renting a vehicle is highly recommended for safety and for you to not miss the spectacular view of the sea cliffs.
  4. Always get ready for bad weather because, in Ireland, it rains all the time. Make sure to bring rain jackets, umbrella, and sweaters.
  5. Bring a stroller inside the park if you have children with you. It has a big area and is a little hilly, so your children will get tired. While there’s a cafeteria at the facility, you can also bring plenty of snacks to satisfy your appetite. 

Conclusion

From the Cliffs of Moher, you’ll get to see the amazing view of the Atlantic Ocean where you can take selfie photos. Also, you can visit the famous OBriens Tower wherein you can see the Aran Islands, Maamturks, and the Twelve Pins. These mountain ranges are beautiful, and you can even rock climb or hill walk in some of these areas. Now youre ready to travel to Ireland and get to visit the Cliffs of Moher.
