Explore the amazing and scenic Cliffs of Moher. This adventure is not located far from Dublin and is best and most easily accessed via a tour from Dublin.

The best way to do this, or the easiest, would be by booking a tour. There is no bus that goes out to here, so you would have to rent a car otherwise. If you are staying in Dublin, you can book a tour at the Paddy Wagon Travel Agency for about 35 Euros. It's just on the main road by the giant metal pole.

The bus ride is about 3 hours and they take you to a small fishing town, some smaller cliffs, a place to buy an expensive lunch, and then the Cliffs of Moher. This is an amazing place to see if you are in Southern Ireland and is a great spot to shoot some photos. Like most places in Ireland, this spot can get extremely windy and rainy so wear some warm clothes!

The Cliffs are among Ireland's top tourist destination for good reason. If you go after hours, the crowds are mostly gone and you might be lucky enough to catch a great sunset against the cliffs.

The views from the visitors center of the Cliffs of Moher are simply spectacular. There are very few times in my life where I have been as much in awe of nature. One thing to note is that if the cliffs look dangerous to you, it is because they certainly are. The wind here can be very strong and very unpredictable, so proceed to the cliffs edges with extreme caution. I am not saying dont do it, because it is an incredible experience, but many people have died from falling off of these cliffs. I dont mean to scare anyone, but just know what you are getting into so you can enjoy the views as best as possible. I also recommend going either early morning or towards the evening, because the crowds that come in tour buses from Dublin can really make this a zoo in the middle of the day.

Visited on a rainy, unbelievably windy day in the late fall so it was completely deserted. Absolutely breathtaking, a must-see on the coast of Ireland. Walk along the cliff trail to the north to get a full experience of the ocean!

The Cliffs of Moher are incredible. They look beautiful in pictures but nothing can compare to seeing them in person. If you can swing it I would recommend renting a car and driving yourself. This gives you freedom to make as many stops along the way as you want and allows you to spend as much time at the cliffs as you want. The Cliffs of Moher are incredibly busy but most of the activity is centralized around the visitor center. If you walk aways down either path branching out from the visitor center the crowds become sparse quickly and you will be able to enjoy the sweeping vistas without much (if any) company!
