Cliffs of Moher in Ireland

After the bad news that reached us yesterday from Norway, where a Spanish tourist died after falling from the 600 meters of height of the Prekestolen, the famous pulpit that attracts millions of tourists every year, today we want to tell you about another of the famous cliffs in all the world: Cliffs of Moher.

These cliffs are the most visited tourist attraction in Ireland, with one million people every year. Many tourists have traveled the nooks and crannies that can be seen in the photographs, either by bike or on foot, on an itinerary of about eight kilometers. In addition, last July a 12-kilometer signposted walk was inaugurated.

Area enabled for tourists

The Cliffs of Moher, on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, are approximately 8 kilometers long with heights that can reach 214 meters. As you can imagine, it is an impressive natural landscape, nominated to be part of the Seven New Wonders of Nature. In addition, it serves as a habitat for many species of birds.

It is an area fully enabled for the visit of all kinds of tourists. The most visited point, from where you get the best-known view of these cliffs, is called Hag’s Head , where the height is 120 meters.

Dangerous areas

As in the Norwegian fjords, where the Spanish tourist died, on the Cliffs of Moher there are roads where there are signs that warn of a clear danger . Still, the path is clearly marked. This means that, from these points, you are clearly under your responsibility.

It is very windy in this place, especially next to O’Brien’s Tower, so it is advisable to wear a hood or a hat.
