Simply beautiful. Rivals the Grand Canyon. The trail goes all the way down to Doolin, but isn't maintained after a certain point. There isn't a single view here that isn't breathtaking. Puffins nest during certain times a year, but we unfortunately missed them. Stay for sunset.

We did the trail from the south parking area to the main part of Cliffs of Moher. It was a breathtaking walk and being able to go right to the edges of the cliffs were fun as well. Highly recommended doing this hike.

The cliffs are undoubtedly impressive, but I actually prefer some of the Kerry/Dingle cliff walks that feel a bit more intimate. Also, the scads of big bus tourists is a turn-off - definitely want to get past the throngs as quickly as possible.

Beautiful views along the cliffs! Very easy, straight forward trail. Caution if you go on a windy day. Only the areas by the visitor center were heavily trafficked with tourists. I recommend starting there and walking south for the best views.

Windy but wonderful. The views are amazing. The first section was too crowded but after about a half mile the trail became quite walkable. Wear good shoes as the trail is quite uneven.

Spectacular views, but many people!

Great when the weather is nice

Loved it!

Have completely this walk loads of times it's fab never fails to impress.

I left Liscannor to get to Doolin. I started the hike around 9am. There was no one but me. Obviously, in the visitor center, it is crowded with tourists badly dressed and badly shod for the temperature of Ireland. It was super beautiful, but oh how high. Although I followed the track, I found it close to the edge sometimes. You will understand that you really do not have dizziness. The visitor center portion of Doolin was unfortunately closed.

Very pretty. After hiking we stopped at a place in town to eat and watched surfers!

We parked our rental at the northern end of the trail and took a shuttle to the southern end (7 euro per person, it’s completely worth it). Absolutely beautiful trail. The southern portion is very maintained, safe, and easy enough for virtually all skill levels (without physical limitations). As stated by others, the closer you are the visitors center, the more crowded it becomes. As we proceeded to head north from the visitors center, the crowd dissipates and the views are incredible. Unfortunately, due to more recent landslides, it becomes somewhat questionable/frightening at times (it was also intermittently raining, typical for Ireland, making it more slippery at times). Taking the trail from north to south would increase the difficulty, as it would be more of an incline than what we experienced starting at the southern end.

We part of this trail in Aug’18. This is a beautiful walk. We didn’t do the entire thing due to weather but it was well worth getting a bit wet. Definitely recommend it if weather permits. I would go back just to do it again. PS the further you go the fewer tourists...they start to dwindle / turn back...at least when we were there. Make sure you wear the right clothing and shoes as well.

beautiful! managed to catch the sunset as well! a must!
