Rising over 200m above sea level, the Cliffs of Moher are one of Ireland's most popular tourist destination. This coastal walk begins at the visitors centre and follows the coastline to Doolin. From the coast, you can see the Aran Islands, mountain ranges to the north, and Loop Head to the south. Keep your eyes peeled for sea life off the coast - many visitors see seals, dolphins, whales, and more.

Blessed with blue skies and mild weather made this even more spectacular.

Beautiful must do hike. Do not recommend taking children on the entire hike.

Loved the views! The only part that’s frustrating is of course there is a lot of tourists. At some points you can get in a bit of a jam since one trail is narrow and there’s crowds of people walking, so keep that in mind if you’re in a time crunch. Always make sure you don’t get too close to the edge since there is usually very strong winds and people have fallen off. I highly recommend making a day of it, the views are beautiful.

A fantastic trail with beautiful views! The beginning was a bit crowded but once you go past the "official" paved trail there aren't as many people.

Did this 9/18/19, perfect bright sunny day. Very crowded. Be careful not to touch the fence along the narrow path when you move over to let other hikers pass, it is electrified! WOW...what a surprise.

Easier hike but amazing views

Amazing beauty. Didn’t start recording until end of trail back. Walk past the tourist. There is no protection from falling off the cliffs most of the trail so be careful or at least have life insurance.

Excellent walk along the cliff side! Gets really crowded. Only a part of the trail has walls as the ends of it are off of the park territory. Really enjoyed the views here!

Beautiful coastline path. Some muddy sections and heaps of people. We started south of the large car park, on private land. We paid €5.00 per person to park. It’s €8.00 pp at the centre car park. Less foot traffic at the south section too. High recommend for anyone.

Gorgeous cliff side walk. It will take your breathe away and your life if you try to get to risky taking a selfie on the edge. Two people die a day out here so be smart especially with the unexpected costal winds. Absolutely gorgeous though a hike you wont regret taking in Ireland!

This was unbelievable - one of the coolest hikes I’ve ever done, but you have to be careful you’re following the right trail signs and take the coastal path; otherwise, you end up on a more beautiful but more dangerous path!

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.

Out of this world views I will never forget. Watching the puffers fly alongside the cliffs was amazing. We went an 1.5 hours before sunset and it was perfect. It is very, very windy, so I highly recommend a hat to cover your ears. Be careful. It's windy and there aren't any guard rails for the trails/cliff edges.

Je suis partie de Liscannor pour me rendre jusqu’à Doolin. J’ai débuté la randonnée vers 9h. Il n’y avait personne d’autre que moi. Évidemment, rendu au centre des visiteurs, c’est bondé de touristes mal habillés et mal chaussés pour la température d’Irlande. C’était super beau, mais oh combien haut. Malgré que je suivais la piste, je trouvais ça proche du bord certaines fois. Vous aurez compris qu’il ne faut vraiment pas avoir le vertige. La portion du centre des visiteurs à Doolin était malheureusement fermée.
