First half (coming from Doolin) is incredibly beautiful, with very few people on the road. Second half was flooded by tourists. However, the cliffs are fascinating, with or without tourists. After rain some parts of this trail are muddy and slippery.

Très belle randonnée sur les mythiques falaises de Moher. Fait avec un temps splendide. La première partie de la rando est très facile. Cependant faire très attention, deux passages sont à un pas de la falaise et en cas de forte rafale cela me semble très dangereux. Cependant vous avez une route alternative qui s’enfonce un peu plus dans les terres évitant ses deux passages. La randonnée comporte quelques montées, mais rien d’insurmontable. Vous arrivez sur la tour qui surplombe les falaises et qui est très touristique. CONSEIL: si le temps le permet, le coucher de soleil qui est juste éblouissant.

WICKED AWESOME TRAIL!! Right along the Cliffs of Moher. Be careful as parts of the trail are a bit unstable. Nothing else like it.

À noter que la portion du centre des visiteurs jusqu’à Doolin était fermée aujourd’hui. Pour combien de temps ? Il faudrait vérifier..

Just day hiked Doolin to the Cliffs of Moher and back. Was an amazing trek, from fields to examining the beautiful Atlantic coast along the way made it very scenic. Also you get to feel like you’re “rising” with the cliffs as you gain elevation into the park (free admission). TIP: you will notice a divergent trail “off the beaten path” about 1-1.5 miles in. It allows you to walk right along the cliff all the way to Moher, very very cool!

One of my top 10 hikes of all time. Have Patrick Sweeney give you tour/hike since he mostly built trail (Doolin cliff walks).

First to Review

An absolutely beautiful extension of the Cliffs of Moher walk! View after view of dramatic cliffs, no matter what size. Of all the hikes I did in Ireland, this is in my top two. The spray of the ocean hitting the cliffs will sometimes spray up and make the stone parts of the path slippery, but it'll also help cool you down. I cannot recommend this trail enough.
