What are the cliffs of Moher

The Cliffs of Moher are a series of sea cliffs located in County Clare, Ireland. They rise a staggering 702 feet out of the Atlantic Ocean at their highest point and stretch for about 14 kilometers along the coast. They offer sweeping views of the Maumturk Mountains, Twelve Pins, and the Aran Islands on a clear day. There is nothing like standing there, with the sea breeze in your hair and listening to the waves crash below.

The Cliffs of Moher have been a landmark for centuries. Their name derives from a ruined promontory fort called “Mothar,” which once stood on Hag’s Head, the southernmost point of the cliffs. Over time, the cliffs have served as a point of navigation for sailors, a source of inspiration for artists, and a nesting ground for a myriad of seabirds.
