Beautiful coastal path along the impressive cliffs of Moher with outstanding views.

From July, 2020 this is a re-route as walking on the cliffs after the Cliffs of Moher Visitor's centre to Doolin is dangerous. Work is being done on the cliffs to make it safe but this is ongoing and with the Covid-19 situation is taking longer to complete than originally thought.

The re-route takes you away from the cliff edge. You need to walk on the main road for approximately 3km. Since there are not as many visitors as usual because of Covid-19 travel restrictions the road should not be too busy and there are no blind curves. This is the only other option for walking to Doolin, avoiding the cliffs.

Walk out of Liscannor past fields and farms on tarmac roads with some little ascents. When you reach the Cliffs of Moher coastal path the route turns into a smaller trail. You have a lot of viewpoints along the way and will enjoy the awesome cliffs. Around the visitor centre the path might be a little bit busy because of the tourists that come just to see the cliffs. You will then need to find the main road which you will walk along for about 3km, then turning off onto a "green road". Follow the GPS tracks all the way into Doolin.


Take your time and stay a while at the cliffs when you find a good place to stop. Around the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Center it gets busier, so a good recommendation is to pause a few kilometers before or in front of the visitor center. If you don't feel comfortable walking on the path close to the edge there is another route behind a fence, that goes parallel to the original way. You will see it. Please take care of the fence as it may be electric.

Be careful, pay close attention to your footing and do not go to close to the edge of the cliffs. If it's windy it would be better to stay on the optional path behind the fence. When you are walking on the tarmac roads, there are no pavements, so be careful with the traffic and walk on the opposite side of the road. Take particular care when walking along the main road.

Point of Interest:


Cliffs of Moher Visitor Center


During your walk you will pass the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Center. Here you can find a toilet and opportunities to buy some snacks and drinks.


One of Ireland’s most famous sights, the Cliffs of Moher are entirely vertical and the cliff edge is abrupt. On a clear day the views are tremendous, with the Aran Islands etched on the waters of Galway Bay. From the cliff edge you can just hear the booming far below as the waves crash and gnaw at the soft shale and sandstone.

If the weather is nice don't forget your sun cream and sun hut. Even though this is Ireland you can still get burnt! Take your rainproof jacket and trousers/pants with you as the weather can change in a heart beat. As you are not walking on difficult terrain we would reccommend wearing some comfortable walking shoes, but walking boots are not necessary.
