Cliffs of Moher Coastal Walk
Experience some of Ireland's most breathtaking coastal landscapes with the Cliffs of Moher Coastal Walk in County Clare. This 20km cliff-edge trail offers unparalleled views of Galway Bay, the Aran Islands, Doolin, and the Atlantic. It connects the villages of Liscannor and Doolin via the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Centre, taking approximately 4.5 hours to complete.
With an exposed cliff-top path, this strenuous walk requires a high level of fitness, with narrow, steep ascents and descents, flagstone steps, and farm tracks. Walkers are asked to stay on the paved site, avoiding the coastal path due to the risk of landslides. The trail becomes more isolated and demanding as it progresses, with no barriers or handrails.
Ideal for seasoned walkers, the incredible cliffs and Atlantic seascapes reward your efforts. Afterwards, relax in one of the welcoming cafes nearby.
Local tips include watching out for the Aileen's wave, sought-after by surfers, which crashes against the base of Aill na Searrach (Foals' Leap), the first headland of the Cliffs of Moher, creating world-class swells that can reach 30 feet.
