Description

Situated on Irelands west coast the Cliffs of Moher boast some of the most breathtaking scenery in Ireland. Rising slowly from Doolin they ascend to over 700 feet (213 metres) stretching south for nearly five miles (8km) to Hags head. They have become one of Irelands premier tourist attractions

You don't have to be a birder to appreciate the stunning setting. The cliffs below the path hold various species such as Razorbill and Atlantic Puffin. They will be visible as well as Corvids and raptors.
