The Best View in Ireland?
One place is top of our list for very good reason! The cliffs of Moher are famous for their views over the Atlantic Ocean, so much so that you can make your visit into a full day activity.
These are extremely high cliffs! The good news is that safe path boundaries are in place while tour groups can help you find the very best highlights including other attractions along the way such as O’Brien’s Tower.
This tower is a superb lookout, as is Pollboy in the lower part of the cliffs where many people stop to catch their breath after taking in the stunning views.
Perfect for Photos
If you’re a keen photographer a great spot near the village of Liscannor is St Kilmacrehy Church. The church has beautiful ruins those with an eye for a great photo will be sure to appreciate.
The tower – the beautiful stone ruins of an old large watchtower that was used to watch over the Atlantic – sits on top of the Moher cliffs looking over the Atlantic Ocean along the Wild Atlantic Way. Recommended!
