In the early 19th century, the then landowner, Cornelius OBrien, parliamentarian, and proud Clare man, built O’Brien’s Tower so that the expansive cliff views across the Atlantic Ocean from Liscannor Bay to Galway Bay could be fully appreciated. This paved the way for todays centre to be the top visitor attraction in Ireland and on the Wild Atlantic Way.It is now part of the Burren and Cliffs of Moher UNESCO Global Geopark supporting sustainable tourism and has been a special protected area for birds and wildlife since 1979, home to 35 different species of birds.

The Cliffs rise to 702 feet (214 m) at their highest point and range for 8 kms (5 miles) over the Atlantic ocean. The sheer scale and dramatic impact of the cliffs never cease to amaze and delight in equal measure. Whatever the weather conditions, the Cliffs provide an amazing visual experience.
The Cliffs are a special protection area (SPA) for seabirds with over 20 species represented. Every year we welcome over 30,000 breeding pairs including guillemots, falcons, razorbills, kittiwakes, peregrine, and the cute puffins. The Cliffs of Moher are also home to many rare flora including cat’s-ear and sea pink.
The Cliffs are part of the Burren and Cliffs of Moher UNESCO Global Geopark. It supports people and organisations to work together to ensure a cared-for landscape, a better-understood heritage, more sustainable tourism, a vibrant community, and strengthened livelihoods and works with the Burren Ecotourism Network.
