The Cliffs of Moher Ireland are one of Ireland’s most popular visitor attractions. But until you see them from the Cliffs of Moher Ferry- you haven’t really seen them at all! These amazing Irish Cliffs are named from the ancient Gaelic word ‘Mothar’ (Moher) which means ruined fort.

How tall are the Cliffs of Moher?

These great sea cliffs rise to a jaw dropping height of over 214 metres (700ft) at their highest point. Our ferry sails right beneath this point just north of O’Brien’s Tower. The furthest point of the Cliffs from Doolin is Hags Head. Here you can find the 1st century fort, Moher Tower, that it is named for. It is hard to take in the magnificent height of the Cliffs of Moher until you see them from sea level. The people walking along the Cliffs of Moher trail high above appear no larger than ants!
