Easter in Ireland 2017: Clifs of Moher

For this visit in Ireland I had decided to do a little bit of sightseeing. There are many sights to see, but one thing that has been high on my list is the Clifs of Moher. As seen un films as Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, Ryan’s Daughter, The Princess Bride and Father Ted.

The Clifs was really as stunning as I expected. It was quite windy when we were there, but the rain decided to take a little break when we where there.

The Clifs is a Special Protected Area for Birds and is home to a lot of seabirds including quite a lot of Puffins.

Going there on Good Friday there was a lot of other people there to watch the majestic Clifs and as we got there rather late there was not to wide a selection of food left in the resturant situated in the experience centre, but we were lucky enough to get some food.

We didn’t spend too much time in the centre, as we preferred to spend more of our time out by the Clifs, but those who built the centre had done a good job making it blend in to the environment.

After a while the rain started to pour, the gift shops were closing and all the tourists started leaving. And as we had a two hour drive ahead to get home we had to say goodbye to the Clifs and the puffins that has this wonderful place as a home.

  1. That’s a beautiful locale! Happy Easter to you and yours. 😊

  2. I’ve heard of the Cliffs but have never visited, so it’s nice to get to see them. Enjoy the rest of your trip, are you heading up North?

    Wow! What a stunning and beautiful place! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I was disappointed by the cliffs. Expensive to park, lots of pointless shops and impossible to get close to the cliff edge. I preferred Mizen Head further south. Glad you are having a good time in Ireland!

      I didn’t visit the shops and I felt I got close enough to the clif edge. But I haven’t seen the Mizen Head. I am enjoying Ireland a lot. Hope you’re having a good easter.

  5. Magnificent scenery! I’d love to see the puffins too 🙂
