The Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience is housed at the centre of the underground building where a huge domed cave contains interesting images, exhibits, displays and interactive experiences. You can just park the car and take a short stroll to the main part of the cliffs and the visitors centre. If you really want to make a day of it, you can do the entire cliff walk. This an opportunity to experience the wild beauty of the coastal countryside, will take approx. 3 hours. The route along a paved path is an easy walk, always with the sound of the ocean in your ears! Bring a camera and plenty of water. And PLEASE obey the signs. You can also get a guided walk by local farmer and walking enthusiast: Pat Sweeney (starting and ending in Fisherstreet, Doolin).
