The Doolin Cliff Walk Experience
To walk with the creator of the Cliffs of Moher Trail
The cliff walk begins each morning at 10am in Fisherstreet, Doolin outside The Coffee Dock at Doolin Inn. From there we start along the road towards Doonagore Castle. After approximately 1/2km
you will leave the road and begin the walking trail along the Cliffs of Moher. You will see the gradual rise of the cliffs in the distance ahead, Doonagore Castle to your left on a raised setting
overlooking the bay and, depending on the weather, the waves of the Atlantic crashing below at the base of the cliffs.
The walk is along a gravel path with flagstone steps cut out of the terrain to cross the drains and streams and on the steeper inclines. The trail is not a difficult walk, it requires a basic level of fitness
and a good head for heights.
Along your way you will cross the lands of many local farmers, where Pat will tell of how these lands have been farmed through the generations, each handed down from father to son and to grandson.
Learn the history of the area and about the rural lifestyle enjoyed by the local people of Doolin with the amazing views of lush green grass, rocky cliffs and varying shades of sea and
You will walk along until you reach the highest point of the Cliffs of Moher standing 214m (702 feet) above sea level, where views of the Dingle Peninsula and Loop Head in the South, the Aran Islands
to the West with the Twelve Pins and mountains of Connemara to the North can be seen on a clear day. O'Briens Tower is near the highest point and serves as an excellent viewing platform, as has
been the case for hundreds of years.
The walk ends at Guerins Path at approximitely 2pm. This is near the highest point along the cliffs where a bus or taxi awaits to bring you back to the start point of the walk.
