A free interactive mobile app is now available for those planning a trip to Ireland’s famous Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience in County Clare.
The newly launched Cliffs of Moher app contains an audio-guided tour, with audio tracks from the locals, information on all aspects of the majestic cliffs, maps, and plenty of information to make a trip to the site more memorable.
With free Wi-Fi available throughout the main visitor centre building and viewing platforms, visitors will be able to access a range of information about the Cliffs of Moher via their smartphone.
The app’s 13 audio tracks narrated by radio presenter Conor Tallon feature contributions from people with an intrinsic knowledge of the rich history, geology, flora and fauna of Ireland’s most visited natural attraction. There are also tips on planning your visit, the best time to arrive, as well as other places and things to explore in County Clare.
With promotional offers and notices of upcoming events, the app aims to educate, enthral, entertain and ensure that you get the most from a trip to the brightest jewel of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way.
The most stunning and most famous sea cliffs in Ireland were awarded UNESCO Global Geopark status in 2011. They stretch for 8km (5 miles) and reach 214m (702 feet) at their highest point north of the much-photographed O’Brien’s Tower, where there are unrivalled views of the Atlantic Ocean.

The natural beauty of the cliffs has inspired artists, musicians, and poets for generations, as well as absorbing scientists and geologists, all drawn to the unique landscape in which the cliffs sit.
Outside, you can walk the safe, paved pathways on top of the cliffs and enjoy the spectacular vistas over the Atlantic Ocean and the Aran Islands. The more adventurous might embrace the 20km Cliffs of Moher Coastal Walk, which connects the lively towns of Liscannor and Doolin, via the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Centre.
The Cliffs of Moher Visitor Centre itself is sculpted into the landscape and features informative and entertaining permanent exhibits in its extensive gallery space and auditorium.
This huge, domed cave contains images, exhibits and displays which are organised into four principal themed areas – cliffs, ocean, rock, nature and man – that each explore the different elements of the mighty cliffs. An on-site theatre offers an exhilarating virtual-reality cliff-face adventure, while two cafes, a gift store and a craft and retail street offer the chance to take home a unique memento of your trip.
The surrounding County Clare landscape is also a place of great beauty, with the vast, moon-like area of The Burren, much loved for its scenery, ancient monuments, an array of eco-tourism options, music traditions, outdoor adventure and superb local food, among its many charms.
