Walking in Ireland is always a pleasure, particularly in County Clare, where you will find some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. The Doolin Cliff Walk takes in more than 10 miles of coastline with stunning views of the Aran Islands, Connemara and even the mountains of Kerry on a clear day.
Doolin and the Cliffs of Moher, Ireland’s most dramatic natural landmark, are easily accessible from our three luxurious Lisdoonvarna hotels, and we will be delighted to help you to organise your itinerary so that you can make the most of your visit to this wonderful area. Call us today to book your stay at The Imperial Hotel, Lisdoonvarna, The Hydro Hotel, Lisdoonvarna or The King Thomond Lisdoonvarna.
Highlights Of The Doolin To Cliffs of Moher Walk
- You’ll experience the dramatic contrasts of the landscape when you climb from sea level at Doolin to O’Brien’s Tower, the highest point of which is 750 feet (230 meters). Returning to sea level as you reach Hags Head, this route offers a challenge which requires a good level of fitness, and you are advised to wear appropriate footwear and waterproof clothing in case of changeable weather.
- You can really make the most of your walk by joining with an expert. Pat Sweeney, from Doolin, offers a guided walk of the Cliffs every morning in high season, and you can find him outside O’Connor’s Pub at 10am.
- Don’t miss the stunning flora and fauna along the route, including orchids in the summer months and primroses in the spring.
- You may be lucky enough to see Puffins as you walk, as there are colonies nesting in burrows on the grassy banks of the cliffs. These cliffs are a popular breeding ground for Razorbills, Guillemots and Fulmars, and Kestrels and Peregrine falcons are frequently seen. The rare Chough is the most sought after bird in the area, however, and you’ll be the envy of your friends if you spot this black bird with red legs and a red curved beak
- If you’re not able to complete the whole walk on foot, you can take advantage of the hop on, hop off shuttle bus service that runs along the route, with stops at Doolin, the Cliffs of Moher Centre and the Hags Head Area.
