Cliffs of Moher: A View from the Top with Tonya and Ian Fitzpatrick

Aired on February 1, 2019

One of our favorite spots offering an extraordinary view is located on the west coast of Ireland—the Cliffs of Moher. These almost vertical cliffs drop sheer into the heaving Atlantic Ocean, creating a haven for seabirds. From the top, you can see the Aran Islands, Galway Bay, the Twelve Pins, and the Maum Turk Mountains to the north in Connemara, as well as Loop Head to the south. The breathtaking panorama from the Cliffs of Moher never gets tiresome.

The Cliffs of Moher are home to a vast number of nesting seabirds, including the Atlantic Puffin, Razorbill, Chough, and Common Gull. Designated as a Refuge for Fauna since 1988 and a Special Protection Area for Birds (SPA) under the EU Birds Directive since 1989, this area is a vital sanctuary for wildlife.
