Tonya and Ian on The Cliffs of Moher in Ireland

Aired on February 1, 2019

This is our personal take on one of our favorite attractions.  The Cliffs of Moher offers an extraordinary view can be found on the west coast of Ireland.

From atop the vertical drop of the cliffs one can see the heaving Atlantic ocean below and across the water to the Aran Islands, Galway Bay, the Twelve Pins and the Maum Turk Mountains to the north in Connemara and Loop Head to the South.

The Cliffs of Moher is home to a hugh number of nesting seabirds. These include the Atlantic Puffin, Razorbuill, Chough and Common Gull. The area is designated as a Refuge for Fauna since 1988 and as a Special Protection Area for Birds (SPA) under the EU Birds Directive in 1989.
