Doolin, County Clare, Ireland
The Cliffs of Moher are Ireland’s most visited natural attraction with over 1.5 million tourists visiting each year. Located on the Wild Atlantic Way just south of Doolin in County Clare, Ireland. They ascend to over 200 meters and stretching south for 8km to Hags Head.
In the backdrop can be seen “O’Brien’s Tower” which was built in 1835 by Cornelius O’Brien, a descendant of Brian Boru, the High King Of Ireland. Cornelius was the local landowner and was a man ahead of his time, believing that the development of tourism would benefit the local economy & bring the people out of poverty.
I captured this angle overlooking the cliffs, tower & tourists to show a greater perspective on the actual height of this monumental cliffscape. The Cliffs of Moher are a true natural wonder of the world and we are so proud to have them here in Ireland, well worth a visit any time of day or year
