Make your way to Doolin's pier about 30 minutes prior to departure and board the boat for the 20-minute journey to the Cliffs of Moher. As you sail, listen to recorded audio commentary on the history and geology of the cliffs, created over years of relentless pounding by the waves of the wild Atlantic Ocean.

As the boat approaches the UNESCO-listed cliffs, get your camera ready for views of the 800-foot (200-meter) rock shelves. An Bhreannan Mor, the largest sea stack, is best appreciated from a boat. Look out for puffins and thousands of other sea birds that nest on the rocky shelves.

After about 20 minutes of cruising past the cliffs' seascape, return to Doolin pier.

A boat tour along the famous Cliffs of Moher allows visitors cliffside views that are much more dramatic than from the land. Set sail along the Atlantic coast from Doolin, keeping an eye out for the resident puffins and snapping epic photo ops of the cliffs, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Book your cruise ahead of time to avoid disappointment over sold-out sailings.

  • Best possible views of the Cliffs of Moher from a boat
  • Audio commentary explains the geology and history of the rock formations
  • Dramatic photo ops of the cliffs and the nesting seabird colonies
  • One-hour cruise time leaves plenty of time to visit the cliffs from land

It was grey, overcast day but that didn't matter as the boat takes you right up to the cliffs. The top of the cliffs were covered in low cloud but it makes for a more dramatic scene. The ocean was choppy with a decent swell...More

There is a large parking lot at Doolin Pier right by the ferry launch. It's a pay and display lot.
