Beautiful views. We went to the top (in each direction). We did not go on the private land to the south, but we will when we go back. We climbed the watchtower as well. Just like all the sites in Ireland, there is a lot of climbing and walking involved, so be prepared!
We traveled on our own and went early in the morning to avoid the majority of the tour buses. Several people recommended touring in the evening to catch the sunset, but that would be almost 9:30 pm, so you would need to be staying fairly close.

People were super friendly and very friendly

Beautiful scenery and well maintained trails. Paved walkways up to observation tower were nice and allow easy access for those with difficulty navigating stairs.
While we were there a couple we had never met became engaged while overlooking the cliffs.

On a recent trip around Ireland, we stopped to experience the Cliffs, a very touristy stop. There are a few shops and paved pathways to take in the majestic cliffs. For those that can’t make the walks, they do offer a cart to take you to the top and back. We were fortunate to have a beautiful day to experience the beauty the Cliffs have to offer. I definitely recommend stopping here if you have time.

I arrived at the Cliffs of Moher with such excitement! We had a few individuals within out group that had some sort of mobility issue throughout our two week tour, however we immediately were made aware that would not be a problem at all. Each individual was placed on a golfcart and transported to the top of the viewing area! The driver was friendly and wiling to make sure we were provided transportation back down if needed and pointed the way to make contact if needed! Wow, I was completely in aw of the site before me! I've travel a bit over the years, however by far, this was the most breathtaking view I have ever seen!! I truly wanted to put the Cliffs in my pocket and bring them home with me! What a view, the weather was perfect, never did I think I would lose my breath, absolutely gorgeous!! Upon leaving we were all able to walk down the hill, visit the gift shops, have lunch and ultimately leave with huge smiles on our faces!

The cliffs, even on a slightly overcast and windy day, were magnificent.
The walk along cliffs to the castle gave us a view like from a movie.
We we got back to the restaurant it was the spot where everyone seemed to be, line was long and disorganized but food was tasty. Shops were enough without forgetting that nature made this beautiful site.

Wanted to walk the cliffs of moher back to Doolin. Got the bus specially for this. Got to the car park only to be told by a very unhelpful “guard” that we would have to pay the entry fee to the visitors centre even just to do the walk. We had been accompanied in the bus by some people who we think were German and they were treated in exactly the same manner
Had already asked for help in the 2 visitors centres in Doolin and neither mentioned this fact.
The fee in question was 12 euros which we refused to pay.
This is a naturally occurring phenomenon and should be free just to go and view. Money should be paid for the visitors centre if that is what you want to visit. At the very least there should be a reduced fee of say 2 Euros just for hikers.
The overall attitude of the guard was very very unhelpful
We walked down the road for 1 mile and joined the cliff path at no cost
Be warned!!

If you have limited mobility do not let that stop you going to this spectacular attraction. There is a golf buggy style transport available, specific parking and wheelchairs available. All of these provided the most accessible experience for one that cannot walk very far. The staff were very friendly and provided great service.
The views are amazing and the cliffs are really a lovely site.
There is a shop, visitor centre and small cafe on site.

The Cliffs are beautiful but if you’re staying in Dublin, it is a VERY long day trip to take. The tour company we used (Finn McCool) included Galway and the the Kilmacduagh as stops along the way and neither of those stops were worth it. So if you can find a tour that has more interesting stops included, it would’ve been better- in hindsight, I would’ve just rented a car.

We took the tour that picks up in Dublin, heads to the Cliffs, and then returns to the city. The tour was fantastic, our guide Dave was very funny and down-to-earth. He was incredibly knowledgeable not just about the tour destinations, but also when it came to recommending places to go/see in Dublin and other parts of the country. I really appreciated that he did not shy away from some of the darker parts of Ireland's past. He told stories about the famine and subsequent mass emigration away from the country, and also about past violence in the country due to religious tensions. The trip was absolutely beautiful and eye-opening in so many ways. Cannot recommend it enough.

Unfortunately this is now a tourist trap. €12 per adult. Rip off charge. Not much to justify this price in the centre, video was not working. Shame you feel you’ve been fleeced, views spectacular you might be better off viewing from the ferry. Pity
