The main attraction of Ireland Cliffs of Moher
Arriving in Ireland, first of all, every tourist wants to see the famous Cliffs of Moher, which are located on the coast of County Clare. The height of these rocks ranges from 120 meters to 214 meters and every year, there are approximately more than one million tourists. Nobody wants to miss this beauty and amazing landscape by his gaze.
The name of the cliffs was because they had built a fortress, whose name, as you may have guessed «Moher». Unfortunately, the fortress itself has not survived to the present day, since it was destroyed in 1808. But in 1835, there was built O’Brien’s Tower, which serves as a lookout tower.
The tower can be visited every day, to go into it, you need to pay a certain amount, but it is not too great, especially to see the beauty that opens before us. That is, there can not see the entire coast of roofing, but the entire area completely. What’s interesting is that one of these cliffs was undeveloped viewing platform and people come here to enjoy the view on the nature and on the Aran Islands, which are also visible from there.
Scientists maintain that these cliffs more than 8,000 years. They consist of materials such as black slate and sandstone. On the cliffs can be seen about 30 thousand birds of different species. In addition, you can see birds such as Atlantic puffins, gulls, hawks, loons, etc.
In addition, the authorities have built Environmental Center, in 2007, on the hill. Login per cent is EUR 6 for adults, and children under 16 free. To see the cliffs from the bottom, you can order a boat trip where you can still see so much beauty, and so close. It is an extraordinary place where probably every one of us wants to visit at least once in their lives. So why not live only once on this earth.
