Forget scrambling up mountain peaks or trekking into the wilderness — Ireland’s most hair-raising hike is the 8km trail running along the top of the mighty Cliffs of Moher. Soaring 214 meters over the Atlantic Ocean, the coastal cliffs are so dramatic they’ve even been immortalized on screen, with films like The Princess Bride and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince shooting scenes on the windswept cliff tops.

Carved by a river delta an estimated 320 million years ago, the Cliffs of Moher are now a listed UNESCO World Heritage site and a Special Protection Area for Birds (Common Gulls, Chough, Razorbill and Atlantic Puffins are all common sights), making the site one of Ireland’s most visited tourist attractions.

The most popular way to experience the cliffs is by walking or cycling the coastal trail, running from near the village of Doolin to the evocatively named Hags Head (so called as the headland resembles a woman’s head gazing out to sea).
