by Eamonn Kelly

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Millions of visitors have enjoyed the richness of the Cliffs of Moher over the centuries. Its wild beauty and majesty, its unsurpassed vistas, its teeming wildlife and dizzying heights beckon to people from across Ireland and across the world. I am delighted that my brother, Matthew, has decided to republish these four guide booklets as a single volume. We hope that the insights and information herein will enrich your visit to one of Ireland’s and the world’s true natural treasures. Eamonn Kelly | Author
In February 2007, the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience opened to the public: An award-winning, eco-friendly underground building that houses restaurants, gift shop, tourist information, a first aid room and an exciting new exhibition, entitled Atlantic Edge. The new facilities include a craftworkers street of six shops, picnic areas and restoration work at O’Brien’s Tower. In addition to the new Visitor Centre, improvements and extension have been made to the cliff edge pathways, steps and the viewing area. A new visitor management programme was also introduced that involves Cliffs of Moher Rangers who offer the public information on the cliffs, guided tours and conservation measures. The work begun in the nineteenth century by Cornelius O’Brien to welcome visitors from near and far to the Cliffs of Moher continues in this state-of-the-art development.
