After the bad news that came to us yesterday from Norway, where a Spanish tourist passed away after rushing from the 600 meters high of the Prekestolen, the famous pulpit that attracts millions of tourists every year, today we want to tell you about another of the famous cliffs around the world: the Cliffs of Moher (Cliffs of Moher, in English).
These precipices are the attraction tour Ireland's most visited, with a million people every year. Many tourists have traveled the nooks and crannies you can see in the photographs, either by bike or on foot, on an itinerary of about eight kilometers. In addition, last July a 12-kilometer marked walk was inaugurated.
Area enabled for tourists
The Cliffs of Moher, on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, are approximately 8 km long with heights that can reach 214 meters. As you can imagine, it is an impressive natural landscape, nominated to be part of the Seven New Wonders of Nature. In addition, it serves as habitat to many species of birds.
It is an area fully enabled for the visit of all kinds of tourists. The most visited point, from where you get the best known view of these cliffs, is the so-called Hag’s Head, where the height is 120 meters.
Just as it happened in the Norwegian fjords, where the Spanish tourist died, on the cliffs of Moher there are roads where there are signs that warn of a clear danger. Still, the path is clearly marked. This means that, from these points, you are clearly under your responsibility.
In this place long ago wind, especially next to the O’Brien Tower, so it is advisable to wear a hood or a hat.
