The Cliffs of Moher are located at the southwestern edge of Ireland in the County Clare. This is the view looking south toward Hag’s Head which rises 390 feet above the Atlantic Ocean. The cliffs take their name from an old fort called Moher that once stood on Hag’s Head, the southernmost point of the cliffs. The cliffs consist mainly of beds of shale and sandstone. There are an estimated 30,000 birds living on the cliffs who watch an estimated one million visitors per year who come to look at their cliffs.
