What to Pack for the Cliffs of Moher
Whether you’re taking a coastal stroll or enjoying the views, the Cliffs of Moher are a star attraction of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. To make your trip as stress-free as possible, come prepared—here’s a list of a few things you should bring.
Comfortable shoes: Sturdy shoes with a good grip are recommended for the uneven and sometimes slippery cliffside trails.
**Sun protection:**Sunblock and a hat are essential if visiting in the summer months.
**Warm clothing and a raincoat:**Be sure to pack these items (not an umbrella—it’s too windy!) even on a warm day, as the weather can change rapidly thanks to the high Atlantic winds.
**Drinking water and snacks:**Day tours from Dublin can last between 10 and 15 hours, so pack enough water and snacks for the long journey.
**Lunch:**If you’re spending the day at the Cliffs of Moher, bring a picnic lunch—just remember to throw out your garbage. Meals are also available for purchase at the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience.
**Camera:**On a clear day, the views stretch as far as the Twelve Pins mountains in Connemara, the Dingle Peninsula, and the Blasket Islands in Kerry. You’ll want to capture the views.
