Featured in modern film and Irish folklore, the cliffs reach 700 ft at the highest point and provide sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and on a clear day islands in Galway Bay. Despite being one of the most visited sites in Ireland, the landscape remains untouched and standing on the cliffs is a bit like going back in time.
