Pocket Guide To The Cliffs Of Moher
Rising to a height of over 200m and stretching from O’Brien’s Tower to Cancregga Point the Cliffs of Moher are one of Europe’s most spectacular coastal features. Our last copies of this 1987 Pocket Guide
Layer upon layer of rock laid down 300m years ago provide a precarious nesting site for the tens of thousands of seabirds which rear their young at the cliffs, while along the cliff top arctic alpine plants nestle in crevices beside temperate species.
Man has made his mark too, in the form of towers, quarries and well-worn paths, but always his impact has been dwarfed by the scale and grandeur of the cliffs.
This guide will introduce readers to the history and wildlife of this exciting area, as well as providing much useful information on amenities, travel and walks.
