"Bit of a cheat, really.........................." Doolin by leics

Doolin Travel Guide: 118 reviews and 231 photos

........as I didn't actually stop in Doolin (which looks very pretty but, I suspect, is packed out with tourists in the season). I just wanted to put my photos of the Cliffs of Moher somewhere, and Doolin was the nearest place on VT's list.

They're building an 'interpretation centre' at the cliffs, so the place is a bit of a building site at the moment (complete with cranes). The centre will be hidden underground, which is good, and may be a worthwile experience (judgement reserved for now).

Going by the number of people and coaches visiting on a Monday morning in February, and the buskers already in situ on the path to the cliffs, I suspect this place is a nightmare in the season. So go early, or go late, but try not to miss the cliffs because they really are stunning.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Wild and wonderful landscape
  • Cons:Too popular with visitors, expect crowds in season...
  • In a nutshell:For the Cliffs of Moher
