Cliffs of Moher, formed 320 million years ago

If you are visiting Co Clare in Ireland, just south of the Burren on the western seaboard are the Cliffs of Moher. Formed some 320 million years ago, these dramatic cliffs rise straight up from the Atlantic to heights of 700ft (214m) and are home to a variety of cliff nesting birds. The interpretive center presents the evolution of this natural spectacle and the wildlife that live there in easy to understand formats that both adults and children alike can enjoy.


About Author

John Ironside FRGS
Photographer, Travel Writer, Author

Having spent many years as a professional photographer, I have been privileged to be witness to so many wonderful happenings, meeting so many amazing people all over the world and enjoying their cultures, hospitality and experiences.

Through my travel business, I traveled extensively into Africa, South America, Caribbean and Europe bringing clients into these regions so they could experience the cultures and traditions of the communities, understand better the environment, the value of conservation and the caring of nature through adventure and environmental travel.

Through my photography and travel writing I convey these experiences to others so that they too can enjoy and understand the moments that travel brings with it.

Please feel free to pass on my blog to others that may gain from them.
Thank you.
