Cliffs Of Moher (9/18)

Known for having inspired Lord of the Rings’ Middle Earth, these seaside cliffs are breathtaking. Visitors can hike along the Cliff Walk, which spans about 14 kilometers. You can also take in the scenic views from several towers along the walk.

Thrill seekers can get dangerously close to the edge for the sake of a “good picture”, or if you’re a bit more cautious about heights, start at the Visitor Centre and head out on the paved path to O’Brien’s Tower (built in 1835). At its maximum height, the cliffs extend over 700 feet from sea level.
