On top of them there is a nineteenth-century round stone tower O’Briens, which was built as an observation point
The visitor center itself has been designed so that it does not change the beautiful panoramic views – it is embedded in the rock, and the use of renewable energy systems such as heating or geothermal cooling and the use of solar panels and recycling of gray water to minimize interference in the environment.
The construction of the building cost 32 million euros and took 17 years to complete it was then officially opened in 2007
Cliffs can also be admired from the ocean level – all you have to do is reach the picturesque town of Doolin, 8 kilometers away, from where there are organized cruises to the Aran Islands and on the way back the ships reach the cliffs of Moher.
