We are excited to announce that we have a new yacht trip available for our 2016 season. The Cliffs of Moher trip will be departing every Tuesday from Rossaveal Harbour in Co. Galway. This is a 6 hour day sail offering spectacular views of the infamous Cliffs of Moher and many other interesting landmarks.
Cliffs of Moher
The Cliffs of Moher are located at the southwestern edge of the Burren region in County Clare, Ireland. They rise above the Atlantic Ocean at Hag’s Head, and reach their maximum height of just north of O’Brien’s Tower, eight kilometres to the north. The cliffs rank amongst the top visited tourist sites in Ireland, and currently receive more than a million visitors a year.
The cliffs have appeared in several films, including The Princess Bride (1987) (as the filming location for “The Cliffs of Insanity”), Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009), and Leap Year (2010). The cliffs are mentioned in the Martin Scorsese film Bringing Out the Dead (1999), and are noted in the 2008 documentary Waveriders as the location of a large surfing wave known as “Aileens”.
Our Cliffs of Moher trips will run from April 2016 to October 2016 and we will start taking bookings in January 2016.
