Cliffs of Moher manager destroys visitor who calls attraction ‘shameful’ after bad experience
The manager of the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Center has brilliantly silenced a recent review calling Ireland’s favorite attraction ‘shameful’.
After a visit to the beautiful attraction in December, a domestic tourist lambasted the obstruction of the view by a wall and the €10 fee to visit the centre.
They left a one-star review and called their visit “shameful” – a stark contrast to the more than 10,000 visitors who gave it a full five-goer rating.
And out of almost 14,000 reviews in total, only 157 have a star, which speaks to the popularity of the spot.

But the Cliffs of Moher staff have been kind enough to respond to the reviews, offering a brilliant response to any visitor complaints.
The visitor center manager applauded on Tripadvisor saying: “The Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience is a site developed for the safe viewing of the Cliffs of Moher. The Liscannor flags are part of that safety. Cliffs of Moher are a natural environmental site and as such are a danger zone if visitors are allowed uncontrolled access to the edge of the cliff. EU and natural habitats must therefore also be protected.
“The Coastal Walk, which is a high difficulty level 5 walk, connects the villages of Liscannor and Doolin and runs through the Cliffs of Moher visitor experience whilst being run separately. While new walls, flagstones and footpaths have been constructed along the 1 mile North and South Visitor Experience Zone, these are part of safety repair work being carried out by Clare County Council to improve safety in the area and again to protect habitats.Due to the possibility of landslides and rockfalls in the area, uncontrolled access has been a hazard to walkers.The improvements have made the site much safer for all.
“The entry ticket grants access to all site facilities, including secure viewing platforms, visitor center, outlets, catering, restrooms, exhibit, Wifi and In addition, we have a dedicated team on site to offer assistance to all our visitors such as information, guided tours, first aid and mobility assistance, while maintaining the site which includes ongoing repairs, waste management and environmental protection.
“The site also supports the local economy and provides around 170 jobs during peak season. Our best rates are available online where we offer discounted rates for visitors who choose to visit earlier in the morning or later in the evening, in outside of our peak hours.
“We hope this clarifies the need for cliff edge access control, why we charge admission to the site and what it covers.”
