Cliffs of Moher - Sea Birds

The cliffs have been designated as a Special Area of Conservation by the EU and they are home to about 30,000 sea birds.

The most famous visitors to the cliffs are the Atlantic Puffins. This small comical bird with its black and white evening suit and colourful bill is sometimes called the sea parrot.

The main colony can be seen at Goat Island, close to O’Brien’s Tower just under the first viewing point. There are smaller colonies on the grassy summits to the north and south of this area.

The area is also internationally important for breeding Razorbills. Other species include Fulmar, Gannets, Guillemots and Kittiwakes.

For a fascinating insight on the seabirds and nature at the Cliffs of Moher, we highly recommend following Murfs Wildlife blog

Of course, we have a strong connection with the Puffins at the Cliffs of Moher, as it was the birthplace of our very own Paddy the Puffin ... To learn more about Paddy, visit his blog!

"My husband and I hosted our wedding in Ireland in September of 2008. We came over from the States, as did 63 members of our family and friends, and our entire group went on one of your ship tours of the Cliffs. The experience was the talk of the trip! Everyone had a wonderful time - the cruise was not only a great learning experience but a fabulous way to really appreciate the beauty of the Cliffs of Moher and the West coast of Ireland."
