    Spectacular.
    Fabulous day to see the Cliffs. It was crowded as expected. The Visitor Center is well done and only takes about 20 minutes to go through. The Cliffs are spectacular. O'Brien's Tower was an interesting climb but it was incredibly crowded and there are no limits of visitors going to the top. They really do need to monitor and control the number of visitors as it was so crowded at the top that it took away from the experience.

    Cliffs Trinkets, Eats & History
    This is nice! You don’t really expect such a nice, well thought out, and entertaining visitor center. It is set up with background and historical information about the Cliffs of Moher, but with an expansive gift shop, and an amazing eatery – that actually feeds you above average fare… not common at tourist traps (no I didn’t mean it in a bad way). The center was entertaining, clean, accommodating and convenient. Great restrooms, plenty of walking area, spacious and conducive to you wanting to be there! By the way, the gift shop really has some good stuff! Visit after your hike and touring, as you’ll appreciate even more… and they’re great people working there. Go hiontach!

    Windy beauty
    The cliffs are a must see when you're in western Ireland, just mind the weather. We were there on a day they call "a bit atmospheric." The wind was something serious to deal with, but it was worth it. The center itself is nice, with some good displays.

    Not to be missed
    Booked online for a discount on price, and not quite sure what to expect. However, it was a great way to spend a few wind-blown hours! I imagine it would be very busy in the summer but yesterday there were only a handful of people. Visitor centre lovely, and cFe well worth a visit. Make sure you climb the towere for even more spectacular views.

    Enjoy the walk but brace yourself for the visitor centre
    The walk at the Cliffs of Moher was very nice, but the visitor centre was a dark, chaotic, claustrophobic mess. Somehow everyone made it work and got what they needed, but I was glad to escape back into the open air. The geology exhibits are worth a look, but you can expect queues for toilets and food.

12 euro PER adult to park the car, my advice is park somewhere else and walk along the cliffs. Actually just a scam even if it was 12 euro per car.

First - the cliffs are totally spectacular - breathtaking. The visitor centre is near the highest point on the cliff. It’s really busy, a bit tacky, loads of coaches, busy car park, bored staff - naff. From the top of the cliffs all you can really see is the sea. My advice - go to Doolin - nice wee village up the coast - and walk the coastal path back towards to the cliffs OR if you really want to go to the visitor centre, walk straight past the tower and keep going. You drop down quite quickly & get a great view.

This place informs the visitors about the nature at the place and the uniqueness of the sea animals and plants living at the cliffs. There is a small cinema inside with a projection of video with this information, and also some posters with some additional information written in text.
The place has also a souvenir shop, but since it wasn't open that long even during summer days, I haven't managed to check it out or buy anything.

The gift shop was cute but packed and not very well organized. The visitors center had a really cute little information center complete w/a show.
