What you'll do
This is a easy crawl from point to point around the cliffs of moher area, both in the car and on foot. The average tourist visits the visitor centre there without ever understanding the fascinating history of the place. From the great irish famine and mass emmigration of a million irish to America (and other shores) to the rule of Mr. Cornelius O Brien , local landlord turned patron of the downtrodden, this place is immersed in a history with many iconic buildings still in place, albeit, some in ruins. On our unique experience I will drive you to the holywell and a crypt which is the final resting place of the patron that Mr O Brien emerged to be, take you up along the edge of the spectacular cliffs of moher for a short walk and talk you through the significance of the old military towers, castles and stone cottages in ruins. We will be driving along tiny little roads and you can relax and enjoy the scenery. We can jump out for a stroll at various points, the weather usually dictates that here in Ireland !! We will finish off our experience with some hot tea/coffee. This is a way to experience the Cliffs of Moher like nothing else available. It may have particular appeal to Americans with Irish ancestry who are interested in where their family came from and what their lives were like.
Hi, my name is Roisin Kelly (BA media studies & event management) and I am privileged to live beneath the shadow of the iconic Cliffs of Moher. Myself and my best buddy Moby (the dog) are outdoor junkies and spend our time rambling around the cliffs, around the ocean beside our house and moby especially loves all the green fields around us. I am deeply interested in local history, specifically the history of the Cliffs of Moher. I've spent the last 13 years studying them in some shape or form. We also love hiking and run another airbnb hiking experience, the cliffs of moher 10km which takes hikers away from the tourist hubs along quieter tracks on the cliffs. We love nature and the great outdoors, sharing our favourite spots with guests is our favourite thing to do.
Access onto the cliffs of moher tracks will be paid for you.
I will drive you about in my little jeep. I can take 4 people at a time and our little dog Moby.
Wetpants to keep you dry even on rough rainy days so we can keep on hiking. Also binoculars for supreme viewing for each…

Where you'll be
We will visit the holywell where the memorial tower and the crypt of O' Brien lay still. O' Brien it could be argued was a type of Oscar Schlinder to the local Irish here in a time of dire poverty. A large portion of this experience is dedicated to the memory of his life and achievements. A story of hope and human endeavour. The second element of the experience is a walk up onto the edge of the cliffs themselves, a staggering 700ft above sea.

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
Sometimes we are driving, sometimes we are walking. It depends on the weather and what the group want themselves. I am happy doing both. My intention is to give you a unique and intimate insight into this area which happens to incorporate one of Irelands greatest treasures, the cliffs of moher.
