The magnificent Cliffs of Moher top the list of places to see and things to do in Ireland, and are Ireland's most visited tourist attraction. Soaring 702 feet above the Atlantic coast of county Clare in the West of Ireland, this Irish outdoor elopement location is getting more famous not only as a tourist attraction, but as a unique location for a wedding on a cliff.
The Cliffs of Moher are the crowning jewel of the Irish coastline, providing unrivalled views across the vast Atlantic Ocean whose cool breeze greets you on your wedding day as you stand, hand in hand, 700 feet above the water. You can hold a ceremony in this Irish outdoor elopement location with only you, your spouse, and the officiator, or you can bring along a few friends with you too.
Legally-binding ceremonies at the cliffs must take place on the steps outside O’Brien’s Tower, whilst symbolic (i.e. non-legally binding) marriage blessings can be held anywhere along the 8-kilometer stretch of the rocky wall. When considering a wedding at the Cliffs of Moher, it is important to remember that it is a highly popular tourist attraction that welcomes hundreds of visitors on a daily basis. Whilst it is undoubtedly a beautiful scenic spot to exchange vows, you should not expect complete privacy.
Being one of the most popular tourist spots in the whole country, this Irish outdoor elopement location is usually populated, especially on weekends. Nevertheless, you can always find a spot along the long stretch of the paved pathway where you can have your wedding photos taken far from the crowd. Most of our couples enjoy walking along this path that’s framed with lush greeneries on the sides. But before you head on to this spot in the Cliffs of Moher, have a photo shoot in O’Brien’s Tower first so you can take with you extraordinary images right in front of this unique centuries-old structure.
As for your accommodation and after-ceremony party, you can choose from among the hotels, restaurants, and bars around the area.
