ONE OF IRELAND’S best-known tourist attractions is getting something of a makeover.

The Cliffs of Moher are getting a €550,000 upgrade which will see a bigger public car park and an updated exhibition at the visitor experience centre at the Clare cliffs. The work is due to begin shortly.

Almost one million people visited the cliffs last year, with higher numbers expected for this year: the cliffs are one of the key stopping points along the newly-launched Wild Atlantic Way along Ireland’s west coast.

The director of the cliffs, Katherine Webster, said the new exhibition will bring “exciting new experiences and greater visitor interactivity”.

The Cliffs of Moher were the third-most popular fee-charging tourist attractions in Ireland last year, behind Dublin Zoo and the Guinness Storehouse. The other two attractions in the top 5 were the National Aquatic Centre and the Book of Kells.
