Cliffs of Moher New Visitor Experience Accessibility Information

Disabled Parking

Disabled parking bays for disabled parking permit holders are available beside the visitor centre building on the cliffs side of the road. Drivers should enter by the coach entrance and press the intercom button at the barrier. When this is answered please advise that you wish to use the disabled parking bays.

Additional overflow disabled parking bays are available in the carpark on the opposite side of the road at the point in the carpark nearest to the pedestrian crossing. However, visitors should note that the gravel surface and terrain may make it difficult for wheelchair users and where possible the nearer disabled parking bays should be used.

Building & Site Accessibility

The new visitor center building has been designed to meet and exceed current building regulations and guidelines embracing the general philosophy of universal access. Within the Atlantic Edge exhibition all visitors will use the ramp which provides access to the exhibits, which have been designed to appeal to all of the senses.

Included among the measures taken within the building are Induction loops at the main desk, help desk and the Admission kiosks as well as in the theatre. Staggered counter heights have been introduced at reception areas. Generously sized accessible toilets/baby changing facilities are provided on all floor levels.

While the natural terrain makes it difficult to provide full independent access to all areas outdoors, specifically elevated views at the Hags Head side and O’Brien’s Tower and the new cliffs edge works have sought to provide a reasonable level of access to the outdoor experience. Access is readily available from both the ground and first floor levels of the building as well as from the main concourse to the picnic area and cliff edge. Coin operated telescopes, including an accessible reduced height version, on the viewing areas provide a commentary in a variety of languages.

As above the access to more elevated views at the Hags Head side and O’Briens Tower is impinged by the incline of the natural terrain. A hard surfaced wheeled access path is provided to these areas but the path has sections where gradients imposed by the natural gradient of the terrain exceed the levels required for wheelchair access. Visitors may wish to use these paths with assistance at their own risk.

Additional information

The centre has a golf buggy for operational use and this may be available to help bring visitors who need assistance to the cliff edge area. Please enquire at the main Reception in the visitor centre building to see if this is available. As we have only one golf buggy please accept our apologies in advance if it is already in use.

A number of manually operated wheelchairs are available for visitors to borrow from the visitor centre building and from the carpark cabin.

Staff will receive disability awareness training and will be available for assistance in making your visit to the Cliffs of Moher as enjoyable as possible.
