Incredibly simple, stupendous views.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  7 Aug 2019
Heading north, just past the Cliffs of Moher car park you will see a farm gate. There is room to park one car here, at a squeeze. Alternatively you can pay the €8 per person entrance to the Cliffs car park. Cross the gate and proceed up a gravel track for about 100m to the trig pillar. Alternately, you can access it via the official Cliffs track. Keep to the right as you enter the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Centre area and follow the well-trodden trail north, passing O'Brien's Tower. After about 500m the trig pillar will be visible on the right, about 50m away, although you will have to cross a wire fence. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/5084/comment/19760/
