It’s hoped a multi-million euro investment in the Cliffs of Moher will result in widespread benefits for the North Clare economy.
Clare County Council is to spend 16.5 million euro on works including an upgrade to the visitor centre, a pedestrian tunnel, parking and traffic management and Cliff Walk improvements.
The current visitor centre was designed to accommodate up to 800,000 visitors annually and last year, a record 1.6 million paid to enter the country’s most popular natural tourist attraction.
The works form part of the Cliffs 2040 architectural masterplan, for future development on site for the next two years.
Cliffs of Moher Board Member, Fianna Fáil Councillor Shane Talty has been telling Clare FM’s Fiona Cahill that he believes that it’s the best use of the funding.
