Soaring over 700 feet up and over the Atlantic Ocean, it is no wonder why the Cliffs of Moher are the most toured attraction in all of Ireland. Imposing green cliffs, verdant from the coastal mist are alive in the most ancient of ways as the blue waters of the Atlantic crash on the rocks below. The wind whipping through your hair, surrounded by 360 degrees of absolute natural beauty makes for a thrilling location for your wedding day. Some couples brave the cliffs, climbing down to explore some of the caves below for pictures. A spirited traditional Irish blessing ceremony with hand-fasting and other elements make for the perfect Irish wedding here. After, warm up at a local bar in the fishing village of Doolin just ten minutes away, and indulge on hearty traditional Irish food and music. Doolin is the heart of Irish music and poetry, and every pub and restaurant is full of local and visiting artists. This is the quintessential Irish experience.
The Cliffs are rewarding for the efforts: the view is unparalleled, the atmosphere is thrilling. This is a wonderful location to explore for the adventurous couple. Waterlily Weddings will plan every detail with you, from the music accompanying your gorgeous ceremony to the authentic Irish celebration afterwards and everything in between. All you will need to worry about is getting the right pair of shoes to navigate the area!
