A drone footage video has captured the stunning beauty of the Cliffs of Moher and really shows why the cliffs are one of the most visited sites in Ireland.
The video was taken by videographer Wiebe de Jager and takes in the magnificent scenery including the land, sea, sky and the rugged cliffs.
It was taken on a beautiful day which makes it even more stunning with the clear blue sky and the beaming sun lighting up the cliffs and the greenery below.
Landmarks such as O’Brien’s Tower, the highest viewing point on the cliffs, feature heavily in the video.
It also shows a number of tourists walking the paths along the cliffs, and just how close to the edge those paths are!
The Atlantic Ocean is glistening blue in the bird’s eye view, although it is surprisingly tranquil. Due to the wonderful weather the waves lap against the cliffs rather than crash into them.
When you see footage like this you can understand why the Cliffs of Moher were voted the ‘best cliff view in the world’ – ahead of iconic sights such as England’s White Cliffs of Dover.
Take a look at the video below.
