Heading to the Cliffs of Moher
The Cliffs of Moher on Irelands wild Atlantic way is one of the most popular sites in Ireland. Explored by thousands each year, but with the west of Ireland’s wild nature can be a tough walk for young families or the less abled. Well look no further use this useful tip Guerins Path parking at the Cliffs of Moher.
Finding Guerins Path
After pulling up at the Cliffs of Moher and being told it was 10 euro per person to park, we were reluctant on paying as the weather was not great and with a 2 year old and 8 month old we couldn’t see we would get value for more.
Being the ever optimists we decided to drive on a small bit and take some back roads and see what we could find. It was about 1km past the car park we saw a right turn with the a sign which at the bottom read car park. We turned in and headed up the small road for about another 1km.
It was here we saw the sign for Guerins Path, why not we said and turned in and headed into the fields and after a small drive saw a scattering of cars and a attendant.
We got chatting to the attendant and with the young kids in the back he told us we could bypass the car park and head along Guerins Path to the closet parking spot available to the Cliffs of Moher. “sold’ we said and even better half the price of normal parking.
The map below shows the exact location.
What They Say
Ill interupt the story here to give you a bit of information on Guerins Path.
A family-owned business, Guerin’s Path to Cliff Walk provides a hassle-free alternative for an epic experience. Park your car at Guerin’s farm and enjoy a lovely stroll along Guerin’s Path to the stunning Cliff Walk along the Cliffs of Moher.

It is also an excellent choice for families with young children, pensioners for whom strenuous walking is difficult and those in need of wheelchair accessibility to reach the cliffs in a quick and easy way. Local farmer Martin Guerin and his family welcome you to their farm to enjoy one of the most breathtaking wonders of the world.Courtesy of www.guerinspath.com/
Five meter walk to see the Cliffs of Moher
We got out of the car and straight through a gate and we literally were 5 metres from the perfect view of the Cliffs of Moher. As you can see in this video below.
Guerins Path did the job
For us this find was perfect with the kids who were both under 3 and not have to navigate it with them, but to still see the view was amazing. If this wasn’t a trip with the kids then to do the whole walk would be our preference. This post is more to give people who either like us have children, are less able or short on time.

With 2 parking lots either a 5 minute walk to the Cliffs of Moher or literally 1 metre walk
Yes you arrive half way through at the top but you can walk along still just like you would from the beginning

Looks a fantastic place and nice to highlight the path of least resistance.
Well look at you both! Now you both seem to possessed the luck of the Irish. I can imagine this wild side of Ireland on a sunny day – transporting. Thanks for sharing #flyingbaguette
That is such a great tip! I have never been to the Cliffs of Moher, but have heard a lot about them so a visit is definitely on the cards. I don’t mind hiking, but think that getting a fabulous view like this as starters would be great.
Having visited Slieve League I would now also like to explore the Cliffs of Moher.
What a great tip for an accessible way to see the beautiful Cliffs of Moher. It’s great when you luck into a hidden gem like Guerin’s Path.
The Cliffs of Moher are close to the top of my list, Richard. What a spectacular piece of nature. Guerin’s Path looks like a lucky find. Thanks for sharing.
I was there many many years ago and the pics brought back fond memoirs. In those days there was no fee for parking, and it was less touristy. Good info for those with disabilities and kids. 10 Euros per person is a lot to pay for what is essentially a view of cliffs (albeit beautiful) with little maintenance. Thanks for the info.
This was a great find for your family! I was surprised at the nearness from the car to the view! Can you imagine owning that farm/property?? Wow!
Wow the Cliffs Of Moher look spectacular!
The Cliffs of Moher are just stunning. So jealous. They’re on my bucket list! Great post 🙂
Make sure you make it the views are incredible and such a good experience
What a great tip and I’m glad you had the opportunity to do it with the whole family. I find sometimes it’s worth the long road but sometimes the short road is almost as good.
When there 1 and 3 the easiest option is always right . Still would like to explore more and do the cliff walk
I’m pretty impressed you found this just by driving around. I considered coming here during our first visit but it sounded pretty difficult to find. Great view, though!
It was relatively easy which is never the way. So handy with the kids. I would love to do the full Cliffs walk though and fully appreciate it
What a great and helpful tip! I’d definitely use Guerin’s Path when I go as I’ve always dreamed of seeing the Cliffs of Moher!
You should and its a easy alternative. I still want to do the walk but this was perfect for us with the family
We visited the Cliffs of Moher on our trip to Ireland last year – and really enjoyed it – but paid full price at the official gate so it’s always good to learn about this alternative option. Thanks for this really useful hint. And, of course, your photos of the cliffs are simply stunning!
Thabks so much we hope to get back on a sunnier day and do the full walk. But this tip and find was great to have with the kids in tow
