Cliffs of Moher - Boat or land

Do others recommend seeing Cliffs of Moher by boat or from land? If boat, where did you book?

Many thanks!

I've only seen them from on top (land) and was terribly disappointed... It wasn't helped by all the crowds either. Another time I would definitely do the boat trip. At least them you will get a feel for the size of teh cliffs.

I would go with the boat. Both are "crowded" but there are no tour buses on the boats, which I personally hate - probably because at 73, I may be there all too soon. The boat has a small chance of being cancelled by weather, in which case you can go by land. I booked with Doolin Ferry Co. which is possibly the same folks. You can combine the Cliffs with one of the Aran Islands if that was also in your plan.

Definitely two different perspectives. I’ve only seen the cliffs from the top (twice) and it wasn’t crowded at all either time. There is a beautiful walk you can do just to the north of the cliffs if you have time.
