March 25, 2014 (FPRC) -- Management at the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience in County Clare have announced a 550,000 euro plan to upgrade the existing public car park, provide additional coach parking, and upgrade the Centre's exhibition.

Contracts have already been awarded for the coach parking and exhibition upgrades with works due to commence shortly, while a planning application has been submitted in respect of the proposed car park improvements.

Mayor of Clare Cllr. Joe Arkins welcomed the announcement, adding: "The Wild Atlantic Way presents significant opportunities for tourism development right along the western seaboard of Ireland with Clare prominently featured as part of the new touring route that stretches from Donegal to West Cork. The proposed upgrade works at the Cliffs of Moher will complement what is already a high quality visitor attraction and will enable management at the Cliffs to build on the impressive visitor number increases experienced during the past 3 years."

Visitor numbers at the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience in County Clare were up 10% during 2013. 960,134 people visited the world famous tourist attraction last year compared to 873,988 during the previous year. It is the third successive increase in visitor numbers to the Cliffs of Moher with year-on-year increases of 12% and 8% being achieved during 2011 and 2012 respectively.

Commenting on the proposed works, Cliffs Director Katherine Webster said: "The upgrades to the coach park and car park will provide an improved experience for our group and car based customers with increased capacity and a better layout including e-car charging points, additional disabled parking and improved pedestrian flow. The new exhibition content will bring fresh exciting new experiences and greater visitor interactivity to the Cliffs Exhibition. The upgrade is being provided by Dublin based, Rockbrook Engineering, and we’re delighted with how their proposals will bring some of the outdoor experience of the Cliffs inside into the dome area."

The Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience is one of three “Signature Discovery Points” in County Clare along the route of the Wild Atlantic Way, the others being the Bridges of Ross and Loop Head Lighthouse.
