L&M Keating Appointed by Clare County Council to Improve Visitor Facilities at Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience
L&M Keating have been appointed by Clare County Council to improve visitor facilities at the world-renowned Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience. The €1.3M project will provide a new reception centre and upgraded coach parking and will open in early June 2018. The attraction is expected to welcome over 1.5M visitors in 2018.
Pictured at the contract signing for the development were (L-R) Lorcan Hoyne, L&M Keating; Denis Byrne, Denis Byrne Architects; Pat Dowling, Chief Executive, Clare County Council; Geraldine Enright; Director, Cliffs of Moher Experience; and Tom McNamara, Mayor of Clare.
Construction work on the 280 square metre building, which includes toilet facilities, meeting rooms and offices, will commence shortly and is scheduled for completion in June 2018.
“The development of improved visitor facilities is imperative considering the Cliffs of Moher’s status as one of Ireland’s most visited natural attraction,” commented Mayor of Clare Tom McNamara.
“I am delighted to see that the new building has been designed in keeping with the design of the existing visitor centre and will improve visitor services including the provision of additional toilets for visitors arriving at the visitor attraction by coach,” he added.
For the fourth year in a row, the Cliffs recorded one million visitors within a calendar year in mid-August. The North Clare visitor attraction is now on track to exceed its record visitor total of 1,427,166 people in 2016.
