The Cliffs of Moher are home to over 7,000 Puffins and one of the most common questions we get asked is when is the best time to see them on our cruise. 

The answer is from the months of April to late July, during their breeding season. For the rest of the time, the birds live out on the sea. They really are cute little things, with their tiny wings and beautiful orange beaks - and "little" is a good word for them too - they are usually no more than 10 inches tall and weighs about 500 grams (aww :) )

And seeing as I am posting this on St Valentine's Day, you might like to learn more about these little lovebirds in our video:



or in our blog - The Ultimate Guide To Cliffs Of Moher Puffins

Or even better, come and see them for yourself on our Cliffs of Moher Cruise (between April and July!!) 

Happy Valentine's Day to all :)
P.S. Did you know that St. Valentine had his heart buried in Ireland? In Whitefriar St Church in Dublin... a little trivia for you, might come in handy for a pub quiz ;)
