The Cliffs of Moher are 8 km long and 214 m high. The Cliffs offer views of the Aran Islands, Galway Bay, as well as The Twelve Pins and the Maum Turk Mountains to the north in Connemara and Loop Head to the South. "O'Brien's Tower was built in 1835 by Cornelius O'Brien a descendant of Brian Boru, the High King of Ireland and the O'Brien's of Bunratty Castle, Kings of Thomond, as an observation point for the hundreds of tourists who even then, visited the Cliffs." --http://www.shannonheritage.com/O'Brien.htm Keywords: landscapes (environments), towers (single built works), views, also called Cliffs of Mohir.
