Part of the Cliffs of Moher have become “dangerously unstable” and are at risk of falling into the sea.

Following several recent landslides at Ireland’s second most popular tourist attraction visitors have been warned to stay on official paths and to not trail close to the edge of the cliff.

A spokesperson for the Cliffs of Moher said the official path is the “inner path and not the bare earth track created by walkers”.

There have been several events in recent years where parts of the cliff face have collapsed into the sea 700 feet below.
