The Irish name of the cliffs is Ailltreacha Mothair. Mothair was the name of a fort that stood here before the Napoleonic wars when it was replaced by a signal tower.

On the highest point of the cliffs there is an observation point from where, on a clear day, you can see as far as the Aran Islands.
