This is a fabulous walk on a nice day with breath taking views all around. It's worth a trip from the city for a couple of hours to visit the area. Not suitable for anybody who is unsteady on their feet as the path is uneven and there are spots where you will have to manoeuvre yourself in some tight... More

If you are visiting the Ballycotton area then definitely do the cliff walk. It's a lovely walk along the cliffs to the west if the village. Fantastic views and from the furthest reach of the walk before turning inland you can see as far as Kinsale

This cliff walk is one of the most scenic walks in Co Cork I have done it a number of times, the views are spectacular . The walk is a little tricky though and suitable shoes for clambering are required as well as a reasonable level of fitness . Well worth the effort however.

Lovely walk with family. Not suitable for those who are not steady on their feet but a real treat out along the sea for those who love a fresh invigorating walk. Scenery really stunning.

While visiting Garryvoe last week we drove to Ballycotton and walked the cliff Walk two days running. It is a beautiful walk with most beautiful sea views. The weather was glorious so the sun reflecting on the sea was spectacular. Clear blue skies, birds singing and some fishing boats at sea just added to the beauty. There are seats along... More

Ballycotton Cliff walk is approximately 45 mins drive from Cork City, it can be found by driving through the village and taking a right before the pier. There are a number of parking places available at the cliff walk entrance & more at the pitch & putt course. It is a stunningly picturesque walk, with beautiful views of Ballycotton lighthouse.

I walk the cliffs regularly. The scenery is beautiful and the walk itself is quite easy going with an accessible path and gradual ascents and descents. It can be quite muddy in winter and a little slippy so wear sensible footwear and bring a grip stick.

Ballycotton shone in all it's glory during the brilliant sunshine. This cliff walk is amazing and a wonderful natural amenity for the area. If I had a complaint it would be that there are no indicators as to how long one had walked . A few markers here and there wouldn't go astray! Though not as spectacular as the cliffs... More
