This walk is as advertised. Unbelievable views. I travelled to the area on business and drove out to Ballycotton for my usual morning run instead of running near my hotel. There terrain can be a bit rugged for running but it is manageable. This walk is one of the highlights of the area. Do not miss.

Fabulous walk in East Cork. Beautiful views overlooking the sea, cliffs and lighthouse. The walk is narrow and rough though, so it is not suitable for buggys, wheelchairs or people with walking difficulties.

Went here for an afternoon walk after seeing it recommended on Tripadvisor. The walk was pretty much deserted due to the time of year, but we managed to catch the first of the spring sunshine. The walk is fairly narrow so i reckon this could be a problem in the busier months but we had none of these problems. The... More

We love Ballycotton and the Bayview Hotel which is the ideal place to sally forth to do the spectacular Ballycotton Cliff Walk, so beautiful and also great exercise!

I have walked this wonderful walk on a number of occasions and it never fails to thrill. The views are spectacular on a clear day and while parts are a little challenging it is worth the effort. There are a few seats along the way for a rest and to enjoy the views. Ballycotton is a wonderful location and the... More

Decided to try this walk one sunny Sunday morning before Christmas 2014. The views were absolutely beautiful. The walk took much longer than estimated due to stopping every 5 mins to take a picture! It was a little muddy and slippy in parts so wear a pair of hiking boots if possible.

If you decide to walk along this cliff walk you are in for a treat. The ever-changing colours of the sea, the wonderful light and the refreshing breeze all make this a must do. It is not very difficult provided you stay on the upper path. It could do with a protective rail on the seaward side in some places,... More

I had the pleasure of living in Ballycotton for a few months, I would regularly walk the cliff and it was just fab, even better in the summer. I would advise you to bring a jacket as it is quite windy :)
