We didn't realise how long the whole walk is so we only did about 45mins and then turned back to Ballycotton. People that we passed along the way said it is 9km from one end to the other so it could be a whole day out if you wanted it to be. There are plenty of nice places to stop... More

If you're travelling to Cork I'd recommend you take a trip to do the Ballycotton Cliff Walk. It was beautiful, just remember to take some water! After the walk go down to the Schooner Tavern for a pint and some soup! Just excellent!

Great views of the sea and cliffs and you can even get down to the rocky shore if you want to test the water. Easy to access from the Bayview Hotel.

We stayed at Castlemartyr and took the 15 minute drive. So worth it! Beautiful! Be sure to stop at the dock and take in the fishing port. Drive to the end to get to the cliff walk.

You really need a car to get to this location which is situated outside quark but it is extremely picturesque and well worth the trip that probably only takes about 35 minutes

The cliff walk was picturesque, complete with dairy cows grazing on the path back from the beach. The rock formations disguised by the sand resembled something out of the film the land before time. I was serenaded by the ocean waves crashing into the shoreline. This was definitely worth the drive.

I grew up in Ballycotton, and this route I travelled millions of times. I live overseas now and the highlight of my return trips are running or walking out here with my dogs. I love it,its fresh sea air clears my head and I believe in summer theres nothing nicer in the whole planet

Walk suitable for all ages, absolutely gorgeous scenery, easily accessable from village. A good way to blow the cobwebs off without too much effort.

I could spend all day here exploring. Quiet and un-spoilt beauty. Perfect for any time of the day. Fresh air is so rare nowadays. You will find plenty here.

The cliffs were amazing! The stairs were steep with no handrails, it was very windy, but the walk on the rocks at the bottom was worth it!
