lovely village with a spectacular headland. Great for an extended walk if you choose to go the whole way.

At least once a year, during lovely Irish summer, come here to meet the Sun. Magnificent view over lighthouse and island. Go to the pier and see fisherman leave to sea. Bring hot coffee with you. Enjoy the quiet.

What makes this walk different are the coastal views as you go, The village of Ballycotton is also worth a look. The views and the seabirds are definitely the main attraction, the walk starts in Ballycotton and finishes in Ballyandreen beach some 5 Miles in all. Of course if this proves too far you can turn back at any time.... More

Such a beautiful part of Ireland and not really that well known. We had a walk along the cliffs and stopped for a drink at Pier 26 afterwards. Must see

While in Cork on business, I have taken the Ballycotton Cliff Walk two different times. Once in September and once again in October. This is an easy out and back walk with some very nice views and a few places where it is easy to walk down to the water's edge. The views of the sea and Irish countryside are... More

Some friends and I went on this hill walk as a spontaneous trip to get some fresh air outside the city. It was a clear morning, so the walk was pleasant until it became windy and rain started. In good weather, this is a highly recommended stroll. I was without my son because I am too nervous on cliff walks... More
