Nice place for a walk in a very scenic location, not too far from Cork City. Wear some decent footwear because there are no paths.

We recently enjoyed a sunny afternoon in Ballycotton. The walk along the cliffs is fantastic, full of wonderful photo opportunities. The children loved all the butterflies which seemed to be everywhere. We were short on time so could only manage to walk for about half an hour. The views of the lighthouse are great from the Cliff Walk.

This should definitely be on the agenda if you are in the area. Be careful to take the right fork road when you are in Ballycotton or you end up on the pier. Park the car up and take a picnic. It is not too difficult a walk but take sturdy shoes. Some really amazing views. There is a pool... More

Lovely walk with great scenery. If you are a nature enthusiast watch out for the common brown Irish lizards sunbathing on the stone walls! I'm not joking!! This walk is unsuitable for buggies and young children because of the path.

We had a wonderful time walking the cliffs at Ballycotton. Scenery was beautiful! Not for young children.

There's no better spot to take in the early morning sea breeze and savour the incredible views of the Cork coastline

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!
