I love coming here and bringing my friends. Always enjoyable. Also now that lighthouse is open for visits, its definitely worth a trip...Make sure to bring a camera, rain jacket and a wear a good pair of boots. Then just enjoy the air and the views!

A lovely walk with cliff climbs if you're up for it - secluded and stunning. Worth holding out for some nice weather, so the skies are bright and clear.

Did this walk yesterday in glorious sunshine. Truly magnificent views out to sea & over the headlands. The trail is well trodden & not too challenging however because of the proximity to the edge of the cliff I wouldn't like to walk it in wet weather when the underfoot conditions are slippy. We brought a picnic to make the most... More

I did this walk while staying at ballymaloe house in August. I was lucky I went on a fine day. Its a lovely walk along the cliffs with lovely views over the ocean and to the lighthouse. I went as far as the end of the cliff part and turned around and came back the way I came. I think... More

We did this walk last weekend in wonderful sunshine. The path is narrow and you do have to make room to pass others by steeping aside frequently. It is not a difficult walk and the views are superb. There is also an opportunity to get down onto the little coves via steps that have been cut into the cliff side.... More

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.
