Start from Ballycotton and wear rough shoes in winter. Beautiful scenery, fairly flat and not the most physical. Usually you will see seals and lots of birds. Very nice food in town after your walk. Special Like: You park within 100m of the start of the walk!

Once you find the car park facing the sea, just walk up the hill to start your walk along the coast. Really beautiful on a nice day, a good relaxing walk. A few places you pass through are pretty tight so warning if you are obese.

We decided to head to Ballycotton after a busy day that started in Cobh in the morning and Midleton in the afternoon, finishing with the cliff walk in the early evening before heading back into Cork City for dinner. It was a misty and windy day and the grass and rocks were a bit slippery at times, but the views... More

this cliff walk is amazing,,,,,but please dont attempt it if you are not mobile enough or not fit enough , you need to be agile...fairly fit. and not afraid of heights....some parts of this walk are very dangerous so be very careful...........but the sea views are brilliant on a clear day.....

We did this walk in the howling rain and it was still beautiful. Dramatic views and not too challenging terrain. Well worth the walk if you're in the area.

On a nice day it is beautiful and scenic, on a wet and windy day it is a visceral example of a wild coast, either way its worth a visit

We walked out along these cliffs when we were in the area. It is an easy hike and the views are wonderful! It was easy enough to park when we were there, though this was on the shoulder season so not sure how that might work out in the summer. For us, it was a beautiful time to connect with... More
