I have walked this wonderful walk on a number of occasions and it never fails to thrill. The views are spectacular on a clear day and while parts are a little challenging it is worth the effort. There are a few seats along the way for a rest and to enjoy the views. Ballycotton is a wonderful location and the... More

Decided to try this walk one sunny Sunday morning before Christmas 2014. The views were absolutely beautiful. The walk took much longer than estimated due to stopping every 5 mins to take a picture! It was a little muddy and slippy in parts so wear a pair of hiking boots if possible.

If you decide to walk along this cliff walk you are in for a treat. The ever-changing colours of the sea, the wonderful light and the refreshing breeze all make this a must do. It is not very difficult provided you stay on the upper path. It could do with a protective rail on the seaward side in some places,... More

I had the pleasure of living in Ballycotton for a few months, I would regularly walk the cliff and it was just fab, even better in the summer. I would advise you to bring a jacket as it is quite windy :)

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.

Lovely walk !! Breathtaking views spent summers there as a child and the memories were brought alive again. The Garryvoe Hotel then for lunch and i have never seen such big portions well worth it !!!
