Good two hours

This is a great walk. Beautiful coastline. It is about an hour and a half to two hours return journey. Not suitable for small children or animals that run crazily off the leash.

Bring water. Beautiful with many scenic coastline views. In the Spring you can see the flowers blooming. Consistent incline followed by consistent decline.

Spectacular views, new experiences and a wonderful way to spend the early morning. Since our days were filled, my two sisters and I rose at the crack of dawn and made our way to the cliff walk. Parking in available for free at the entrance of the walk. The walk goes for miles and miles, but you can go a... More

The best thing we did in Cork. What a lovely walk we had. It wasn't too long, there's a lovely loop around so different views constantly as you go around. Rugged and natural with lots of wildlife.

Gorgeous views and a well maintained walk on the cliffs at Ballycotton. It's an easy stroll that takes you to beach access along the way. Suitable for all ages, where necessary fences protect the edge.

This is a walk we regularly frequent when in Ballycotton and I cannot recommend it highly enough! No matter if it's a Sunday stroll with the dogs or on a not so nice wet day, the views and pleasure walking this trail is just great! You will feel the better for it, so if you can spare and hour or... More
