I walk the cliffs regularly. The scenery is beautiful and the walk itself is quite easy going with an accessible path and gradual ascents and descents. It can be quite muddy in winter and a little slippy so wear sensible footwear and bring a grip stick.

Ballycotton shone in all it's glory during the brilliant sunshine. This cliff walk is amazing and a wonderful natural amenity for the area. If I had a complaint it would be that there are no indicators as to how long one had walked . A few markers here and there wouldn't go astray! Though not as spectacular as the cliffs... More

If you like cliff walks or fishing then is the place to visit. Being from the city it's been a long time since I visited this place of absolute beauty. A fabulous pier and a fishing village, with cliffs overlooking the lighthouse, etc. Close to Garryvoe and Shangarry and only 45 minutes or so from Cork City. A must visit.

This walk is as advertised. Unbelievable views. I travelled to the area on business and drove out to Ballycotton for my usual morning run instead of running near my hotel. There terrain can be a bit rugged for running but it is manageable. This walk is one of the highlights of the area. Do not miss.

Fabulous walk in East Cork. Beautiful views overlooking the sea, cliffs and lighthouse. The walk is narrow and rough though, so it is not suitable for buggys, wheelchairs or people with walking difficulties.

Went here for an afternoon walk after seeing it recommended on Tripadvisor. The walk was pretty much deserted due to the time of year, but we managed to catch the first of the spring sunshine. The walk is fairly narrow so i reckon this could be a problem in the busier months but we had none of these problems. The... More

We love Ballycotton and the Bayview Hotel which is the ideal place to sally forth to do the spectacular Ballycotton Cliff Walk, so beautiful and also great exercise!

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
