Gorgeous part of the country, parking nearby the start of the walk was handy. We were lucky that the weather was great on the day, barely a cloud in the sky.The views are fantastic and it was a great way to kill at few hours on a Sunday. Highly recommended.

We stopped here on our way from Cork to Dublin (staying the evening in advance of our return trip to the US). Ballycotton is an adorable village with great sites to see. Easy to find and straightforward park-and-walk-around made for a wonderful in-between tourist stop. The views were absolutely gorgeous.

Its a great spot for a walk with a view. There's a small parking area and two wooden tables & benches at the start of the path. On a nice, clear day the view can be lovely.

Ballycotton is a small Irish fishing village and just outside of it is the Cliff Walk. Plenty of parking at the beginning of the walk and a few seats along the way to stop and gaze at the wonderful view. A lovely place to go and relax (for free!) Best on a clear day as the views are amazing.

Ballycotten is a lovely town situated in East Cork, its possible to do the Cliff Walk if the weather is good, not advisable if there is wind and rain. Not suitable for young children but for adults its a lovely walk takes about 60 mins depending on your level of fitness. After walking you can then go to the local... More

Cliffwalk in Ballycotton is very easy with well marked track. The views are absolutely beautiful on a clear day. It is not suitable for buggies.
