After parking the car in Liscannor (3km from lahinch) south of the Cliffs of Moher, we walked the 20km cliff edge along a path to Doolin which took 4-5 hrs, but with sheer awe and excitement. Is it for children or unfit people.. unfortunately not. Its 700 meters above sea level with sheer drops, its an undulated walk but nothing... More

I had done the cliff walk already once. In a previous year during the summer month. This time the weather wasn't too promising but we, Mary and myself, decided to go anyway. There were a few more walkers who had decided that the weather wasn't going to stop them. Overall the trail was a lot more quiet than the previous... More

The coastal walk can be done in its entirety or in portions, can be approached from the Liscannor side,, at the Cliffs themselves or from Doolin. A mini bus can bring you to any of these starting points or back from them so you needn't walk the whole distance and back again. The Doolin side is the more challenging though... More

My husband and I took this tour in late August 2015. This is the best way to see and enjoy all that the Cliffs have to offer. We met Pat's cousin at the Visitors' Centre and walked to the Town of Doolin, about 5 miles. The tour is for participants who are able to walk on uneven ground and climb... More

This is definitely the best way to see the Cliffs of Moher! Patrick did an amazing job as our guide having grown up on that land and currently still resides there. Even though it was a little over cast and slightly rainy the scenery was beautiful and we even got some rainbows! By the end of the hike the sun... More

I highly recommend the Doolin Cliff Walk with Pat Sweeney. It was a highlight of our week in Ireland! Pat is a local farmer that has worked for many years to open up the walk from Doolin to the visitor's center of the Cliffs of Moher. The walk takes about 3 hours and is along the cliffs through local farms.... More

Pat Sweeney exposes you to a hidden paradise, a path less travelled- far away from the throngs of tourists who see the Cliffs of Moher without even getting to come close to the REAL thing! This "walk" takes you through Irish farms, the rugged coastline, some very loving horses and lots of "Kodak moments" as Pat would refer to them.... More

We spent a week in Ireland, primarily in the South & West coast and enjoyed a lot of beautiful scenery. This walk was absolutely a highlight of our trip. The hike takes approximately 3 hours and does have some steep portions, but should be feasible for most (likely not elderly or young children). The views along the walk are far... More

This walk is superb! We drove straight from our red-eye flight, through the serpentine roads of the Burren to reach Mr Sweeney and this amazing experience, and our jet lag was simply washed away by the clear water and ocean breezes we encountered here. One of the best treks on our holiday, and we are already making plans for another... More
