We stayed in Doolin and decided to hike all the way to the Cliffs of Moher. It took a bit more than two and a half hours and was a great walk to the Moher. Apart from the scenery, the cliffs, add to it the fact that it's a free way of seeing the entire Cliffs of Moher.

If you are going to the Cliffs of Moher hike them with Pat Sweeney. Amazing views and you are so close to the edge at certain points that one wrong step could be the end! Pat tells stories and explains the path. Great guy.

When my wife and I saw the Cliffs of Moher in spring 2011, we did so at the observation area where most tourists go. I recall how magnificent they seemed to us. On October 17, 2014, my daughter and I took the Doolin Cliff Walk guided by the passionate, knowledgeable, and dedicated Irishman, Pat Sweeney. Wow may be the only... More

My husband and I just finished the cliff walk yesterday with Pat. Words cannot describe how incredible it was! We were staying at The Doonagore Farmhouse B&B, owned by Pat & his wife, and the walk was included with our stay. Otherwise, it's €5 per person. We met outside O'Connors Pub and began the walk uphill towards the cliffs. My... More

We did this walk last month on the recommendation of our B&B host. What a highlight of our mini break it was! The weather was fabulous, making the views spectacular. Will definitely come back to Doolin just for this alone.

Without hyperbole, the cliff walk with Pat Sweeney was the highlight of our 10-day travels around the Republic of Ireland. It has always been my perspective to get outdoors and move when my legs, knees, and body are still healthy enough to carry me to the tops of mountains and along trails, and the cliff walk is one thing I...

You can walk either with the guides (each day at 10:00 from the O'Connors pub) or on your own. The pass is well marked. Start from the O'Connors pub (you can park next to it), go down to the junction and then up, till you reach the gate into the pass. It's marked. It's about 8km to the visitor center... More

We just got back from an amazing trip to the Irish countryside which included a wonderful walking tour to the Cliffs of Mohr with Pat Sweeney. Leaving from O'Conners Pub in Doolin, we experienced a 3 1/2 hour walk all along the beautiful cliffs that are home to Pat and his family and the place where he grew up. His... More

This guided walk is to die for. Pat met our small group in Doolin at the commencement of the walk. Pat happened to be tied up that morning, so his friend, Marie, who also does her own guided walks of the Burren, was our guide for the day. Marie, we love you! As someone who grew up on a local...

Amazing day with Pat! The walk took about 3 1/2 hours and we walked about 3.75 miles. It was great to hear the stories and the history. We were so glad we did this tour with a local instead of just going to the visitors center and walking it on our own. Pat is an inspiration!
