Hiking The Doolin Cliff Walk with Pat Sweeney (the Godfather of the Trail) was without a doubt one of the most amazing experiences of my life. On my recent trip to Ireland my wife and I spent 15 days driving all over the Emerald Isle. We visited pubs, rode horses in Killarney, rode bicycles on the Island of Inishmore, flew... More

This walking tour is simply amazing. Pat Sweeney who leads these tours is a local resident who is actually the one responsible for the creation of the walking trails. The trails go right along the edge of the cliffs and offer the most stunning views -- and Pat's tour includes a view you can't get to any other way. Pat... More

The views at the cliffs of moher from this tour get 20 out of 5 rating. Possibly the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. The views of the Cliff that you get from this tour are not at all available from the Cliffs of Moher centre. On the tour you can get as close to the cliffs as you want,... More

We had a fabulous hike with Pat on a rather blustery morning. He is so passionate about working on this trail and this beautiful part of Ireland which is his home. Put this on the top of your list of things to do in Western Ireland!! The views are breathtaking and you have a vantage point so completely different that... More

Thank you Pat for your persistence in getting this walking trail from dream to reality! Pat showed us the trail from Doolin to the Cliffs of Moher and shared personal stories about the trail. My only suggestion is to allow more time to take in all the beauty. We enjoyed the trail so much that after a quick lunch at... More

Pat has the unique capability to give you the feeling like you grew with him in this beautiful area. the walk with him gave us (me, my husband and two teenagers, 12 and 17) the feeling we came to know the area intimately, through the loving eyes of Pat, whose life are tied to every inch of land in this...

My wife was right again! She told me that the Doolin Cliff Walk has 44 reviews and they are all 100% excellent. I told her that is impossible and must be fakes. I had a few too many whiskeys last night as the music was so fantastic and it was raining this morning but she still dragged me on the... More

I was not disappointed. Pat was very informative about the work he has done to build up the walking path we... More

This was a three hour moderately strenuous walk to the top of the Cliffs of Moher. It was a fantastic way to see them. Although we didn't have Pay Sweeney as our guide (he was booked with another group), he left us in the capable hands of his young friend, Shane. Shane didn't have all of Pat's stories, but he...
