It is a bracing walk, not suitable for small children or people who have difficulty in walking. A walking pole would be useful if the ground is slippery.

Went with my fiance back to his home village, the cliff walk is stunning from the wells and seals to the wrecked Samson, worth the effort!

Started from the Cliff House Hotel with leaflet to explain all the the sites,although it is well signposted along the way. The views are fabulous and you can go at whatever pace suits you. Distance is 5k and there are a few seats along the way if you need to rest and contemplate. Most pleasant and relaxing and the fresh... More

If you enjoy soaking up beauty as you exercise this is a walk to enjoy sea views, coastal landscapes and historic sites. The walk has easy access and gradual ascents and descents so it is easy to stroll along while taking in the beauty. Highly recommend .

Ardmore is well worth dropping into, do the cliff walk, amazing views of the coast, St Declans well, ship wreck. The weather was perfect and was not too busy with other walkers if you need to get away from crowds. The walk is very easy around 4km and you will stroll around in around 40 mins, enjoy.

Walked on a busy Sunday afternoon, but the trail was not crowded. Begins with Saint Declan's Well and continues along the cliff and through the hills. A simple place for a nice stroll. Easy walk for anyone. There are a few ruins and things along the way that may be of interest.

This walk is a must do if you visit Ardmore. Aside from the stunning sea landscape, it's also home to St. Declan's Well, as well as other historic sites that you see as you walk along. It's only about an hours walk at most to do the loop and well worth the time

the cliff walk is an amazing walk: starting rom St Declan's well you walk for 60 minutes along the cliff. View breath-taking! No small children: too dangerous since in some parts there is not a lot of protection. When finishing the walk go and visit the Church (or the cathedral as they call it) with its Roundy Tower and the... More
