It's a really really pretty place and a lovely walk. Dangerous, too! After you walk for a while you get a choice. Either you walk downhill, closer to the cliffs, or you keep walking on the "official" route. I really had to overcome myself in order to walk near the cliffs and walk down the stairs . There's no handles... More

Great long walk with amazing views. Friendly walkers taking long walks to clear the cobwebs as it can be gusty. Wrap up well even on warm days as walkway is very exposed. Pity it isn't a circular route so you need to trek back, but minor if even irrelevant complaint.

This is a nice walk but it's not looped or you have to go back over the road. Going back the same way is always a bit boring I find. There should be a way to go back through the fields

Nothing fancy here. Rough path with puddles in patches. Gets you away from everything. Very relaxing with a wonderful view of the coastline. Safe as its not on the cliff edge. Can go off the path and take a trip down closer to the sea. Found myself wondering what's around the next corner. Seats along the path to sit and... More

Well worth visiting if in the Cork area. A must for nature lovers or hill walkers. Proper footwear essential. Why not bring the fishing rod and fish in the harbour?

Parking is close by, so quick and easy to start this walk. Great views. Lots of flowering shrubs around even in November. The golden gorse was particularly lovely with the sun on it. Quite a busy walk so you meet lots of other walkers of all ages.

Great walk and views are amazing. Need to go on a good clear day. Bayview hotel down the road a good option for food.

This is a very good cliff walk but it is not a loop walk. We walked for about 6km and then turned back so did 12 k in total. Weather was good when we were there but would not recommend it if it was very windy. It is also not suitable for those with walking difficulties due to the rough... More
