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.

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

Ballycotton cliff walk is a beautiful walk. This is a must for those who love the outdoors. It is very accessible with plenty of resting stops along the way. Wonderful sea views and landscape. Photographers I'm sure would really appreciate the views. A good pair of walking boots will help however when we walked it the weather was dry and... More

Although after the cliff walk I did change my perception of what sea breeze is, I loved walking along the shore. The views change with each step and the wind clears the head. The smell of the sea is lovely. There are places where you can go down to the water and the small beaches are adorable and so private.... More

Very handy car park. This cliff walk is just the right length for our 3 kids, aged 9, 6 & 4. It's also great fun, with just the right amount of adventure without feeling dangerous at any point. The cute little beach at the "end" feels like a reward for our 3 - we try to do it at least... More
