A beautiful cliff top walk. Very safe with fantastic views. Lots of information boards giving details of geography and wildlife. Well worth it.

I do not regret stopping by Ballycotton to admire the breathtaking views of the cliffs, lighthouse and sea. They are truly stunning. However we had to cut our walk short as some very aggressive and persistent wasps kept following us. Did take beautiful shots of the scenery though!

While this trail can be taken as a 'loop' (as a kind local told me after I asked), the loop would require 2.5 miles of walking on thin one lane (with 2 car) roads which I do not consider safe. Instead, opt to take the same trail ban With that being said, I would absolutely recommend going on this trail... More

Excellent walk to blow the cobwebs away, quite sheltered in places and right next to the Atlantic Ocean, great restaurants and pubs to have a relaxing break in Ballycotton

This walk can be undertaken any time of the year the smells, sea spray and scenery are a sure way to lift the spirits, even on the gloomiest day has to be one of the nicest in Cork, Ireland for that matter

The walks are very safe for families with little children and beautiful views, car parking can be tricky on a good summers day, but go early and all OK

This is great walk which takes in beautiful coastal views. The walk can be extended to bring you back in a circle to Ballycotton village. Should take about 1.5 hours. Make sure to have a pint and some pub grub in one of the lovely local bars.
