Unfortunately, the weather was wet and cloudy when I did it, but nonetheless refreshing and enjoyable. A nice 70/80 minute walk there and back. It would be stunning on a clear day.

On a good day there is no more scenic place to go for a walk. It is not really suitable for small children as the path is at the top of a cliff.

Even though I considered stopping halfway and going back, it was totally worth it. The view is just beautiful especially if its a nice dry day. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys, walks, nature and a bit of a challenge i suppose.

Nice little cliff you can follow, that eventually leads to a very nice little beach. We really loved it, it's full of nice little wonders. People went bathing on the beach. Lovely thing to do on a sunny day.

Beautiful scenery at ballycotton. Unfortunately we were due to do the lighthouse tour but due to weather conditions tour was cancelled. We did the cliff walk which was very enjoyable, beautiful scenery. Ballycotton is most certainly worth a visit when in east cork

We were staying near Cork and were looking for a late afternoon hike. We found the Cliffwalk. Lord was it worth the short drive. The trail is 5 miles all the way out but the views along the way rival the Cliff of Moher without...More

Unfortunately Ballycotton cliff-walk does not allow for wheelchair access. There is a beautiful beach nearby called Garryvoe which has a large wide footpath and slipway access to the beach. Also Youghal promenade is suitable... More
