We headed out for walk, took approx 1 hour 15 mins. Views were stunning, really beautiful place! Would highly recommend a visit. Ground slightly damp in places so take old trainers or boots (at least have a change of socks in the car!)

If you plan easy walking and have little time, this is your choice. Circular route, takes about one hour with continuous walking but you will want on several occasions to stop and enjoy the scenery - so give it 90 minutes at least. Easy hiking,...More

Well worth the spin out and definitely if it's a fine day. The walk way is well signed from the car park. The views are breath-taking.

At the end of a long lane at the top of Belmullet is the Erris Head loop walk. It is a great cliff-top walk, with only sheep and gulls for company. Clearly way-marked, it requires sturdy shoes/boots and wind jacket, and lasts about 1.5 hours....More
