Much better and much more beautiful than the Cliffs of Moher. Free to see the cliffs and road which allows you to drive along the route of the cliffs

The cliff walk is exceptional and a must see for anyone coming to Kilkee. There is a large cafe but we didn't visit but other family members did and prices were comparable with other establishments nearby. The walk starts at the Pollack holes, a naturally...More

This has to be one of the best cliff walks in Ireland, with spectacular views and stunning sea stacks with shear drops to gigantic Atlantic waves where extreme care has to be taken if going anywhere near the edge.

A most beautiful walk. Walk, or sit awhile to rest and take in the views of the ocean,the fishing boats, and the lobster pots bobbing in the surf. There is nothing commercial about the walk but a great cup of coffee and cake is available...More

We went to Kilkee for one day and night and walked along the cliffs. Do not miss these! I think we liked these more than the Cliffs of Moher, not so commercial. Not quite as tall, but beautiful in a different way. You can walk...More

The kilkee walk is a thing that must be done if you are spending time in that area. You can walk cliff side if you're more daring, or a just stick to the path. There are benches where you can sit and take in the...More

This is a great place for a cliff walk. The crowds are much smaller than at Moher, it's mostly locals, and you can easily hop on over to the beach and explore the nooks and crannies of the Wild Atlantic. It's an easy drive and...More

Just stunning views. Probably liked these cliffs better than Moher as they were almost as high, but far less crowds due to being less publicized. We were almost by ourselves most of the time. Also, pretty cool watching guys fish off the cliffs. Highly recommend...More
