Pat Sweeney is an amazing fellow on a mission. His walk is spectacular for the breathtaking views of the sea and the cliffs, but Pat Sweeney’s enthusiasm, knowledge and passion for the Coastal Walk Project is the reason to take this adventure. Elizabeth, his assistant...More
A thoroughly invigorating, 5.6 mile hike from Gus O'Connor's Pub, up 800 feet to the visitor's center and the top of the Cliffs. Spectacuar views far surpassing anything a bus-bound visitor would see. Quide Pat Sweeney is a local farmer with an appealing laugh and...More
I cannot say enough good things about this experience. Pat and his helper, Elizabeth, were so entertaining, helpful and full of knowledge. While this is not a hard walk overall, there are times where you are walking pretty much straight up so be prepared. We...More

We're in the same age group. Because we tend to travel "off season" the weather is always a bit of a concern insofar as rain, chill, and wind. Might be an idea to keep it in mind before you go walking as being soaked and chilly is never any fun. Wear decent shoes. There is that Irish coffee though !
Our original plan was to drive up along the coast from Killarney, stop at the Cliffs of Moher, then try to drive through parts of The Burren. The more I read reviews, I am wondering if it might be a better alternative to explore the cliffs in Kilkee, then proceed up the coast, bypassing the Cliffs and instead head to Doolin. I also found that there is a pitch and putt in Doolin that appears to be a good way to spend an afternoon. There is also mention on TA of a Clare Coastal Walk Project...More

Even though it smacks of the herd instinct, unless you are a veteran of previous visits to the Cliffs of Moher, missing out on such an experience when in the area would be a pity. I would recommend the walk from Doolin both from the scenery aspect plus the advantage of avoiding the scalping meted out to motorists to use the car park at the cliffs themselves. However, if that walk is not for you, the pitch and putt course in Doolin looks an interesting challenge (when viewed from the road)...More
