My fiancé and I wanted to hit the ground running (or hiking) to help us acclimate to Ireland after a transatlantic flight and a drive from Shannon airport to Doolin. So, we thought a hike along the Cliffs of Moher would be the perfect solution. We had heard about Pat Sweeney's Coastal Walk and thought that would be the best... More

My wife and I have had the pleasure of hiking in some pretty awesome places including Glacier NP, Grand Canyon, Bryce, Tetons, Zion, Multnomah Falls, Chimney Rock, Shenandoah NP, etc. All of these hikes are beautiful and breathtaking. But, nothing can compare to the hike from Doolin to the Cliffs of Moher, especially with a guide such as Tony who... More

My family hiked the cliff walk from downtown Doolin to the top of the Cliffs of Moher and it was fantastic! The entire hike took us about three hours to complete and provided incredible views of the cliffs and the Ireland coastline. The walk traverses along the coastline and across many different farmers properties. I highly recommend this hike as... More

We walked a good bit of the extended hike. It was breezy, but not blowing a gale. Hikers need to be cautious and watch the weather as these cliffs claim lives.

The walk/hike was great. Beautiful views around every corner. I have done this hike before it became open to the well-known public/tourists and I have to say that I am was quite disappointed. The amount of tourists on the trail was 20 people too much and the amount of trash and cigarettes that were thrown on the ground and I... More

We had intended walking from Doolin to the Cliffs of Moher with Pat Sweeney in the morning but the weather was so so wet and stormy that we gave it a miss and walked by ourselves in the afternoon when the weather was a little better.The trail is well marked and follows the coast for the most part. The trail... More

We have done this hike from the Cliffs of Moher 3 times over the past three years. It is wonderful for the most part, great walking and views. The trail gets washed out in a few areas and it's dangerous to navagate. I wonder how it will be next time. I think it need a few path adjustments in areas... More

My husband and I did this walk on our vacation in Doolin. We were greeted by Pat Sweeney and then his guide Tony took over. The views were absolutely breathtaking and so much better than driving up there. I loved the passion that both Pat and Tony clearly had for the land around and it really showed as Tony was... More

I visit Ireland on a regular basis and highly recommend this walk. I suggest walking from liscannor to doolin. Rely on a public bus or taxi to get you back to your car or lodging. You can take a break at the visitor center. It is an all day walk but a great way to spend a day!!
