If you're in Doolin or nearby this is a must. Such an enjoyable walk with so much beautiful scenery. The walk itself is trying at times but well-worth it. Good walking boots or runners are a must as there a lot of boggy patches (even in good weather) to be negotiated along the way.

I had read about this walk before my trip and noted that there was no shuttle bus service running in the 2020 season so we were facing having to do the return walk as well. My husband and I are in our early 60s and while we are reasonably fit we are not avid hikers or Camino-type walkers! However, we did it! And what a pleasant walk it was too! We were lucky with the weather which was a bonus. It took us just over 2 hrs to walk from Doolin to the Visitors' Centre. There were some climbs but not too steep. Good sturdy footwear is essential and keep away from the cliff edge, of course. It can be mucky in places too so white runners are not advisable. It would have been helpful if there were some signs to indicate distances. The last part of the walk was closed so we had to move on to the busy road to get to the Visitors' Centre. The latter is well served with coffee, snacks and toilets. (No facilities on the cliff walk). We took an hour to rest and the return walk was a little shorter (1hr 45mins, mostly downhill). The weather closed in a bit on our return to Doolin and it can change very quickly on the west coast so bringing layers and a rain mac. Overall this walk has a lot to offer in terms of views and photographic opportunities. It was worth doing in spite of the 10 miles approx in total that we walked ( which included touring the area at the Visitors' Centre) ....don't let that deter you ....it's worth it!

Lovely views of the cliffs and surroundings. We walked half way to the cliffs of Moher tourist centre. The shuttle bus isn't running due to COVID but the distance was very manageable. The wind was quite blustery at times but we felt safe as the path was away from the cliffs edge.

This wall is just up from Doolin and its lovely. It's tough in places and ensure you wear suitable shoes for walking. It was wet enough when we walked it so lots of jumping over puddles. It's very steep in places so maybe not safe for small kids but fine for adults :-) also it's a free walk to see the cliffs of moher if you park in Doolin 👍👍
