Our family of 9 did the cliff walk with Pat on 4/21. Although the climbs and some of the areas along the walk are rigorous for those unaccustomed to exertion, the views are 100% worth the climb. Was one of the best parts of our...More

This WAY exceeded our expectations! Pat is an incredible guide and just hearing his stories would have been fun. But then to experience the awe of the cliffs with him was unforgettable. I wasn’t sure how our 15 year olds would feel but they loved...More

The walking trail is more worth it than the cliffs oh Moher to be honest. The view on the walk is unbelievable. There are a couple of steep slopes but otherwise it's quite flat, so an easy trail. Google Maps suggests that we can walk...More

This is a 4.5 mile hike, steadily but mostly gently uphill, from Doolin to the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Center. You get spectacular views, and your guide, Pat Sweeney, gives you a lot of local information and history that you would miss if you hiked...More

This was the highlight of my trip. It had the most amazing views of the cliffs. Pat is an interesting and fun guide. I loved his stories of growing up there. My 10 year old stayed up with him at the front and was so...More

Highly recommend Pat Sweeney’s adventure walk as the way to see the Cliffs of Moher. You get incredible views of the cliffs that you wouldn’t get from the visitors center. And while you can do the walk unguided, Pat gives a great history of Ireland,...More

This is an amazing hike for anyone able bodied enough to handle an 8 mile hike! There are spots where you have to climb and lots of it is quite rocky and muddy. There are also a couple spots that take you within 1-2 feet...More

5.6 miles, mostly up hill on a rocky, sometimes gravel, sometimes grassy path. It is a fairly strenuous 3.5 hour hike. It is absolutely worth every ounce of sweat. Pat Sweeney was our guide and Beth assisted with the party of 14 tourists. There were...More

If I could give Pat Sweeney 10 stars for this tour I would. First, the Cliffs of Moher are breathtaking from the vantage points Pat gives you, but the real treat is hearing about them from a local Irishman. Basically, Pat is like the mayor...More

Ditto what the others said! I had a friend also view the Cliffs from Killean (sp?) south of the tourist center. I can't comment on the walk but she did say it was a great view and not nearly as insanely crowded with people... More
