This a really great cliff side walk that begins at St Declan's well and church ruins. The views are stunning. The path is rough in places not suitable for a buggy and you will need to keep young children close but is definitely well worth a visit.

The perfect way to spend an hour or two if you are around Ardmore. If you are staying in The Cliff House Hotel, like we were, I would definitely recommend it - the walk actually begins at the hotel, so its a perfect way of walking off the delicious dinners! ;) We were lucky with the weather but I would...

This walk is so cool! There is so much to see, from Saint Declan's holy well and church to the Samson crane ship shipwreck, you will be amazed at every corner. Looking out to sea, you might be lucky enough to get a view of a whale! 3.2 miles round trip, well worth it.

Did the walk with some family members the view was excellent and the walk was not difficult. The "path" is uneven with exposed rocks and had one of the family had a near miss with a rock and their ankle.

We brought our two tweeners several years ago and they really enjoyed looking below into the sea off the cliff. I've returned with one of them, now 18, and she simply loves it here!

this is a beautiful walk, it has history, and good signage to let you know what you are seeing. The views are fabulous, its narrow in places, so you have to walk single file

I love this walk! Cliff top views, opportunity to spot Dolphins, harbour porpoise, basking shark etc. Historic ruins on route - st.declans well, watch tower and old church. If you stray off the path you can seek out the T-flag though this is not signposted. Decent walk safe enough for older kids though my heart would be in my mouth... More

Started by the beach and walked past The Cliff House Hotel. It is an easy walk about 4kms in total.You need good walking shoes as it is just a path trodden by the many walkers and is in its natural state. You pass St Declan's well and church first. There is a small alter where people have left memorabilia about... More

This is one of the main attractions in Ardmore, with stunning views of its rugged cliffs against the Celtic Sea. Along the route is the wreck of The Samson which is now mostly a maternity hospital for seagulls, but impressive nonetheless. It was surprising however that the trail itself was quite poorly kept; there was a considerable amount of dog... More

We did this walk on a misty day and it was still beautiful. We set off from the Cliff House Hotel and enjoyed every minute of it. It is a 4km loop and although relatively easy, there are some up hill bits that might be challenging for some people. There are lots of historical bits along the way - we... More
