The views here are out of this world, absolutely breath-taking. These really are the best cliffs in Kerry (although the view from Bray Head on Valentia is a close second for me). Do not miss!

Small entry fee , walk up the slope to a stunning view. Great information about the views and birds. About 500m of cliff top views to explore

You are going to want to visit Kilkee if you are limited on walking. There are two really good viewing spots and one of them is in the parking lot itself and the other likely off limits to you due to a hike on uneven ground... More

Yes you can. Its a 40 min. walk one way to get to the cliffs. Just be aware that the road is very narrow and there is no sidewalk, so you have to be extra careful.
