If you are in town, visit them. They are beautiful and less crowded than Moher Cliff. It was a cloudy and windy morning but they are still amazing. Admission is 4 Euros and the whole visit takes 15-20 mins. Enjoy.

I've visited Moher and Slieve League as well and I must say that Kerry Cliffs were better than Slieve League. They were stunning and being on the cliffs themselves also allow you to have a closer observation of the waves and birds. The area of...More

We nearly didn't make it up to the top of the cliffs (walking) due to the extremely strong winds but it was certainly worth the effort (and windswept hair!). Amazing views of rugged coastline and the Atlantic Ocean pounding the rocks. A must-do!

We didn’t even know these cliffs existed, but followed a sign to find them and it was certainly worth the effort. They’re almost as spectacular as the far more famous (and far more crowded) Cliffs of Moher. It’s a bit of a climb to the...More

Absolutely beautiful site with views for miles. Lots of parking with a small admission fee and trails running in both directions across the cliff face. Stunning views of the cliffs and the islands.

Having been underwhelmed by Cliffs of Moher!!! These Cliffs are just spectacular well worth stopping off and paying 4euros to walk the path and 3 view points: hold onto your hats though it’s pretty gusty but the viewing platforms have high barriers which give great...More

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.
