My first walk in this area was for a Chernoval fundraiser, this walk brought me and all those wonderfull volunteers with similar views to me in aid of a good cause along that wonderfull view of the entrance of Cork Harbour, but it something that has been deer to me because of its marvelous sorroundings and of course the area the area of my adopted town of Cobh, Co Cork.

This path is my Wife's favourite but I am afraid I have to knock off a point for the fact that it is not a circular route so one has top retrace one's steps, assuming just one car is used. Before setting off please note that the path can be muddy (as it was in Jan 2013) so wear appropriate footwear. The path follows the cliff line, occasionally cutting in to avoid ravines and cross fields. At one point there is an opportunity to drop down to a beach - at high tide mind the beach pretty much disappears. We would normally walk on to the promontory which has a small knoll. From here a rest normally allows the sight of diving gannetts and cormorants, while seals and other sea birds are often seen too. Other birds to be seen include the yellowhammer and stonechat and not forgetting the peregrine falcons. If birds are not your thing why not just take in the view of Ballycotton lighthouse. And when done, simply head for Ballymaloe House and sample some cakes in the cafe by the shop.

Wonderful place to take in amazing views and stretch your legs. You can walk for hours and you can also explore the coastline below from a number of places. Breathe in the sea air!!

It does what it says on the tin, as they say. Its just a cliff walk, with no bells or whistles. THere are no gimics here no outlet stores just a car park and the walk. But let me tell you, its such a magnificent walk, i have been here on wet days and sunny days and windy days and they all bring something different but the view is magnificent. I took a day off once just to de-stress. i got in the car and drove and this is where l ended up. l parked here and walked and walked and walked. Then l sat on one of the seats scattered along the walk and just took in the view,the air and the atmosphere. IT was completely restorative.
