Please go here! One of the most beautiful places I've ever seen! Very quiet, not a lot of tourists, so you get a true taste of the serenity of the Irish coast. The little town is great too!

The path is just wide enough for a person to walk down. It is mostly earth and rock. The views are very nice. When we were there it was very windy, but it was still so much fun. There were very few people on the...More

Brilliant views from the cliff walk especially on a sunny day. There's a few spots where you can walk down onto the rocks near the ocean on a calm day. Lovely place and the locals are friendly!

I have great walks with an excellent view along the way. Need to allow over 2 hours to do the full walk. Great when the weather is good, but still great fun. A very peaceful & tranquil walk

Wonderful airy walk along Ballycotton cliffs, highly recommend. There are 3 loops possible, longest 10 km. Not suitable for buggies and children must be able and willing to walk :). Werealy enjoyed it. Lots of space forthe picnic afterwarfs.

We did. Found a little cave at one of the little beaches as well as great boulders serving as wind blocks at one of the headlands. Beautiful place
