What a beautiful walk, keep going as long as you can and just breathe in the gorgeous sea air. You'll pass lovely little beaches, soaring cliffs, lots of birdlife and green fields.

Love the Ballycotton Cliff walk. It can be quite busy at times. I like to start the walk from the Ballyandreen side as it is much quieter.

We went here late afternoon and it was a little breezy. The trail is narrow but it's not a difficult walk. Due to the wind, it was a bit chilly but otherwise, a great hike with absolutely gorgeous views. We stopped in the field where...More
