The Fairy Bridges (cliff arches) are located along the coastal walk overlooking Tullan Strand. They are signposted so are not that hard to find. I would not advise letting small children loose around the area as it can be dangerous if they are left unsupervised.

Nice to sit in the fairy seat and make a wish, you generally stay about 5 mins so not a big attraction. Views are spectacular, be careful around this area you could easily fall into the sea.

We would always advise care in the area. We soon hope to have some interesting information panels that will increase the time spent there, but we are happy as long as everyone sees them and of course posts a photo on social media!!

The Fairy Bridges are beautiful and the scenery and ocean around them are amazing. While we were there, we say 3 baby dolphins swimming towards the surfers at Tullan Strand beach.
