I have been up here 4 times. Always ride my bike up for a good work out. Need to be prepared for bad weather as this place is exposed. Well worth the effort.

Hi I would walk the Horn Head loop. You can park at the bottom and walk the road up. It is a narrow road and cars will be driving up too. It is quite steep but worth it for the view. It would maybe take a couple of hours... More

Walking the whole of the peninsula would take a long time. Probably better to drive it and park to take in the awesome views. Or, better still, ask a local. Sorry I can’t be of more help but do enjoy the scenery!
