This 2.5 hour guided hike along the cliffs of eastern Ireland is spectacular. It was reasonably priced and only a 30 minute drive from Belfast. If you enjoy the outdoors and great scenery with a little history and craic town in don't miss this tour.

Robert was our guide. The weather was awful but it didn't hinder our enjoyment. We saw porpoise and a seal as well as the birdlife. The most challenging part is the uphill climb at the end but taken slowly it's achievable!

The whole walk was open, with the exception of a small section that would have gone into a small cave which is closed. By the look of it the section will be closed indefinitely. Hope you enjoy.

I have a fear of heights and it was fine for me. The path is not that high, there are railings all the way separating you from the edge, it’s a really great place, enjoy 😀
