Beautiful place to spend the day with the sun shining you will find it hard to get a nicer walk or a picnic.

Lovely afternoon walking along the cliffs. We had a perfect dry, sunny day for this outing. Path well laid out, the walk not strenuous, quite enjoyable. Only one observation, didn't see any rubbish bins along the route. Must say thought, the place was clean and very well looked after especially by the restored lifeboat. Lovely flowers and benches to rest... More

Walked part of the cliff top walk - about 2.5km from Ballycotton there are steps down to a little beach - kids & dogs had great fun splashing around & climbing on rocks & exploring caves. There was even a little stream that flowed over the edge of the path at the back that was ideal for washing sandy feet... More

Went here for a stroll with my wife and 2 kids (7&9) over the Easter weekend. What a beautiful location for a walk. Nice gentle terrain that suits young kids. Would have been nice to be able to do a loop rather than having to retrace our steps, but, that is made up for with the path hugging the sea... More

I made this visit last Summer with family & relatives on a sunny but windy August day. The walk starts at the Western end of the village, from the car park and stretches a good 1.5 miles (25 mins walking) to the west. On a dry day, runners, sandals etc would suffice, but seeing as it's an earthen path, I'd... More

The place is quiet because roads are narrow to get there. The view is nice and the place is wild. The walk is easy and scenic. If you want to go to the bottom of the cliff, you need good shoes. High heels forbidden !!

Finally visited here after recommendations from friends & colleagues. It's between 1.5-2 hrs over & back depending on how slow you walk. We didn't bring along any refreshments - would recommend to bring a small backpack with water & there are plenty of places to sit & have a sandwich. Plenty of kids on the walk that we saw, although... More

We decided to go to Ballycotton for day trip from Cork and were a little worried about how much there was to do there with only one bus going at 8am and coming back at 4pm. Thankfully, we had no such problem with lack of things to do and had a wonderful day enjoying the Irish coastline. The cliff walk... More

Very nice walk. Great views, and not a difficult walk. It ends at a lovely little beach. Benches to rest on along the way.
