It was a beautiful day, a bit windy, but wonderful for Feb. Met a wonderful local, Phillip, an experienced fisherman. The views are amazing and the little town is so quaint. It is a must see. Only about a 30 min drive from Cork.

Beautiful Spot on the South Coast of Ireland with amazing views up and down the coast. Easy to find but one definitely needs wear hiking boots or old shoes as the trail is very muddy.

We picked a good day for it. Sunday afternoon, mild and sunny. Quite busy up on the walk, lots of families and kiddies but that was nice as well; cheery greetings from all who passed and the odd bit of good natured banter. Everyone in...More

This trail along the cliffs from the hamlet of Ballycotton south along the Irish Sea proved an ideal casual hike for this Canadian tourist. The track is narrow but it is well kept and well trodden by visitors and locals alike. The views are tremendous,...More

Please go here! One of the most beautiful places I've ever seen! Very quiet, not a lot of tourists, so you get a true taste of the serenity of the Irish coast. The little town is great too!

The path is just wide enough for a person to walk down. It is mostly earth and rock. The views are very nice. When we were there it was very windy, but it was still so much fun. There were very few people on the...More

We did. Found a little cave at one of the little beaches as well as great boulders serving as wind blocks at one of the headlands. Beautiful place
