Overview

Kerry Cliffs. Kerry Cliffs are widely accepted as the most spectacular cliffs in Kerry. The cliffs stand over 1000ft above the wild Atlantic and were formed in a desert environment 400 million years ago. Out to the west stand the amazing Skellig Rocks one of only three UNESCO world heritage sites in Ireland. Of course the Kerry Cliffs are the closest viewing point to the great rocks and also the famous Puffin Island. Allied with these facts as you stand at the summit of this mystical place and breath in the freshest of air, deep in to your lungs from the wild Atlantic and observe this natural wonder. You can relax and unwind and observe the majestic views from here which reach out for 30 miles of the surrounding areas. Many Twitchers come here to us to enjoy and observe the thriving colonies of cliff birds. Our cliffs here in Portmagee provide you the opportunity to enjoy this spectacular location in a safe and natural environment. We are located just off the Skellig ring in Portmagee and the cliffs are just a 10 minute walk from our entrance. Also for good measure we have a coffee shop with indoor and outdoor seating where you can drink in this marvelous panorama. We can also arrange Boat Trips to Skellig Michael for you.

So happy we decided to venture down to the Kerry Cliffs. I am somewhat hesitant to compare them to the Cliffs of Moher, because the two are quite different, but if you forced me to choose one as a favorite experience over the other (and...More

As we drove round the Ring of Kerry we saw a couple signs that said 10 mins walk to the cliffs. We were sceptical as most of these are rip offs but we could see lots of different viewing areas off in the distance. We...More

The Cliffs of Kerry were absolutely magnificent. It was 4E/person for the admission, and it was well worth it. There were three beehive huts to look at and walk into, some livestock in the pastures around, and of course the stunning walkways up and around...More

What incredible views !! From two main viewing points the scenery is simply stunning. Not overcrowded and not overly steep for moderately fit people. A must !!

We are so glad we stopped to see these amazing cliffs. The contrast between the rock formations & the ocean was beautiful. It was May so the green grass had not fully blanketed the ground yet, but it was still very pretty. I imagine that...More
