This is a must see experience and it's free.Not great from small kids as it's a cliff edge but other than that it's beautiful more »
None of the tourist books told us to visit here. My cousins in Killala brought us and it was truly a highlight of our 8 day drive through Ireland. My son enjoyed it more than the Cliffs of Moher! Simply breathtaking (and a bit scary). Signs tell you to not bring dogs here for a good reason. Wonderful place for adults and teenagers/older supervised children. Puffins and seabirds lined the cliff ledges. The wind was blowing but it was beautiful.
Fantastic views, easily accessible. Windy on even the best day !
Incredible viewing point on the wild Atlantic way, well worth stopping to take in the view and see the ocean at work shaping the coastline.
Great views, nice fishing from the cliffs.
Beautiful views. Lots of history/info to be found on-site.
