#4 of 14 in Historic Sites in Cork
Historic Walking Area Tourist Spot
Traversing meadows and cliffs, Ballycotton Cliff Walk represents one of the area's most scenic hiking routes. The 8 km (5 mi) path stretches from Ballycotton village to Ballyandreen beach, providing walkers with plenty of opportunity to spot wildlife and snap photos of the southern Irish coastline. Take time to read the notice board located in the parking lot to learn about some of the 300 species of birds that can be sighted along the way. The path is not suitable for bikes or strollers due to the many stiles positioned on the route.

  • Great views. 10 km walking. Take good shoes as it's easy for twisting an ancle
  • This was a beautiful walk, with several detours possible to walk or climb down the cliffs to the rocks and coves below. Loved it!
  • Refreshing walk along the cliffs. Very popular for families and dogs. Easy trail for anyone. Cannot get lost. Popular for bird watching. Really inspiring when storming.
  • What a fantastic place to be on a good sunny day. Edge of the world. ......

Where to stay in Cork

A destination in and of itself, Cork City has a dense center with plenty of hotels and hostels. Head north of the city center for affordable options like mid-range hotels and guesthouses. From here, you can walk or bike to all of the sights in the heart of the city. If everything is booked, or if you've simply come to explore the city's surrounding nature, check out the campgrounds about ten minutes from the center of town by car. There are also a number of charming bed and breakfasts, guesthouses, and other pensions in the outskirts, which can be a good option if you're using the city as a base for exploring the sights of Cork County.
