Ballycotton Cliff Walk, Cork

(4.8/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Very nice walk. Great views, and not a difficult walk. It ends at a lovely little beach. Benches to rest on along the way. 
  • Well worth a visit, really beautiful cliff walk. Lots of wildlife to be seen, especially birds! Fabulous scenery. Best of all, it's free! 
  • A slow walk along the cliff tops after a good lunch was just what we needed and we weren't disappointed. Great views and a good opportunity to feel the wind in your hair. Some good bird life too.
