Inspirock Rating:
4.8/5 based on 340+ 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.
