Stunning but couldn't find the loop path and ended up walking a lot longer than planned!

Really worth coming. Such a gorgeous walk! But we couldn't see the turn. It's not well marked and... read more

I was working in Cork City all week, and desperately needed the quiet and solitude of this place. My only suggestion is that when you arrive, don't park in the little village like I did. Keep on driving until the road stops. Don't even think...More

This was recommended to us by a lovely local lady. She was right on the money. This was a very enjoyable walk out and back. The sun burned brought the clouds and gave us a wonderful view of the cliffs, farmlands, and lighthouse. It’s a...More
