Please go here! One of the most beautiful places I've ever seen! Very quiet, not a lot of tourists, so you get a true taste of the serenity of the Irish coast. The little town is great too!

Brilliant views from the cliff walk especially on a sunny day. There's a few spots where you can walk down onto the rocks near the ocean on a calm day. Lovely place and the locals are friendly!

The Ballycotton cliff walk is a lovely experience! There was no one on the trail and very nice views! I only did about 30-45 minutes of trail and turned back. Apparently there is more than 4-5 hours of trails over the Ballycotton trails, but I...More

I have great walks with an excellent view along the way. Need to allow over 2 hours to do the full walk. Great when the weather is good, but still great fun. A very peaceful & tranquil walk

Wonderful airy walk along Ballycotton cliffs, highly recommend. There are 3 loops possible, longest 10 km. Not suitable for buggies and children must be able and willing to walk :). Werealy enjoyed it. Lots of space forthe picnic afterwarfs.

Unfortunately, the weather was wet and cloudy when I did it, but nonetheless refreshing and enjoyable. A nice 70/80 minute walk there and back. It would be stunning on a clear day.

On a good day there is no more scenic place to go for a walk. It is not really suitable for small children as the path is at the top of a cliff.

Unfortunately Ballycotton cliff-walk does not allow for wheelchair access. There is a beautiful beach nearby called Garryvoe which has a large wide footpath and slipway access to the beach. Also Youghal promenade is suitable... More
