It's a totally beautiful and peaceful place to visit, don't miss it! If you like walking, its an easy walk, and you can make it as long as you want, go only half way or walk for hours.

A really fun hike. Not too challenging and the view were superb. Great place for watching seabirds. Lots of well placed benches. Not as dramatic as the west of Ireland, but easy access from Cork City on the 240 bus.

Definitely worth a visit. Makes for a lovely stroll and the possibility to see some 'cliffs'. Great when you're on a short holiday and don't have time to drive west.

What a beautiful walk, keep going as long as you can and just breathe in the gorgeous sea air. You'll pass lovely little beaches, soaring cliffs, lots of birdlife and green fields.

We did. Found a little cave at one of the little beaches as well as great boulders serving as wind blocks at one of the headlands. Beautiful place
