Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The well signposted, safe walk skirts the headland along the cliff path, across fields and down quiet roads. The information panels are beautifully illustrated and give natural, historical and social information. All elements are well maintained.

The walk begins beside the Beach bar pub which has a good size car park. The walk is 4km and is a mix of road, fields and coast. The cliffs are very small and it’s a easy walk. The signage is decent along the way. We wanted to check out the pub but we did the walk in the morning and were finished before pub opens at 12pm.

There are certainly much better and more dramatic cliff walks along the wild Atlantic way but a decent short walk if in area.

Newly revamped Walk way is a real gem, with loads of Information plaques on the trail detailing the history and the views are spectacular. I'd recommend with enough energy and fitness to walk to the Deserted village (End of walking Route) and turn around and walk backwards as the views are nearly more impressive on the way back and makes the walk a really nice one, You can finish with a well deserved Pint or Soup at the Beach Bar.

Super coastal trail. Great views and right on the beach. Really interesting archaeology and WW2 lookout. Beach Bar one of the great Irish bars is also nearby. We'll worth a visit while on the Wild Atlantic Way.

We visited this walk about 10 years ago and we were really looking forward to the visit. The sign to the aughris head is a right turn. Continue straight on and park at the bungalows. There is a pier down a short steep road.
The path is hidden with flower baskets in the middle of the entrance.
Walk on the grass path is beautifully maintained and mowed. The view over the ocean and Ben bulben on the far shore is breathtaking.
The path continues to climb and a fence protects from the rising cliffs.
Eventually you must clamber beyond the security of a fence and onto the cliff walk proper adjacent to quite high limestone cliffs. If you're interested in birding carry on around the bend and climb over the style and ahead there is unbeatable views of auks, skuas, fulmars, shearwaters, gulls, cormorants, shags, a world of sea birds.
We actually saw a great skua killing a gull, something neither of us had ever seen before.
It's a stunning place, a beautiful walk and with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean a place to cherish
