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

This is not a taxing walk and the paths are well tended. You meander round some impressive coastline enjoying great views and (depending on the weather) some great sea-action. In stormy weather, the way the sea sucks and draws the cobbles and waves blast into the shore can be truly breath-taking!

Good walk and fairly easy. There and back to St Patricks well. Good picnic spots on the way and if you are brave a stoney beach but a steep descent.
