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.

We stayed in a cottage in Lough Ine, Baltimore for a week and decided to walk to the Beacon. Whilst it is rather steep, you are rewarded by amazing views. Baltimore is a lovely seaside resort. I would recommend to anyone as a holiday destination or location to discover the south western coast of Ireland.

Stunning place, get there to see the sunset you won’t be diss appointed. Tough climb up if you are unsteady on the feet.

A lovely thing to see stuck out on the headland with great views towards sherkin island

A 25 minute walk up a gentle hill to the end of the road then a slightly stiffer walk over the cliff top to the beacon. Beware of the winds - it is very exposed up there. Find a sheltered spot and enjoy the stunning views over the seas to the south. There are no facilities there - just the views.

I decided to walk to this location from Baltimore. Its just a twenty minute walk along the lane but you can drive to within 100 metres of it. From the end of the lane accessing the monumnet is up a steep grassy bank. There are paths but care should be taken. At the site there are unprotecyed sheer cliffs into the sea so strict care should be taken with younger chidlren. Given the right conditions this can be a intersting spot. It was unfortunate that I visited on a murky, wet day.

Tower at the entrance of the harbour in Baltimore. You can get there following the road and a path on the side of the hill. Spectacular views of the Atlantic coast and Sherkin Island, it’s opposite its lighthouse. Careful if it’s a windy day!

Our waitress on monday night said it was a 10 minute walk. Not sure from where but well worth the trek. The last bit does require scaling walls and sides of a hill so you need sensible shoes but the view was amazing. Wish I had binoculars to see the sea caves of Sherkin Island and further afield better. Some sheer cliffs so not for those scared of heights. Still can't believe it is as tall as it is wide

Difficult for us to get up the path to the actual base of the beacon. However we walked straight ahead over towards the ocean just after we parked and, without warning, were at the edge of the cliff looking down to the water below. Good views

Very nice walk out along the edge of the harbour as far as the beacon. May be very wild if the weather is bad but lovely if the weather is nice.

This is a cool location to visit. The Beacon was built to mark the entrance to the Baltimore Harbor. The views are great. The few watchouts for this visit - the hike is shore - no more than a few hundred meters to the beacon from the parking area. However, some of that hike is at a slope of about 45 degrees - it is a bit of a vertical hike. Also, you need to have proper shoes to climb - the area right at the start (near the parking area/fence) is usually very wet and there is quite a bit of mud -so, don't where those new shoes. Finally, there is no safety fence on the edge of the cliffs. The cliffs are probably 100 feet high, give or take. The wind can be pretty strong - so, watch young kids and be careful with small pets.

Class views of the coastline and the beacon is so unique! Worth the short walk, just watch out for high winds
