We loved this! We visited this the same day after visiting the Cliffs of Moher. Those, although breathtakingly beautiful, are quite crowded and the parking lot is filled with tour busses. We loved Kilkee even more because the solitude was perfect. We hardly passed anyone, and if we did they were Irish. There is a sweet little cafe we greatly... More

Had an absolutely spectacular day trip to the Cliffs of Kilkee. Left Quin, near Ennis, stopped for lunch in Killrush at Kelly's Pub, then drove to Killkee. Spent an hour in the beach as the tide went out then hiked up the North side of the bay (opposite side from Diamond Cafe). The waves were incredibly powerful/spectacular. It is a... More

100 million times better than the overhyped Cliffs of Moher. Moher is OK to see once, this is a place you will want to return to!! Excellent Cafe at the end in Kilkee, the Diamond something or other.

I consider this walk an essential part of being in Kilkee. I prefer to cycle to the area or if I have no bike to just walk to the café, meet a friend for a cuppa, and head off for the walk along the cliff. Now I am not as mobile as I used to be so I use a... More

Largely an unexplored walk, there is a car park at the Diamond Rocks from there follow the footpath, the Wild Atlantic ocean is always to your right with spectactular scenery. There is lookput points and seating along the way.

A lovely walk that is tarmaced and easy to do - naturally a bit steep in places. But a superb view . There is a car park . I would be careful if the winds are high

We did this walk in November but were very lucky with the weather. The views from the cliff are mesmerising. It is a moderately difficult walk with one very large hill in particular. Care needs to be taken in some of the Rocky areas also. There is a good path and excellent views of both sides of kilkee bay. There... More

If you are anywhere near these cliffs, do not miss the opportunity to walk them, up the clilffs and back the road takes about an hour, or drive out the Dunlicky (coast) Road which hugs the coast for miles until bringing you inland for a while as you head for the Bridges of Ross and Loop Head - allow half...

I had read somewhere these cliffs are better than the more well-known Cliffs of Moher. I have to agree. We organised our itinerary to stay in this tiny place of Kilkee and weren't disappointed. The walk is great and you get up close to the cliffs and it is really sensational. It is a round walk from town and return... More
