Skip the cliffs of Moeher and come to Kilkee. Beautiful cliffs and you can go out on the rocks. While not as tall, just as spectacular. We loved it here and it was like having the cliffs all to ourselves, as there were no crowds,...More

Our Ireland driver took us here one windy afternoon and at the end of our two week trip, we agreed that this walk was one of the highlights. Incredible views without the crowds!

We found this as we drove around town and it was wonderful! We enjoyed the walk and the views and have some great photos as reminders . We were pleasantly surprised at how un-crowded it was, which added to our enjoyment!

You cannot find better views anywhere else and it's completely free of charge. Equally stunning in good weather and bad but be prepared for a climb in one section.

This is a beautiful, peaceful walk with stunning views of the cliffs of Kilkee. It was so refreshing not to have crowds of people and tour buses. There is a small portion with a steep incline but all surfaces were smooth. Not to be missed...More

I visited Ireland twice this year seeing Cliffs of Moher first and Kilkee Cliffs on second trip. Kilkee is equally spectacular. It’s about a 15 minute walk from parking lot and there are so many less people and no charge to park. Thus is a...More

Excellent free activity to do in the west of Ireland. Much better than the Cliffs of Moher in my opinion!

Hi the path is well away from the cliff's edge, but there is no fencing, so a small child would need to be very well supervised. We walked up to the top, taking it slowly and it took about 30 minutes, but some would do it... More
