The Bridges of Ross is located on the Loop Head Peninsula about a mile north of the Loop Head Lighthouse (near the village of Kilbaha in County Clare). The Bridges of Ross were natural sea arches until two of them dropped into the sea. Only...More

Although this is a nice place to observe cliffs and sea, you can see much more north of this spot. Not worth the detour

The Bridges of Ross is actually one remaining natural bridge but the really special thing about this place is that you get very close to the water via rocks which lead like a ramp into the water. We just sat there and watched the waves...More

We were making our way back from visiting the lighthouse when we seen the sign for the Bridges of Ross. Well worth seeing if touring the Loop area, definitely worth the detour. Only one of the three natural bridges remain. The costal scenery was breathtakingly...More

Words can't explain why but this is the most perfect place I know. I go there and climb up a small rock face and sit and relax. On a good day you can see clear ocean for miles over the years I've spotted dolphins seals...More

Definitely worth a visit, beautiful rock formations a bit of the beaten track. About 2 km walk forth and back to parking.

What can you say? It was truly breathtaking. There is a small walk and no charge to park. Please see it you won’t regret it.

Better than expected attraction with breathtaking views. Nature is a marvel. Bridge of Ross is jaw dropping. Walking trail from parking lot to furthest points is easy to navigate on food. Bring your camera and a picnic.

A wonderful place to visit for scenery, a relaxing walk by the wild Atlantic or for seawatching from July onwards if you wish to see Skuas, Petrels or Shearwaters on their southbound passage. However a windy, showery day with westerly or north westerly winds is...More

Well worth a visit, assuming the weather is not too wild. Spectacular views on a good day - and awesome on a windy one! Lots of photo opportunities among the shattered rocks and sheltered pools. Keep back from the edge if windy - and hold...More

It's about a 15-20 minute walk from the parking lot on a dirt path. The path is clearly marked and not close enough to the edge to be a falling threat. The only worry you will have is the occasional massive piles of cow... More
