My family of 3, including my 20 and 22 year old sons, did Pat Sweeney's Cliff Walk in May 2022. The views were stunning and my boys would say it was the highlight of our week in Ireland. However, our experience seems to have been a little different than the glowing reviews of Pat and his stories that I read about here. Actually, I'm a little jealous! We didn't have Pat, our guide was a young lady who had started this job the week before -- she told us we were her 10th tour. She was very nice, but definitely had no real stories of the area or personal experiences there. She kept up a ridiculously fast pace that half the group couldn't maintain; eventually someone asked her to slow down and she did oblige some. So we're happy we did this walking tour, but disappointed in the fact that we didn't have Pat leading us.

I've actually done this walk twice, once in 2017 and again in 2022. The first was with my family and the second was visiting Doolin again with my partner's family. Pat makes the walk worth it. He gives great stories about exploring the cliffs as a boy and his family's history in the area and throughout Irish history (wars they fought in, etc.). He's very personable and is not giving a canned tour. He even gave us tips for the next week when we were seeing Co Clare in a match in Dublin for spots to go (and which colors to wear). He makes the tour worth it. That's why we chose to walk again with him rather than without a guide even though I'd done the path before. You'll see angles of the Cliffs that you'd miss if you drove up. It's amazing. Only warning, is you should be in reasonable shape to do this tour, it is a 9km walk. It is a cliff walk, but there are plenty of 5 minute or so stops for photos and catching up if folks need. We had about 15 people total in 5 groups and 4/5 never fell behind Pat the entire walk.

Our family of 5 (3 teens included) thoroughly enjoyed our cliff walk with Pat. Pat is a local sheep and cattle farmer, right there on the cliffs, so he was incredibly informative about the area. The walk was easy in some parts and very challenging in others ...especially when a rain storm blew in and the wind picked up a lot. The views are beautiful. It was a very memorable experience, and I would highly recommend it.

Pat Sweeney was an amazing and informative guide. Our entire family of 7 loved the trip in its entirety. The breathtaking beauty of the Cliffs, combined with Mr. Sweeney made the trip the highlight of our time in Ireland.

An amazing walk! The views away from the Visitor Center are incredible, and well worth the walk. Pat is the perfect guide - informative and entertaining.
