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.

I was up in Cork for a weekend with family and we were looking for some walks to do. This walk is great. It’s very popular with tourists. It has lovely scenery of the sea, islands and the farms. It’s an easy walk to do but it’s long. I wouldn’t recommend bringing a picnic.

Based on Tripadvisor reviews, we went out of our way to go on the Cliff Walk. It was beautiful, but didn't strike either of us as any more special than the other walks/views we had enjoyed while touring the Southwest Penninsulas.

Whilst staying in Ballymaloe we got encouraged to go to take the cliff walk .. and boy was it worth it ...
Stunning views all of the way ... old path but very safe ... and access to the water about 2kms down the path ...

the sea smell and the wildlife flying around made you feel you were lost in the countryside and with a personal view of the sea ...

Not a tough walk and the fact you have to walk slowly in single file made it all the more enjoyable

This is an amazing walk, truly stunning. I haven't enjoyed a walk as much in a very long time.
As some other contributors have nentioned,it is a bit muddy and slippery in places so good boots or trainers at the very least would be needed.
It's not overly arduous despite being rough underfoot at times. You are hugging the coastline after all so no real climbs or drops, just undulations.
Spectacular views of the cliffs and beaches below and of Ballycotton lighthouse back the other side of the town.
Free car park at the trailhead, I walked to the end of the cliffwalk and doubled back but there are loops you ca do to nsje your way back by road if you like.
There's a few benches along the way to sit and take in the scenery. Very exposed if you have bad weather, which thankfully I didn't!
Anyway, what an amazing couple of hours!

Beautiful scenery, nice walk. Proper walking shoes/boots needed. Very muddy. Bring spare runners to change into when you get back to car.

We ended our day in Ballycotton after touring aound Cork City for the day

The Cliff walk start was not easy to find but fortunately its a small town so we found some parking close to the trail & started our walk.

Its pretty flat all the way with a few narrow entrances to pass through along the way & a few warning signs not to go to close to the edge . Some cliffs are very high & some great views of coves along the way.

From what we gathered it was about 5km , we walked for about an hour & had not reached the end but it was getting late so we headed back.

There were a number of walkers , including a few young kids on their own. The trail is also known for various bird species.

The views along the way are wonderful & also a great place for a sunset . It was a great way to end a long day in the City . Ballycotton is roughly 40km from Cork City , 6km from Castlemartyr

There are three different walks here which vary in time taken to complete and distance. We did the shortest one; 5.5 kms which took about an hour and a half and it was stunning. Views are amazing..we were lucky as it was a lovely sunny day and we got to see the famous ghost ship which has quite a history, travelling from Haiti and then drifting to the coast of Africa, the Azores and then to Ballycotton.
Rock formations are fabulous here and apparently whales can sometimes be seen ( not by us, sadly)

Have done this walk many times, it is beautiful! There is plenty of free parking available. Wear proper shoes as it can be a little uneven in parts.

Visited picturesque Ballycotton today. Lovely cliff walk. The public toilets were locked!! This facility is surely required given the popularity of the place.
