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.

The cliff walk is currently closed.
Cork County Council closed it because it is not possible to maintain social distancing. Didn't see any signs in the village telling people that the walk is closed, so you only find out when you go to the start of the walk.
