About
Kerry Cliffs. Kerry Cliffs are widely accepted as the most spectacular cliffs in Kerry. The cliffs stand over 1000ft above the wild Atlantic and were formed in a desert environment 400 million years ago. Out to the west stand the amazing Skellig Rocks one of only three UNESCO world heritage sites in Ireland. Of course the Kerry Cliffs are the closest viewing point to the great rocks and also the famous Puffin Island. Allied with these facts as you stand at the summit of this mystical place and breath in the freshest of air, deep in to your lungs from the wild Atlantic and observe this natural wonder. You can relax and unwind and observe the majestic views from here which reach out for 30 miles of the surrounding areas. Many Twitchers come here to us to enjoy and observe the thriving colonies of cliff birds. Our cliffs here in Portmagee provide you the opportunity to enjoy this spectacular location in a safe and natural environment. We are located just off the Skellig ring in Portmagee and the cliffs are just a 10 minute walk from our entrance. Also for good measure we have a coffee shop with indoor and outdoor seating where you can drink in this marvelous panorama. We can also arrange Boat Trips to Skellig Michael for you.

In a word. Spectacular. Need a clear day to truly enjoy. Climb is a bit taxing but definitely worth the trek.

Excellent place to visit ! Not as impressive as the Cliffs of Moher but still a great scenery ! Each visitor must pay 5€ but toilets and parking are free.

While not as well known as the Cliffs of Moher, this is still a great stop along the Ring of Kerry. Spectacular views of the cliffs. There is a €5 admission fee but felt worth it. It does get extremely windy so come prepared!

Spectacular views. Well kept car park and walk way up to the cliff platforms. Well worth €5 for some brilliant costal photos.

Amazing views, but very windy so come prepared! The hiking isn't so bad, but it takes a while to go up and down because you'll be battling with the wind. Take your time and enjoy the views!

Great fresh air with a lot of wildlife on view as we walked towards the cliffs. We had to wait for the mist to rise before we could see the surroundings, including Skellig Michael, in all its splendour. The sights are breathtaking and well worth the fee of €4 per person.

This is a must visit location with its spectacular views. Another jewel to the Kerry crown. The owners were very pleasant and informative. The cafe and grounds are kept to a pristine condition. The place had lovely pictures and signage of the local wildlife on route to the viewing points as well as benches along the way. Such a picturesque location and is well worth a visit with plenty of fabulous picture opportunities!! Will definitely be returning again.

Stunning views and good view of the Skellig islands. Car park at the bottom with less than 5 mins to walk to the cliffs. Would recommend stopping even if short on time. Small fee to gain access, and cards are accepted. Small place for coffee at the bottom. I

Breathtaking views of the cliffs but plenty of photo opps. Stopped by for a quick view, and realized they charge €4 per person to enter. Paid and you walk towards the cliffs with two vantage points.
It was very windy when I went, so be ready. On the side there's more information about the cliffs, formations, and history.
