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.

Breathtaking Views
Oct 2020
Breath taking views! The cliffs were more impressive than imaged and well worth the entrance fee. There is a nice path along the edge which gives you views from multiple angles.

"Kerry's most spectacular cliffs!"
Sep 2020
We weren't planning on visiting, but a couple of locals really really recommended it to us, claiming they are "even better than the Cliffs of Moher!" I've never been to the cliffs of Moher but these were very impressive. We were at Slieve Lieag cliffs just a couple of weeks ago and these were at least that impressive!!

The access is great, really well maintained, with lots of interesting info on the cliffs, surrounding area, local birdlife and of course the Skelligs!

Definitely well worth a visit if you are driving past. Very glad we did.

This is a must if your anywhere in Kerry . Very well maintained car park and toilets and a coffee /snack bar as well. 5 min drive from portmagee.
The walks are very well maintained and safe and worth every penny of €4. The owner of the land has done a great job and deserves great credit and support.. The Cliffs are fantastic with amazing views on a clear day for miles around. We had a brilliant sunny day and the view of Skelligs was amazing. This is A hidden gem. The whole Area is beautiful. Also take in Valentia Island absolutely fabulous.

Excellent place to visit
Aug 2020
The views are incredible.

Some reviewers complain about having to pay a mere €4 admission fee. But, this place was built and is maintained by the owner of the land. Why do people expect everything to be free?

Good toilets.
Nice coffee shop.

(the man at the ticket office seemed to be having an off day when we visited, but i suppose we are all entitled to that once in a while.)
