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.

While not as impressive as the Cliffs of Moher, my wife and I enjoyed our visit to the Kerry Cliffs. Originally, this was not on our itinerary, but as something that had been on our itinerary was not available, our tour guide Anthony substituted a visit here. I think our guide made a good decision.

We were able to take a lot of great pictures of the landscape during our visit.

I am so glad that we stopped off at Kerry Cliffs. The short walk up to the cliff edge gave us a chance to prepare for the breathtaking views.

Photos can't do the views justice, it is an amazing place.

There are picnic tables available.

The toilets by the car park were spotlessly clean.

Enjoyed seeing the Llamas and donkeys, too!

Tour buses don’t go to Kerry Cliffs so they are a lot less busy and have some of the best views around. Mostly private tours and you can stop in town afterwards for lunch.

We are doing the Wild Atlantic Way, this is one of the stops. I was a bit disappointed you had to pay especially since the next point along the route also makes you pay (Geokaun). Kind of makes the WAW a little less accessible to some.. The view is really nice though and the cliffs look amazing. I would like a few more benches so you can have lunch or a rest since its uphill and some people may need to sit for a little.

Perfect way to spend an hour. Pretty good walk on very well maintained paths. The fence is sturdy around the edge and is safe. Well worth the money to see the cliffs and would definitely recommend.

This place is spectacular! I this it was 5euro each. It is about a 5-10 min walk to the middle and then you can choose to walk left or right to see more. Unfortunately the day we went the weather was not the greatest with extremely high winds. Make sure you have a good hold of everything so you don’t lose it.

Taller than the Cliffs of Moher. You can get closer to the edge and hear the crashing water more intensely. MUCH less crowded. Roughly the same price.

I am SO glad we decided to make a stop here. We had to deviate slightly from our Ring of Kerry drive, but the roughly 30 minute diversion was incredibly worth it. You also get a decent view of the Skellig Islands, just as a bonus.

The cliffs are on private property, so this is a very humble attraction. Small restrooms. No gift shop (at least, not when we were there in late October) or food. A small booth where you pay admission. Then a quarter mile walk through some pleasant fields and voila!, you are looking at some spectacular cliffs. There aren't as many as the Cliff's of Moher, and arguably, there are not quite as sheer. But if you like crashing waves, watching sea birds and having a sight largely to yourself (again, we were there late October. We shared the whole attraction with less than 30 people).

100% worth it. An exciting and breathtaking spot to stop.

We visited this place whilst on a road trip around the Ring of Kerry. We were surprised that we had to pay 5 euros each to visit, but it was on private land. There was plenty of parking and it was definitely worth it. At the edge of the cliffs it was extremely windy, despite not being a windy day. So I’m sure in bad weather this place would be wild! The views were spectacular and we got some amazing pictures. We were definitely glad we visited.

Whatever you do, do not miss this experience. It will take your breath away! Much prefer to the Cliffs of Moher.
Be prepared to walk, as there are viewing points in multiple directions. A photographers dream. In addition to the spectacular views, a lot of care has been taken in posting informative photos and facts about the sea birds in the area.
Don't miss the experience. Well worth the time.
