Ballycotton Cliff Walk

After the hustle and bustle of Belfast and Dublin it was good to arrive in Cork for 2 nights and then get down to the south coast for a good walk along the beautiful Irish coastline. The small peaceful fishing village of Ballycotton is about 42km east of Cork at the end of a headland and here you can take a wonderful walk along the cliffs with stunning views over the Celtic Sea.


A well marked path takes you along the cliff tops and fields on the coastline and all along the route are stunning views of the cliffs and the opportunity to see a rich variety of birdlife.

There are a number of stiles and gates you have to pass through – don’t do what I did and try to take a shortcut over the fence – I found it was electrified which gave me quite a little bang!

All along the top of the cliffs where the path runs are beautiful fields making for great contrast between the golden fields and the blue sky and sea.

It is a very easy walk but one of the more rewarding walks I have done, particularly so given the wonderful weather we had that day.
