This is an easy walk and well worth it. The air is bracing and the views are stunning. The day we walked there were lots of people doing the walk and everyone was friendly

Tiny fishing harbour with excellent walk along the coast. Only minutes from the famous Ballymalloe cookery school and shop. Worth a visit.
