I highly recommend the Bray Head Loop Walk! You'll get fantastic views of the bay, cliffs, Skellig Islands. It was one of the highlights of my trip to Ireland!

Park your car (€2 daily rate) and walk up the hill to discover the most amazing views of the Kerry Cliffs. The walk forth and back takes about 1-1,5 hrs. Really worth it!
