What an incredible spot! It IS a climb, but not too steep.....just keeps going for a bit. Once up there, it's the views that make this place so amazing! The dramatic, steep cliff drops straight down to the water. This is the view I always...More

Bit of a walk up from the visitor centre but well worth it. We cycled up by 10am and had the place to ourselves!

Stunning views, terrifying cliff, great history! This is a must see. If you visit Ireland this should be on your top five spots to see.

Well worth a visit. Spectacular views and great food nearby. Bit of a walk from the visitors center and may not be suitable for people with restricted mobility. Expect about 20 mins walk each way but we’ll worth it.
