Doolin Cliff Walk Reviews
In September we had the fortune to meet with and walk the Cliffs with Pat Sweeney. Not only was he extraordinarily knowledgeable but he was a terrific communicator and a pleasure to hike with on a gor... more »

Once you leave your car in the large parking lot (for a fee) you walk a foot path that leads to the "visitor center" and, immediately after, continues on the right side of the cliff, soon opening up a panorama as great as indescribable. There is no photo to keep, also because the ocean that breaks on the rocks, as well as the low vegetation, constantly change shades of color and reflections, due to the strong wind that causes the clouds to chase each other and let the sun's rays filter constantly Movement. The walk lasts several hours on the left side, where you can get very close to the overhang (unrivalled experience).
We visited in March on a rainy day, but Pat still gave us a wonderful tour, telling us about his farm and how the walking trail was formed. The views were fantastic despite the rain! Pat even walked us through the visitor center while we waited for our ride back to Doolin. Since we had a small, 3-person group, we were able to move faster, though considering the muddy terrain we were quite out of breath (and we're in our 20's). Pat provides an exclusive cliff experience with views one wouldn't normally see. A great alternative to the much more touristy viewing area!
The most incredible walk of my life! More worth it than the cliffs oh Moher to be honest. The view on the walk is unbelievable. There are a couple of steep slopes but otherwise it's quite flat, so an easy trail. Google Maps suggests that we can walk from Doolin to the Cliffs of Moher in 1h30, but it's at least 2h. We did it in 3h because we kept stopping for the view and to take a few pictures. The most beautiful walk I've done
