On The QT

Ballycotton Cliff Walk

A few weeks ago, OnTheQT decided to try something as a group together! We decided to do the Ballycotton Cliff Walk which is situated in a beautiful seaside town in Co.Cork. It is only about 30 minutes from Cork City and it is almost as if you enter a world of relaxation. Ballycotton village is well known as a fishing village and looks over Ballycotton Bay and the sandy beach which reaches Knochadoon head. The town is buzzing in the holiday season with fishing, walks, mini golf and of course summer ice-creams!


The team headed off through the foot worn track along the cliff (all secured with fencing), admiring the views that surrounded us. It was a dry, pleasant day and the sun was out for our little walk but still we remembered we were in Ireland with the fresh wind that hit our faces as we walked. We were well wrapped up and didn’t let the wind stop us reaching the end! The walk is 5 miles of cliff to the beach in Ballytrasna but the worn foot path keeps your attention throughout with unbelievable views, wildlife and friendly faces walking past. It was great to see families doing the walk together, a great place for little adventurers to burn off some energy exploring the paths, fields and surroundings!


The Cliff Walk is known for its spectacular scenery, wildlife and the OnTheQT team can definitely agree. This breath taking coastal walk, with the blue sky, fresh winds and amazing wildlife was just a great way to spend a day.


A great OnTheQT bonding experience in the fresh air!

    1. No Bruce! It’s free to go on this walk and it’s beautiful! The best things in life are free 🙂

  2. Is it suitable for Kids? (10 & 12 year olds) also is it 5 miles in total or a 10 mile round trip?
