Ballycotton Cliff Walk


Ballycotton is the hidden gem of East Cork. It is a small picturesque fishing village which sits on a rocky-ledge overlooking Ballycotton Bay and is surrounded by sandy beaches. Only 40 minutes from Cork airport and Cork City, Ballycotton is the perfect escape to the beautiful East Cork countryside.

During a stay in Ballycotton you can enjoy the freshest of fish served in award winning restaurants or from the local gluten free chippy straight from the boats in Ballycotton Harbour. You will receive a warm local welcome in our traditional pubs, there is live music in the village every weekend and the more energetic can enjoy our cliff side Pitch n Putt course or Ballycotton’s internationally acclaimed cliff walk.

Additional Information

The Cliff Walk is from Ballycotton village to Ballyandreen beach along a cliff track where you are flanked by meadows on one side and the ocean on the other. It starts at the end of Ballycotton village (at the y in the road take the right up the hill, the left takes you to the pier). The walk extends over 5 miles on a foot worn track along the cliff face with stunning views and passes Ballytrasna beach. There are many stiles to cross on the route (so not suitable for bikes or buggies).
