Looped Walks – Cliff Coast

Share This Article

Sweeping dramatically from Galway Bay, through rugged Clare and into mountainous north Kerry, the Cliff Coast is home to some of Ireland’s stirring and diverse landscapes. From the Burren, a vast limestone pavement rich with rare flora, to the majestic cliff-tops that make up county Clare’s jagged coast, this region’s stark scenery will take your breath away. It’s also home to the Cliffs of Moher, an awe-inspiring stretch of cliffside that towers 200m over the crashing Atlantic.

Unsurprisingly, the Cliff Coast’s looped walks offer a fantastic opportunity to explore this wild and rugged terrain. The clue is in the name! Let the elements blow away the cobwebs as you venture out to the majestic lighthouse on the Loop Head walk, where the lighthouse has guided ships to safety since 1670. On the Black Head Loop, weave through the valleys of Clare’s soaring clifftops or take in Fanore’s golden sandy beach and haunting landscape of the Burren on the Caher Valley Looped Walk.      
These are just some of the looped walks waiting to be explored along the Wild Atlantic Way’s Cliff Coast. For a full list of all walks available in every region, click here. What’s more, our handy trip planner will help you put together the itinerary that’s right for you.
