This is a magnificient stop - very under appreciated in my opinion. There was hardly anyone at all here, we were able to enjoy the sites, being so close to the cliffs (unlike the Moher, which for safety they keep you far back). I believe,...More

We were taking a boat out to Skellig Michael so that was how we viewed Kerry Cliffs. They were large and impressive and were absolutely magnificent. We specifically took our nice camera out on the boat so we could capture those beautiful cliffs with the...More

Never got to see the Moher cliffs due to fog so I can't compare them, but the Kerry cliffs were spectacular. Definitely worth seeing. Half the fun is navigating the tiny roads to them.

This is a must visit in Kerry. Just as beautiful and possibly more beautiful than the cliffs of moher. Less well known so not crowded at all! We were almost the only ones here. Great pictures. Must walk up the hill. Small charge to visit....More

This was one of our favorite stops along our Ring Tour, the weather wasn't ideal but a great experience. Not nearly as touristy as the Cliffs of Moher.

One family member was disappointed when we were planning our trip that the Cliffs of Mohr was not on the itinerary. That disappointment vanished as we walked to the cliff from our car and we caught the first glimpse of the Kerry Cliffs. They are...More

the view from the cliff is breathtaking! The place has good guiding signs and photos.The path to the edge is short so it is worth stopping and visiting during visiting the ring of Kerry

Don’t miss the turnout for this very good short hike to spectacular views over the cliffs. It’s a great spot to see the Skellig Michael island in the distance where Luke Skywalker was reintroduced to Star Wars fans in The Last Jedi.

I was surprised there was a fee to visit here. Seemed like sufficient parking spaces. A short walk out to the cliffs. The views were incredible. You could see the Skellig islands. Some inclines to walk to the edges. It was very windy but sunny...More

I'm so glad someone told us to stop here; what a stunning view! These are smaller than the Cliffs of Moher, obviously, but they are also much less crowded, which allowed more time for reflection. There are also some model beehive huts on site, and...More

You are going to want to visit Kilkee if you are limited on walking. There are two really good viewing spots and one of them is in the parking lot itself and the other likely off limits to you due to a hike on uneven ground... More

Yes you can. Its a 40 min. walk one way to get to the cliffs. Just be aware that the road is very narrow and there is no sidewalk, so you have to be extra careful.
