Just flat out stunning! We hiked this trail in March, but caught a hint of wild flowers. Stark beauty every direction.

Less than hour away from dublin, so much worth going. Beautiful views, well marked path. Really relaxing!


This has been by far my most enjoyable hiking thus far. It was difficult until he beginning but as we came around the lake side it was truly a site to see!

Not 5 stars just because there is a substantial part of the walk on asphalt. Totally worth it, breathtaking views.

One of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen.

An easy scenic route for all ages.

Awesome hike! Perfect to see the many different aspect of Ireland's natural habitat. You'll start out going through a paved/gravel path through the mossy woods that takes you around to a mountain side trail with great views of the ocean/city. Don't forget to stop off at some of the burial sites along the way, especially the Ballyedmonduff Wedge Tomb. In order to get there you need to go off the loop trail and down the mountain a ways, but it's worth it when you get there. Lastly, when you get to the Fairy Castle peak, even the most skeptical of hikers would be satisfied. Following this rolling green mountain ridge is everything that people want to see in an Ireland hike. We got lucky while up there and had some fog roll in creating a really awesome and eerie environment. The hike took us about 6 hours, but could be done in 4-5 if you're an experienced hiker. We usually like to keep it casual and take in the views. Be sure to finish the hike before sundown. The last portion is on a really tight and windy road that's not well catered to hikers. Safety first! Cheers!

A tipical and beatiful walk for a Sunday afternoon. I realy love it when every thing is yellow by the whinbushes.

Easy to get to from Dublin. I took the DART from Connolly Station, about 30-35 minutes, and 6.15 Euro for a return. Not a bad deal. After enjoying the piers, walk to the end of the shops away from the station and follow the road uphill. You will eventually come to the start of the trail. You are in for spectacular views from the cliffs for about the next 2-3 miles. There is a treacherous path of old steps down to a secret beach close to the 5 mile point, but I'll say no more - It wouldn't be a secret then, would it? Just keep your eyes open for offshoot paths.

From the halfway point, the views are fewer as you move into the greenery, but lots of delicious wild blackberries to snack on as a consolation prize. When you turn inland, you should be keen to enjoy the woods, and crossing a road and a golf course. Past the golf course, the trail starts to get well worn again, and you're on the home stretch, through the neighborhoods of the village and down to the bus stop right across from the DART station.

Great hike, if a little boring at the end, but you could easily go the other way, and get the boring stuff over right away.


Loved this walk. Wasn't much of a hike except once into the island past the rope bridge there were some rocks to climb. But nonetheless an amazing place to wonder and explore. Some amazing panoramic views! So much to take in!

Very beautiful! Views were amazing!

A bit too easy and short and too many people on trail.

This path along the water was breathtaking. It's a fairly easy hike, very doable. It is mostly riddled with tourists but we'll worth the views overlooking the water and rope bridge.

Beautiful hike, and worth it to get away from the crowds. Be careful in the rain- steps can be slippery!

little walk with huge views.

Beautiful views from the top of the cliff. The lower trail is littered with tourists but if you take the higher trail further you can get away from all that.

Amazing geological formations!

The Giant's Causeway is well-worth seeing (and you don't have to pay the admission fee if you just walk straight past the visitors' centre). Walk on the rocks and really appreciate how incredibly weird they are. I highly recommend continuing on the trail. The 162 steps may seem like a lot, but you get a great view of the coast and you'll get to see the Causeway from directly above.

A beautiful scenic walk along the Antrim Coast and an exciting crossing of the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge. Highly recommend if you're in the area--one of my favorite parts of my trip to Northern Ireland.
