Nice walk, bit of a scramble in places but fantastic views to the sea and beyond. (forgot to turn off GPS she driving to Cork)

Absolutely stunning. As a novice hiker, this was definitely the scariest hike I have ever done. Very dangerous with the rock climbing. I couldn't have done it without help. The view was spectacular and very lightly trafficked.

It was great

Hard but doable (for novice hiker like myself). You need good boots and preferably long trousers. Awesome views. Some climbing. Loose rocks in some places. Nice path along the cliff. Not children or dog friendly I think. Went early morning (6am) so no traffic at that time.

Great hike! Amazing views! Harder and scarier than I had expected and I’m a pretty seasoned hiker from the Rockies. There was one place that was full on climbing the rock face, I was by myself and stopped to wait for people as it felt pretty unsafe. Other than that, it’s brilliant! Hard up and down, definitely stop off at the lake!

Good parking facilities. Took about 2 hours to get to top with a few stops. Challenging at times but one of the better ones around Munster

Steep and tiring, but the view makes it all worthwhile. Be prepared for a lot of mud! They’re also sheep just hanging out and grazing throughout the entire hike, which is pretty neat! Would love to come back and do this in the summer, I’d take a dip in the lake (it was too cold this time of year)!
