love this walk great view on a clear day

The views are absolutely breathtaking. I had to keep stopping to take it all in!

What an amazing hike. Sheep, cattle & beautiful Irish country side on one side, Causeway cliffs & ocean view to the other side. Dunseverick castle is not exactly a castle, more like 3 small stone walls on a hill.

great hike. along the cliffs of the ocean almost the entire way. it might also be worth it to go to the role bridge. I recommend taking the bus to the end of your walk and walking back,because I had to stop before the bridge to be able to take the last bus back to my lodging.

Great trail. Almost all of it is along the top of the cliffs by the ocean. A stretch on a nice beach too. I would maybe look at also going to the rope bridge while on this hike. It is about a mile further, but is a popular site. I would recommend taking the bus to the destination and walking back to your lodging as busses end around 6. This caused me to have to cut the trip to just this hike and go back to see the rope bridge on another day.

great view of Belfast. quite windy at the top but added to the atmosphere.

Begin at the interpretive panel in the parking lot for Belfast Castle. At the first fork, turn right. After this, stick to your left.

I did not do this so I had to do the opposite. As a result if I hadn’t turned around at various points I would have missed the caves and Devil’s Punchbowl.

This is a great hike and is easily accessible from the city. You an catch a bus from the city centre to the castle, walk uphill along the road to the castle. At the top of the hill you will get some stunning views of the city, especially around the section of the hill known as Napoleon’s nose.

Lovely walk with lovely views. We did this from the second car park which shortened it somewhat, due to the weather forecast. I do think the categorization “hard” is definitely not the case. It’s moderate at worst. The step climb near the top is a little strenuous, but very doable.

My Family from age 10 to 50 enjoyed this fairly easy walk. A bit of a climb up steps at the end. Was part of a longer loop, but partly closed to preserve some flora and fauna. Great views on a good day. £5 for car park.

My husband and I completed this hike yesterday. There is a continuous gradual incline. It takes a while to reach the actual boardwalk. The steps are only the last 10 mins of the walk. It’s a good hike and I’d walked at a fast pace can be a good workout. The views from the top are nice but not spectacular. However we will definitely do it again.
Note: there is a €6 charge to park your car! I thought this was a bit steep considering most outdoor activities in Ireland are free. For this price I would expect a portaloo for the paying public.
