Pat Sweeney – Doolin Cliff Walk

Doolin Cliff Walk


Join Pat Sweeney on a guided walk along the sea cliffs from Doolin to the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Centre, for a unique experience of the breathtaking rural beauty of this part of the World. With the green fields of the local farmers on one side and the pounding waves of the Atlantic Ocean on the other, this spectacular walk, led by one of these local farmers is a must if you are visiting the west coast of Ireland along The Wild Atlantic Way. Pat is a local historian and walking enthusiast, an expert on local history and folklore and is passionate about the preservation of a rural lifestyle enjoyed by five generations of his family who have farmed in this area.

The walk takes approximately 4 hours along a gravel path and finishes at the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Centre where public transport is available for your return to Doolin. The walk is easy, always with the sound of the ocean in your ears, for approximately 8km along the coast and also crosses two sections of Pat’s farm along the way. Visitors will have the privilage of seeing the natural beauty of the area and hearing an interpretation of past and present life from the perspective of a guide who has an enthusiasm and passion for the locality.
