These beauties offer spectacular views of The Skellig Islands, Valentia Island, Portmagee Harbour and the Dingle Peninsula.

Along the famous Ring of Kerry drive, you’ll come across the extremely underrated Kerry Cliffs.  They are over 400 million years old and stand 1,000 feet above The Wild Atlantic.  

Like so much of our trip to Ireland it was a torrential downpour when we were here.  We were the only people at the cliffs.  We walked around for less than an hour as we had literally never been more wet in our lives (note: wear waterproof clothing when in Ireland!) and the wind was roaring.   

-All kinds of Cliff Birds to admire

-Bathrooms

-Easy parking 

-4 euro entrance fee per person

Someday I hope to come back here and camp overnight.  I can only imagine falling asleep to the crashing waves of The Wild Atlantic and then waking up to that view.
