Introducing Kilkee to Loop Head
While others are dodging sweater vendors at the Cliffs of Moher, come here for coastal views that in many ways are more dramatic.
The land from Kilkee south to Loop Head has subtle undulations that suddenly end in dramatic cliffs falling off into the Atlantic. It's a windswept place with timeless striations of old stone walls. You can see literally for miles and there is a rewarding sense of escape from the mainstream. It's good cycling country and offers coastal walks – which is just as well as there's no public transport.
