Welcome to Loop Head Peninsula

On the northern side of the cliff near the point, a dramatic crevice has been cleaved into the coastal cliffs where you'll first hear and then see a teeming bird-breeding area. Guillemots, choughs and razorbills are among the squawkers nesting in the rocky niches.

A long hiking trail runs along the cliffs to the peninsula's main town, Kilkee. A handful of other tiny settlements dot the peninsula.
