Kerry Cliffs

Cliffs of Portmagee

Kerry's most spectacular cliffs are a mere 10-minute walk from Blasket View House on the Skellig Ring road, just a mile from Portmagee. The 300m cliffs, formed by a desert environment 400 million years ago, offer fine views of Blasket Islands and are the nearest viewing point of Skellig Rock and Puffin Island. Twitchers come here to observe the thriving colonies of cliff birds. Here too are replica stone beehive huts, similar to those on Skellig Michael. For good measure you can relax in the indoor/outdoor coffee shop while drinking in the marvellous panorama. Boat trips to Skellig Rock can be arranged.
