The 750ft (214m) high striped stone extends south with its long fingers into County Cork and Kerry, and from O'Brien Tower those with a keen eye can even spot the Aran Islands to the north. When the surf fills the fresh air of the Wild Atlantic Way, it's hard not to feel like you're braving the sea from the prow of a majestic boat. To make the most of the magic, there's nothing like a windswept hike on a cliff whose edge rises slightly like waves rolling endlessly below. Try the Doolin Cliff Walk: it takes you on a full off the beaten path all the way to the informative visitor centre, nestled into the hillside like a hobbit house.Read More
