The cliffs of Moher walking

A ramble around Loop Head takes in wildlife, history, geology, heritage, scenery and of course the obligatory stops to chat with the locals and enjoy a meal or a coffee. You can please yourself: either wander wherever the road and the mood take you, or try a guided walk led by a knowledgeable local chaperone.

Self-guided looped walks around Loop Head include Kilcredaun to Rinevella and back, taking in the drowned forest and the Kilcredaun lighthouse; the 15km Loop Head Lighthouse circuit; and any of several historical and scenic walks around Kilkee.

The Long Way Round Walking Company offers professional guided walks and hikes around the peninsula. Local guide Laura Foley’s schedule includes nature and birdwatching walks, historical town walks, and heritage walks, each approximately two hours long.

Alternatively, local artist and naturalist Carmel Madigan presents a variety of botanical and shoreline walks of Loop Head, exploring the peninsula’s hedgerows and the biodiversity of its shoreline.
