  • Amazing area, see the waves crashing against dramatic rocks. Everyone focuses on the sea stack but be sure to explain the other cliffs nearby. Arguably more impressive than Cliffs of Moher as you are so close to the action. Close supervision of children and pets required as free to walk right up to the edge and warning signs of erosion near the edge. Free parking nearby.
  • Absolutely beautiful place, I can't believe I live 1 half hours away and have never been before. So enjoyable even on a very windy day like today. Well worth a visit
