If you like walking along dramatic landscape than you came to the right place. I'll share with you 2 very nice locations which I have discovered (with some local help) where you can take a long walk.
You'll need a car, but it's so pretty that it is totally worth it.
"The Atlantic Coastal path from Ballycotton to Ballytrasna and on to Ballyandreen is part of the East Cork way. It is know as The Ballycotton Cliff Walk This beautiful cliff walk is rich in wildlife, which goes through farmland, then across a small tiny beach on the way its is 13 kms and takes 5 hours."

"The scenery is spectacular, on one side you have farmland, pasture and meadows and the other you have stunning view of Ballycotton lighthouse and the Wild Atlantic Coast. The single pathway is quiet narrow in places, with many styles and steps along its route, so it is not suitable for bikes or pushchairs. Wear good walking shoes or boots as it can be slippy in some areas after wet weather." (Source)
Ardmore Cliff Walk
"The approximately one-hour tour leads around Ardmore Head along a beautiful stretch of coastline. You can start your walk either from the Cliff House Hotel in Ardmore or in the opposite direction from the Ardmore Round Tower. The path leads through a graceful landscape past sacred springs, old lookout points and, of course, imposing cliffs." (Source)
"This is a unique 4km walk with beautiful sea scapes. Breathtaking views. Legends. Wildlife. Battle sites. And don't forget, it's simply smothered in Irish Heritage." (Source)
Do you spot the rainbow? :)
These 2 walks will boost your energy and appreciation for nature, so make sure to add them to your itinerary when around Cork
