The Cliffs are over 300m / 1,000 ft high. Expect raw, wild, magnificent scenery, with the jagged outline of Skellig Michael on the horizon rarely far from view.
Kerry Cliffs are widely accepted as the most spectacular cliffs in Kerry.
The cliffs stand over 1000ft above the wild Atlantic and were formed in a desert environment 400 million years ago. Out to the west stand the amazing Skellig Rocks one of only three UNESCO world heritage sites in Ireland. Of course the Kerry Cliffs are the closest viewing point to the great rocks and also the famous Puffin Island. Allied with these facts as you stand at the summit of this mystical place and breath in the freshest of air, deep in to your lungs from the wild Atlantic and observe this natural wonder. You can relax and unwind and observe the majestic views from here which reach out for 30 miles of the surrounding areas. Many Twitchers come here to us to enjoy and observe the thriving colonies of cliff birds.
Our cliffs here in Portmagee provide you the opportunity to enjoy this spectacular location in a safe and natural environment. We are located just off the Skellig ring in Portmagee and the cliffs are just a 10 minute walk from our entrance.
Allow a minimum of 1 hour for a visit to the Kerry Cliffs, many visitors spend a few hours relaxing and bird watching for many hours and even return the next day or another day during their vacation. It is recommended to stay overnight in the local village of Portmagee (Irelands top tourist town 2012) to make the most of your visit; to enjoy the local culture and traditional Irish music. Also, we would highly recommend you take a cruise to Skellig Michael which we can arrange for you.

We went on a tour of the Ring of Kerry and the Skellig Ring with Ann O’Dowd and stopped at the Kerry Cliffs. We had previously been at the Cliffs of Moher and the Slieve League. In our opinion, the Kerry Cliffs have them beat by a wide margin. I strongly recommend this site.
Skip Cliffs of Moher, Kerry Cliffs are where it’s at!
As many have already said, this was an accidental stumble upon experience. But even if it was planned, I’d go back in a heart beat. At my recommendation, a family member did the Kerry Cliffs, and then did the Cliffs of Moher because her travel companions just had to see it. They all agreed that because of the crowds it just wasn’t as charming as Kerry Cliffs. See Cliffs of Moher from pictures, but do Kerry Cliffs in person. And if you happen to stay the night in Port Magee, look up because it’s a Night Sky Preserve!
