First I thought it was a bit pricey just to see some views, but at 5 euro per car, not per person, it turned out to be worth it. There are several viewpoints and lots of information signs.

This is a fabulous Cliff walk with magnificent views, can't believe I'd never heard of it, well worth a visit while on Valentia. You have to pay 5 euro per car but it is worth it. So peaceful, with great views of the Skelligs

This place is an absolute gem. Big portion of the West Coast can be seen. Many main Valencia sites can be seen too. Theres a small fee at the entrance but totally worth. Can get breezy at the top!

If you enjoy easy to moderate hiking and breathtaking scenery you must explore Valencia (Valentia) Island. We were impressed by Geokaun Mountain and Fogher Cliffs. Skip St. Brendan's well. The farmer closed the last part of the road when we tried to drive there.
