One of the best short hikes in Ireland.

The route described by others is still the same and it's now way marked. Just to mention that there is now a car park which is a discovery point along the Wild Atlantic Way which is the start point and there is a two euro charge (Sorry Peter Walker) to park here but it is money well spent.
