Ballyliffin has a variety of walks available, please click on one of the below for further details and maps. Ballyliffin – A walkers paradise Ballyliffin is well positioned to become a walker’s paradise for locals and visitors alike and this is reflected in the huge number of people taking to the highways and beaches of the country in recent years. We boast some of the most dramatic scenery anywhere in the country and taking to the hills, mountains and beaches or doing a gentler looped walk is an ideal way to get closer to nature and wildlife and to learn about our history. The beauty about these proposed walks is that all the community can take part regardless of age or ability. There is a walk proposed to suit everyone, and unlike other activities it costs nothing to take part but time and spans all seasons Designated Walks Coastal Walkway The local Development Group is constructing a purpose-built walkway from Pollan Beach to Carrickabrahy Castle in the Isle of Doagh. With the towering Donegal mountains on one side to the always-impressive North Atlantic Ocean on the other this is a great way to get the heart pumpimng and see our beautiful coastline.
