BROMORE CLIFF WALKS
Bromore’s sheer 180 foot cliffs have been sculpted by nature for thousands of years. Winter storms and the Wild Atlantic have formed headlands and bays and carved deep caves at sea level some of which later progressed to become arches and sea stacks.
Minerals seeping through the layers of flagstone that form Bromore Cliffs give them their ever changing colours. For tours and information SEE HERE
