Pat Sweeney – Doolin Cliff Walks
Pat Sweeney and his family have been farming in this area of Doolin for five generations. He displays a wealth of local knowledge from history to folklore, to wildlife and geology.
He knows the best views, the best places to see rare flowers, birds and wildlife and his appreciation and respect for local characters and stories makes him an excellent resource.
Pat has been involved from the commencement of the Doolin Cliff Walk, in 2007, assisting with the negotiations with securing access with the 39 farmers whose lands the trail had to cross. It was his experience of this spectacular route and his natural enthusiasm to share the experience of this unique walking trail that led him to the development of the tourism product Doolin Cliff Walk. His passion and knowledge of the locality can be translated into a guided walk, which will greatly enhance any walker’s experience at the new coastal walking trail.
