You may travel far far from your own native home

Far away oer the mountains far away oer the foam

But of all the fine places that I've ever seen,

There's none to compare with The Cliffs of Dooneen


Take a view oer the water fine sights you'll see there

You'll see the high rocky slopes on the West coast of Clare

The towns of Kilrush and Kilkee can be seen

From the high rocky slopes at The Cliffs of Dooneen


Its a nice place to be on a fine Summer's day

Watching all the wild flowers that ne'er do decay

The hare and lofty pheasant are plain to be seen

Making homes for their young round The Cliffs of Dooneen


Fare thee well to Dooneen fare thee well for a while

And to all the fine people I'm leaving behind

To the streams and the meadows where late I have been

And the high rocky slopes of The Cliffs of Dooneen
