The Cliffs of Dooneen

You may travel far, far from your own native homeFar away o’er the mountains, far away o’er the foam

But of all the fine places that I’ve ever been

Sure there’s none can compare to the Cliffs of Dooneen

It’s a nice place to be on a fine summers day

Watching all the wild flowers that ne’er do decay

Oh the hares and the pheasants are plain to be seen

Making homes for their young round the Cliffs of Dooneen

Take a view o’er the mountains, many sights you’ll see there

You’ll see the high rocky mountains oe’r the west coast of Clare

Oh the towns of Kilkee and Kilrush can be seen

From the high rocky slopes round the Cliffs of Dooneen

Fare thee well to Duneen, fare thee well for a while

And to all the fine people I’m leavin’ behind

To the streams and the meadows where late I have been

And the high rocky slopes round the Cliffs of Dooneen

Ireland and it's history, culture, travel, tourism and more!
