  2. The Gobbins Path is an arduous trek that is often narrow and uneven, accessed by a very steep pathway.
  3. A good level of fitness is needed – you must be fit enough to climb 50 flights of stairs and walk a very steep 1 in 5 gradient.
  4. Suitable outdoor clothing (including a waterproof jacket) and walking boots or shoes are essential.
  5. The route is so narrow in places that no bags or walking poles can be taken along – there are lockers to leave valuables, bags and personal items.
  6. Cameras can be taken along, but not camera bags.

Please see The Gobbins Cliff Path website for more details, for a map and directions.
