You may travel far, far from your own native home Far away o'er the mountains, far away o'er the foam But of all the fine places that I've ever seen Sure there's none can compare with the Cliffs of Dooneen
Take a view o'er the mountains, fine sights you'll see there You'll see the high rocky mountains o'er the west coast of Clare And the towns of Kilkee and Kilrush can be seen From the high rocky slopes round the Cliffs of Dooneen
It's a nice place to be on a fine summer's day Watching all the wild flowers that ne'er do decay And 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 round the Cliffs of Dooneen.
