You may travel afar from your own native home

Faraway o'er the mountain, faraway 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

On the west coast of Clare

Oh the town of Kilkeen and Kilrush can be seen

From the high rocky slopes

Of 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

The hare and lofty pheasant are quite plain to be seen

Building 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
