It’s a nice place to be on a fine summer’s day
Watching all the wild flowers that ne’er do decay
Oh, the hare and the pheasant are plain to be seen
Making homes for their young round 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 towns of Kilkee and Kilrush can be seen
From the high rocky slopes round the Cliffs of Dooneen

So fare thee well to Doonenn, fare thee well for a while
And although we are parted by the raging sea wild
Once again I will wander with my Irish colleen
Round the high rocky slopes of the Cliffs of Dooneen

[C]October winds lament around the [F]castle [G7]of Dro[C]more
Yet [Am]peace is in its [G7]lofty [C]halls, a [F]phais-de [G7]ban a [C]stor

Singing [F]hushabye, [G7]lul, lul, [C]lo, lo, lan, sing [F]hushabye, [G7]lul, lul, [C]loo

It’s a nice place to be on a fine summer’s day
Watching all the wild flowers that ne’er do decay
Oh, the hare and the pheasant are plain to be seen
Making homes for their young round 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 towns of Kilkee and Kilrush can be seen
From the high rocky slopes round the Cliffs of Dooneen

So fare thee well to Doonenn, fare thee well for a while
And although we are parted by the raging sea wild
Once again I will wander with my Irish colleen
Round the high rocky slopes of the Cliffs of Dooneen
