song is in standard tuning, the way i hear it christy uses chordvariations while 
fingerpicking the song.
anyway, an easy overview over the chords used:

     G     C     F     Am
E    3     x     x     x
A    x     3     x     0
D    0     2     3     2
G    0     0     2     2
B    3     1     1     1
e    3     3     3     0

christy uses some variations on the high e-string and on the rute notes to make 
the song softer. i didnt figure them out, but i'm sure you can by just trying. ah 
and the song's in 3/4!

G                  C             F          G 
You may travel far far from your own native home
     C                           G            Am
Far away o'er the mountains far away o'er the foam
       C                        G         Am
But of all the fine places that I've ever seen,
        C                        F            G
There's none to compare with The Cliffs of Dooneen

G                   C           F                 G 
Take a view o'er the water fine sights you'll see there
               C                        G             Am
You'll see the high rocky slopes on the West coast of Clare
    C                   G              Am
The towns of Kilkee and Kilrush can be seen
         C                        F            G
From the high rocky slopes at The Cliffs of Dooneen

G                    C       F             G
It's a nice place to be on a fine Summer's day
         C                         G        Am
Watching all the wild flowers that ne'er do decay
    C                           G           Am
The hare and lofty pheasant are plain to be seen
       C                               F            G
Making homes for their young round The Cliffs of Dooneen

G                    C              F          G
Fare thee well to Dooneen fare thee well for a while
       C                       G         Am
And to all the fine people I'm leaving behind
       C                             G           Am
To the streams and the meadows where late I have been
        C                        F            G
And the high rocky slopes of The Cliffs of Dooneen

have fun with that great song :)
