I went up on a clear evening when the sun was setting amazing views , a walk up the cliffs & standing on the viewing platform is a must.

Most of people when talking about Ireland would refer to the Cliffs of Moher as main attraction. So many movies feature them but I dare them to come and see Slieve League. Truly wild and breathtaking the cliffs are worth the hour trip from Donegal. There was a construction site on the way to make a better road and a... More

Hadn't been to Slieve League in over 30 years and was really impressed with how it has been developed without damaging any of its charm or beauty. We began our visit with good coffee and scones in the cottage at the bottom of the road before we drove to the top, still an exciting drive but not as scary as... More

Wasn't sure anything could beat the cliffs of Moher but this place came extremely close. It was well worth the hair raising drive to see it. Not full of tourists or buses. Recommend to anyone

Never seen the cliffs of moher but these are well worth seeing. As other people have said, the drive to the top is worth it as its a decent little uphill walk from the bottom car park. It's well maintained and nice paths and viewing points and there are stone steps up to a higher viewing point also. It was... More

Coming here was recommended by the place that we were staying at, and even though it was a bit of a drive, it was worth it! The views are amazing, and you will not be disappointed once you step out of the car!

The view from the lookout point and from the short walk higher is amazing! I drove to the top car park easily, you just need to be careful and drive slowly. The only pity was the bad weather. Be prepared for strong winds.
