Absolutely stunning views! The day we visited (February) the sun was out and it was very mild. We started to walk from the car park at the bottom but then realised you can open the gate and drive to the top!! It's an windy drive on a thin road but it is well worth it. If you are planning to...

The Cliffs of Moher are beautiful, but these are even better -- higher, wilder, and more scenic. If you're leery of heights, the drive up can be a bit harrowing, but it's not too bad. Just make sure you don't go beyond the boundary at the lookout. If you mis-step, you're a goner. It's worth the drive to get here!

We had to walk ages until we reached the top, but we were so glad that we made it! They say it's the highest costal peak in Europe. I'm not sure but the view was extraordinary! Make sure you have good climbing boots because it's windy and it sheer.

It was a very high altitude, and the drive up there made me a little nervous.....but so glad we did it! Once I was able to feel "grounded" it was so lovely. Don't miss this one!

We recently stayed in Killybegs for 3 nights and one of the highlights of our short trip was a trek up Slieve League with the dogs. We parked in the upper car park and enjoyed a walk up to the second viewpoint. I believe there is one more point that we didn't make it to and I look forward to... More

If you're anywhere near Donegal, this is well worth a look. There's a hike you can do uphill and around the top of the cliffs, just be careful on a windy day. It was absolutely freezing when I visited in June, but well worth it.

We left the car at the carpark before the crossbar and walked all the way only to find out we could have passed and continued by car until the carpark at the cliffs. But no complaints, the weather was fine at that moment and the walk of an hour or so led us through a beautiful scenery along the coast... More

One of our favorite spots. The best coffee and scones - hands down! The views were incredible. Shades of green against a misty sky. Great for climbing!

Along with the Cliffs of Moher, this is another natural beauty worth visiting. Ireland is a feast for the eyes with all its majestic natural wonders.
