The Atlantic ocean and Sliabh Liag mountain have been battling here for millions of years. The resulting seacliffs are 600m high and provide epic views that will not be forgotten by those who see them. You can hike to the top of sliabh liag, along a path that skirts the clifftops. Hiking boots/shoes and appropriate clothing are highly recommended. The... More

If your looking for a nice hike then this is the place. A beautiful not to strenuous hike along the coast and up a small cliff side. If it is rainning dress well as the wind really blows in. There is a car park below or you can drive all the way up to the cliffs. Be carefull as zhe... More

This was a place that I didn't intend to miss, in spite of low cloud and rain. However, a 'window' in the clouds made it possible to climb to the summit -well worth the effort, although there is a much longer walk that I would have done on a fine day.

I have read a lot of different opinions before travelling to Slieve League. Some said that you shouldn't go there if you have seen the Cliffs of Moher because Slieve League is not as impressive. So I was very interested in seeing if these opinions were right. After arriving at a quite new car park we had to walk thourgh... More

Slieve League is actually the name of a 2,000 foot high mountain but the cliffs which fall away from the mountain into the Atlantic are the highest in Europe. In very rough terms there are between twice and three times the size of those at Moher. The only sensible way to reach the cliffs is via the small road which... More

Arrive early and drive through the lower car park right to the top as far as the road goes. Park there and explore the views from the well built tracks at the lower level ( wheelchair access too). The paths up to the top are being improved with an accessible walk for most to the higher levels. Lots of kids... More
