Sadly it was a very misty day, when we visited...however we were still able to see the amazing colours along the cliffs. Truly magnificent, and makes one feel very small.

This world famous site boasts the highest cliffs in all of Europe. Unfortunately we were unable to see them due to the fog. Apparently fog is quite normal here, and although the day was expected to clear, we did not have the opportunity to wait it out. On the drive back we stopped at the local coffee and gift shop,...

We visited and see caught in a terrible downpour-and the cliffs were still absolutely beautiful! If you are anywhere within an hour drive, shame on you for not visiting! There was construction ongoing of a visitor's center, but a paved and gravel sidewalk was completed just across from the cliffs. Had the weather cooperated, we would have stayed and climbed... More

For those crazies, like us, that park near the gate, you can plan for weather changes, and a good 2km uphill workout. The few drivers that pass you on the way up, may have an easier time physically, but miss the scenery and have to skinny past those coming down and find roadside parking at the top. The cliffs are...

Just few people in the area. It is perfect to spend hours and hours enjoying the landscape. It is highly recommend going by walking to the area and enjoy the surrounding landscapes.

The drive up to the top is one of the best !!! Keep alert, there are some places to pull over to take pictures. The views are some of the best ever. You start in the town of Carrick and drive up. Follow the signs. Later on, without warning, there is one that points to the right. That is where... More

We visited here on a dry day in April - don't imagine it would be the same on a rainy day! Thanks to other reviewers on trip advisor we knew to keep driving until we got to the top. There were those who had stopped at the car park on the way up and had even further to walk. On... More

The drive up to the cliffs is exciting , followed by a short walk further on up with places to rest along the way.You will never find better views during such a short walk up a hillside- well worth it for the view !!

We have visited Slieve League on several occasions in the past few years and have always enjoyed the cliffs. The different colours catching in the sun make them very attractive. In the past few years we have seen an increase in the numbers of people and coach loads visiting. In response to this the road up and the path from... More
