Not a difficult climb to the cliff tops. Views are breathtaking. A new parking lot and possible visitory center? is being built. Will be easier to park in the future since this natural wonder is finally being discovered. New and updated trails make for easier access for all.

These cliffs are amazing. A moderate walk brings you to stunning views. No expensive visitor centre so I it unspoilt and natural.

Looking from the crown of the cliff to the creamy surf below, we saw what we thought was a buoy. In fact, it was a boat! Our 2000 feet viewing height was to blame for our error. We saw gulls and falcons flying below us; hardy, grazing sheep whose wool would become Donegal tweed; and signal towers, now relics, standing... More

The Slieve League is certainly one of the most amazing places I had the chance to see in my life...if you are in Ireland and have more than two days scheduled, take a car and go for it. You won't regret it: the stunning view and the road to it will be worth every mile, euro and second spent. Words... More

I took in the amazing vista at Slieve League as part of a tour up around Donegal in September. Lady luck was shining on us and we had fabulous sunshine, which really highlighted the magesty of the whole area. Slightly off the main track, with a road I was very surprised my little car made it up, the cliffs easily... More

The road to get to Slieve League isn't for the faint of heart. As a driver, I found myself getting motion sick. Don't let that scare you though, Slieve League is beautiful and well worth every moment. It was a cloudy day when I went, so I couldn't see the top of the cliffs, but you could tell it was... More

Even if it was not the best day too visit the cliffs as it was a little fogy it was absolutely worth it! If you can walk, then leave the car and go there by foot. Views are unbelievable and breath taking! If you're in that area you just have to visit the Slieve League cliffs.
