For quite some time I have wanted to visit Slieve League. So on my visit to Donegal this was top of my list. There are two parking areas - one at the viewing area and a second a couple of km back from the viewing area. We left our car at the further car park and walked the 30 minute... More

Slieve League offers magnificent views of the majestic high cliffs. The Donegal Tours bus that took me there was able to drive us to the starting point of an exciting stairway to heaven. There were only two vendors up there: an ice cream guy and a sweater/toque/scarf guy, both offering locally produced fare. I rewarded myself for a 'scary' stair... More

The Slieve League cliffs are absolutely breathtaking and worth the rather harrowing drive (if you are an American and not used to driving on the left) along the "Wild Atlantic Way". We were blessed with chamber of commerce clear blue skies, but even if the weather is hazy or cloudy, just go and see this amazing sight. It is even... More

I got to approx. 1200 ft. The view of the Atlantic crashing on the cliffs is breathtaking. There is a kiosk selling a few Irish wares like scarves & another selling drinks. Very unspoiled natural place. It is beautiful to see.

A wonderful Irish coastal experience that easily rivals (surpasses?) The Cliffs of Moher. The drive out to Slieve League is wonderful in itself. We stopped at the little tea room/souvenir shop as you head up the hill and got a tip from the driver of their shuttle; you can either park at the bottom of the cliffs in a parking... More

Well worth the effort to see the cliffs, particularly on a nice day. There is a car park at the bottom but you can drive up relatively easily although slowly. There is parking at the top viewing point also. Walk up takes about 20 minutes

We went here with Donegal Tours. The cliffs are amazing. I agree it tops the Cliffs of Moher. Even though it rained a bit before we got there, the rain had stopped. It was cool to see the clouds make shadows on the cliff. I was disappointed that I did not get to see the falcons but the view was... More

Take the drive up to the car park, dont get out, but open the gate and drive another mile to the car park at the summit. You can the. Walk up even further if you want to, the views from 10 minutes up the path are even better.

For all the talk about the cliffs of Moher, this place puts it to shame. You can park your car at the bottom of the hill, and walk up to the 'viewing point', or drive up there. Views are breathtaking of the cliffs, and if you like hill walking you can trek to the top of the hill, over the... More
