Slieve League is known for being one of the highest cliffs in Europe. It is truly an impressive landscape. The trail provides an excellent opportunity for taking pictures and enjoying the views. The wind does pick up the higher you go though. We drove the narrow road to the top of the cliff, which is quite intimidating at first. If... More

Drove to the top car park to find wonderful views of the cliffs. Walked as far as the second cairn before loosing our nerve in the high winds and low cloud cover. We'll definitely go back on a clear day and walk along the whole way. Trek improvements are well underway.

It was my 3rd visit. Probably the last one for free, because there are some constriction works now. Looks like a visitor centre and parking. Views are breath taking. Remember to watch out for sheep’s running across the road all the time. Good view point. Great photo opportunity area. Worth to visit.

I climbed up the back of Slieve League which is the way to go as it takes you right up to the top and the view is simply breathtaking all the way up. A fab day out for family, friends or anyone. You will not be disappointed. Weather conditions need to be checked though as mist can descend rapidly I... More

Loved this place, lovely walks and stunning views. Best on a clear day but not necessary. Highly recommend a visit.

'Adventures in County Donegal' This past March 2014, I finally decided it was now or (maybe) never, and headed up to Co. Donegal, to tackle the Slieve League Cliffs. The drive itself was incredible, the changing landscape through Mayo & Sligo's, Ox Mountains, Benbulben, the Dartry Mountains, through Lietrim, into Donegal, the drive along the coastline, was stunning. I arrived... More

We took the very narrow road to the car park while they were having a vintage sports car rally. The car park was packed. A lonely left hand drive 1946 Hudson was parked at the bottom, knowing it was far too narrow for him to get up. We were there another time (good place to visit now and then) when... More

Access via car to top of cliffs although you can park at car park on bottom and walk up. Views were magnificent of Atlantic and cliffs with path leading on up to top if brave enough to venture. Note ensure you wear warm clothing as there is not much shelter at summit.

Incredible. Amazing. Beautiful. Couldn't say enough about the cliffs at slieve league. The drive up there is hairy enough but well worth it. The views are incredible. It isn't commercialised like the cliffs of moher but are equally impressive. Bring your coats and hats. It is always windy!! There is a lovely little coffee shop too on the way back... More
