The weather was not with us the day we went there but, even under clouds, it was astonishing. The combination between the sounds of the waves and the changing colours of the cliffs was amazing. Irish people do live in a magical place!

We recently followed the new red hiking path up and over the One Man's pass, going down via the Pilgrim's Path.You need two vehicles to do it this way, parking one at the Rusty or the coffee shop, Teelin. It takes a bit over four hours but is not too challenging if you have decent walking boots and a stick.... More

We enjoy bringing all of our visitors to Donegal out to see the cliffs at Sleabh Leag. It makes a great attraction for (relatively mobile) families. The drive out from Teelin is lovely (and at times entertaining as it appears that you drive through people's gardens!) There is parking which allows you to ditch the car and walk up the... More

Fantastic views both out to sea and back across the cliffs. Well worth either the drive or the walk up along the Pilgrims Path. You are allowed to go through the gate and drive up to the top where there is a car parking area together with ice cream van and souvenir shop. Once at the top you can take... More

There is a hairy, short drive just before the first car park. You can get out and walk, about 40 mins up, the same back, plus viewing time. Or you can drive. Remember to close the gate. Then say a prayer. First minute is ok. Then the hairy part. Winding road, room for two cars to pass, except as you... More

We were two full days in Carrick, at the Slieve League Lodge, and went hiking the Slieve League two times! It was incredible. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking. We started from Carrick, walked through Teelin (40 min) and then started the Pilgrim's Path that takes you to the summit. Then you can go to the One Man's Pass at your... More

Husband and I, both mid-50's, loved this activity. The hike to the top and back down took us 3 hours, with a few breaks for photos and rest. The first half of the hike is easy, the second half challenging. The views a along the way are lovely, but it is the view from the top that makes the hike... More

You can stop at the first parking (it has a gate, usually closed) and walk the road up to the cliffs parking. Or you can open the gate, drive through and close it behind you.Take the winding breath-taking view road up to the parking at the cliffs. Plenty of room to turn around at the upper lot. There is a...

Not since our explorations of hidden Machu Pichu in Peru’s High Andes have we been so impressed by wild sea cliff splendor. Atlantic mists roll in like ghosts from primeval past when Celtic gods and Irish kings wandered these forbidding lands. Seas crash in, ceaselessly wearing at the most ancient bedrock on the planet - Dalradian Rocks - found too... More
