fantastic views, well worth a visit even on a not so nice day, there is two car parks one at the bottom which means you have a 10/15 walk up or you can park right at the cliffs, though this car park is so small i can imagine you wouldnt get parked here peak season.

Fantastic sights and a look out point accessible and easy to get to for those not able to walk far. For those wanting a hike to see the view from "One Man's Pass," it's one of the very best! If you're lucky, you'll catch a tasty ice cream cone from the vendor shack.

If you're in Donegal you can't miss this. If you don't want to walk from the bottom car park, you can open the gate and drive to the next car park. It was bright but cloudy the day we went. I'd love to go again on a clear day.

We drove out here and it was really worth it. The road up is quite narrow and wind-y but perfectly navigable. We parked in the car park and walked the 2km up to the cliff. It wasn't too taxing. The cliffs themselves are awesome. Very serene and peaceful, not loaded with tourists like the Cliffs of Moher.

The views were amazing from all directions. It's quite a climb to the peaks but well worth the effort.

Spectacular scenery - among the highest cliffs in Europe, and there is a track/steps you can take from the car park which leads towards the upper reaches.

An excellent site to visit with some breath taking views of some magnificent sea cliffs. I had been here several times before - brought my young family here this time - they were all in awe of the cliffs and wildlife.

This is a must see well worth a visit. It was my first time to Slieve league. The weather was fantastic which helped. It's worth remembering the car park on the way up is a long way away from the top and it's a steep walk you can drive up to the top as I found out later. I am... More

We had seen the cliffs of Moher previously, but this visit was so much more enjoyable! Here there is no parking fee, no crowd, no visitor center, no crafts shop (except a small van at the top), just you and nature... There is a first parking where most people park and walk to the main observation point, but it's a... More

Liked the view when we reached the summit, but the climb up was difficult. The view was spectacular when we reached the destination. Take a raincoat with you.
