Great cliffs and view right into the Atlantic. Unless it's glorious weather, prepare for a soaking :o) You get plenty of warning though as most rain comes in from the ocean. You can see it slowly approaching so normally gives you around 5-10 minutes notice. If this was in england, it would be packed out 24/7. This is much less... More

This is the most beautiful drive to the cliffs and lots of scenery to be enjoyed on the way. We parked in the second car park and walked up to the top. The cliffs are just as good as the cliffs of moher.I would highly recommend a visit

I love Slieve League. It is so breathtaking and the drive up is truly spectacular. Donegal is so grogeous. I also loved Connemara but to me Donegal is so perfect in every way and Slieve League is just amazing.

Don't miss going to Slieve League, the lesser known cliffs at Ireland's west coast, but compared to the more famous cliffs of Moher, Slieve League is not only higher, but a lot less touristic. Located near the little village of Teelin, about 60 km west of Donegal in Donegal county, these cliffs raise over 600 meters above the water, with... More

Whether you're walking on Slieve League from the top or seeing it from the boat below, it's impressive ! The walk to the summit is long and not for the faint-hearted, particularly in windy weather but going at least part of the way is well worthwhile. The boat trip is fun. We were with Paddy who is full of mischief... More

Go to the upper parking lot. Go early to avoid the crowds. Driving there is what most folk do, but it is even better if one cycles (which I did from our hostel in Malinbeg, on our second day). There is a hike up to the cliffs (which we didnt do). It looked worthwhile.

A great opportunity to see the west coast of Ireland. Even in misty weather, the walk is worth the trip. Good parking and updated trail. Unfortunately I stepped in dog poop in the parking lot and spent time trying to clean my shoes. I enjoyed the wonderful view of the cliffs but the smell of dog poop still lingers and... More

This was a wonderful boat tour. Paddy Byrne, the skipper, is a knowledgeable and a funny man who makes the tour exciting and fun. At 601 meters in height (1972 feet), the Slieve League is breathtaking. We even stopped for a swim at a great spot.

Visited Slieve League on a cloudy but dry day. Very well signposted from Killybegs but I would recommend to drive with caution as the road up to it is narrow with quite a few bends. Brought 3 children with us and they had a great time with a picnic at the tables available before hiking up to the top and... More
