Windy place but amazing view and romantic place. A Perfect stop for incredibles pictures. Not far from nice restaurants and tipical villages.

We were staying in Killybegs so the journey to the cliffs took less than 30 minutes. The car park is being done up, but we drove past it along the narrow road up to the car park where the cliffs are visible. It would take forever to walk along the road so don't be afraid to drive up. It was... More

This place was fantastic. The cliffs here are said to be 3 times higher than the more famous cliffs of Mohr. I took a short hike up the hill and took several pictures...This was defiantly one of the prettiest places in Ireland...and much more remote.

On our return trip to Slieve League, we had poor weather but enjoyed the trip. Improvements are underway on the road in to the site and the pathway up the mountain. Only able to get 1/3 of the way up because of low clouds but still a wonderful visit. Trek up the hill is challenging.

There are so many amazing and spectacular sites in the north-west Irish county of Donegal that it's difficult to pick out one above the rest. And actually there is no need to. But in saying that a visit to Donegal without a trip to the soaring cliffs of Slieve League is like fish without chips. You can pretty much drive... More

Not a difficult climb to the cliff tops. Views are breathtaking. A new parking lot and possible visitory center? is being built. Will be easier to park in the future since this natural wonder is finally being discovered. New and updated trails make for easier access for all.

These cliffs are amazing. A moderate walk brings you to stunning views. No expensive visitor centre so I it unspoilt and natural.

We were traveling with elderly friends & had been told we could drive all the way to the top after opening a farm gate at the end of the main road at the bottom of the hill..... we were glad we did that..... it was an interesting trip up & down.... on a narrow one track road..... but it was...

Looking from the crown of the cliff to the creamy surf below, we saw what we thought was a buoy. In fact, it was a boat! Our 2000 feet viewing height was to blame for our error. We saw gulls and falcons flying below us; hardy, grazing sheep whose wool would become Donegal tweed; and signal towers, now relics, standing... More
