Amazing views. Go though the first gate and close it. You can park your car and walk up to it, or drive up to it. Beautiful views from either side.

Loved the beautiful views. Obviously it's very blustery at the top so you need warm clothing but the scenery is beautiful. There's a lovely craft shop/cafe on the road up with excellent home baking. Well worth a stop, unfortunately I can't remember the name of it.

drove up to second car park after going thru gate, don't forget to close it. The views are the cliffs are as good, if not better than cliffs of mohr. The walk up to top can be very slippery, especially on way down. Good hiking shoes ( and maybe a walking stick) needed. Watch the wind, we were there on... More

Went here when we had friends from Manchester staying with us. Let me tell you the road up is scary. We thought we were never going to reach the top. But boy was it worth it. Specular views like we have never seen before. On our way down we witnessed American tourists had misjudged the narrow road and ended up... More

This is an establishment you must see if visiting Ireland. Natural, undisturbed beauty! Tip, use the toilet before you go...there is not one there!

Take your walking boots & a picnic. Fabulous scenary. Looks like they will be charging for entrance in the summer so get there now. Parking area at top and suitable for disabled around the carpark area but beyond that, forget it. Be sure footed and reasonably fit. The walk to top around the cliffs is amazing.

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.
