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

The Slieve League is certainly one of the most amazing places I had the chance to see in my life...if you are in Ireland and have more than two days scheduled, take a car and go for it. You won't regret it: the stunning view and the road to it will be worth every mile, euro and second spent. Words... More

I took in the amazing vista at Slieve League as part of a tour up around Donegal in September. Lady luck was shining on us and we had fabulous sunshine, which really highlighted the magesty of the whole area. Slightly off the main track, with a road I was very surprised my little car made it up, the cliffs easily... More

The road to get to Slieve League isn't for the faint of heart. As a driver, I found myself getting motion sick. Don't let that scare you though, Slieve League is beautiful and well worth every moment. It was a cloudy day when I went, so I couldn't see the top of the cliffs, but you could tell it was... More

Even if it was not the best day too visit the cliffs as it was a little fogy it was absolutely worth it! If you can walk, then leave the car and go there by foot. Views are unbelievable and breath taking! If you're in that area you just have to visit the Slieve League cliffs.

The cliffs at Slieve League are terrific but the path is difficult to follow and currently in a state of repair/construction. Their are bags of rocks along the path and it is very muddy. A nice challenge though if you are a regular hiker.

These cliffs are definitely bigger than Moher though less steep. You can walk all the way to the top of them and enjoy the scenery. I went around sunset so it was truly gorgeous.

While visiting Donegal, a stop at Slieve League is a must. The view point is very well set up and you can make the most of the view and soak up the incredible atmosphere of the site. For people that are not afraid of heights, this is a great point to start an amazing walk.
