Unbelievable views from the top of these stunning cliffs. Small winding road takes you to a great vantage point where there are a couple of stalls selling gifts with an ice cream van. Should you be fit enough it is well worth following the path up to the summit for the additional breath taking views from the summit.

We went up to the top of the cliffs on an overcast day and disappeared into the clouds - fantastic!! When the weather cleared up a bit the views were breath taking. The cliffs are magnificent and what a drop! You can also drive quite a long way up - so that if you have difficulty walking you can still... More

Slieve League was amazing. We went on a rainy and cloudy day so we did not hike up it, but the view was still beautiful. If you are ever in this area, you should visit Slieve League.

This is the second time we have done the cliffs and they still left us feeling stunned. Views are amazing. We have a really sunny day which added to our enjoyment. Stayed on the cliffs for about an hour and half just sitting enjoying the view. Ice cream van just above top car park and the seller informed us that... More

Stunning view From Slieve League. not a cloud in the sky and no breeze. If your not into climbing hills you can drive to the car park and proceed from here. Unfortunately when we visited the toilet facilities were not finished and the porta loos had not been cleaned or emptied for days. With the amount of people who visit... More

Highest sea cliffs in Europe. Several hikings paths, also car access to a great vantage point. All you need to do is pray for a clear day! Some of the cutest sheep in Donegal.

If you are in Donegal please go to see this stunning location. Cliffs are breathtaking. There is 2 carparks at entrance & the walk up to cliffs is lovely with beautiful views, or you can also drive right up to the finish where there is also parking, a bit scary driving to it.

Its a bit scary to drive up to, but it is well worth the trouble. My boyfriend and I climbed as high and as far as we possibly could before we both got too scared. The views are absolutely incredeble. Not for the faint of heart... the wind was so strong it was pushing me around... I was thankful to... More

The road is narrow and can be difficult if you can see where you are going. In a dense fog, it is scary and dangerous. Note that if you see a closed gate, simply open it and shut it back again after your car goes through. At the lower parking area, we had hoped for rest rooms but had to... More

We were blessed with a wonderful day for our adventure up to the cliffs. The drive was actually only a wee bit scary, but then, I was a passenger. Great views! With far fewer tourists than cliffs in the south. In addition to the natural beauty that surrounded us, we felt that those that made the trek to to upper... More
