A wonderful walk with the most brilliant views on a clear day. Ascend by the Pilgrims Way then go along the ridge and back down by the more popular tourist route to the car par. An easy climb and a great days walking.

The parking is a bit tight but the views are amazing. There is also a hike up higher but we didn't take that option and had ice cream sold in the viewing area instead.

still an unspoilt, uncommercialised gem. there's a car park where walkers can start the trek up of which they have right of way over vehicles, but for the less able bodied you can drive the whole way (make sure your brakes work), it is single road at times and some shear drops but what wonderful views.

Amazing scenery, and great for exercise, if you walk from the lower carpark. The hill from the lower carpark is very steep, so if you're not pretty fit, let yourself through the gate and drive up. Well worth the visit :)

Don't walk up unless you are very fit. Take a car or coach from the town. Spectacular views. Try to do in good light and/or sunny. Mists can come in very suddenly up there.

We took our Canadian relatives to visit the cliffs at Slieve League while touring Donegal.. When we arrived there was a heavy Irish mizzle - this would be called rain and thick mist in any other country. It showed no sign of clearing so we went into Teelin for coffee and a scone. An hour later the weather had improved... More

Amazing views, rustic site. Still hard to get to via very narrow road so not yet overwhelmed with tour buses... Go visit soon as improvements are in the works, highly recommend a visit

It was nice to do this walk as my Dad and Husband Uncle have done the walk in the past, so did this in memory of them. Not an easy walk, three hours in total. Take a guide up if your doing Pilgrims Path Route.

The weather was not with us the day we went there but, even under clouds, it was astonishing. The combination between the sounds of the waves and the changing colours of the cliffs was amazing. Irish people do live in a magical place!

We recently followed the new red hiking path up and over the One Man's pass, going down via the Pilgrim's Path.You need two vehicles to do it this way, parking one at the Rusty or the coffee shop, Teelin. It takes a bit over four hours but is not too challenging if you have decent walking boots and a stick.... More
