Well worth the drive to see the cliffs. The road to get to them is a bit of an adventure in itself, especially as you get closer to the first car park. I say first car park because like other have mentioned you will see...More

Picturesque drive to the cliffs and well signposted. The gate at the top of the car park can be opened so you can drive on up to the viewpoint. The road is narrow and twisty but there are some passing points if you meet traffic....More

What an under-appreciated wonder are the cliffs of Slieve League. It is worth the effort to get out to them to behold their glory for yourself. We had no problem parking (in the second, upper parking lot that many reviewers have mentioned). Once there we...More

As others have noted, the first carpark that you encounter is not the only one; the closed gate going up the mountain makes it look as if you have to park and walk, but that's not the case, and it's a pretty long walk up!...More

If you go you can drive nearly to the top. We didn’t realise this and walked uphill for 4 kms before we found the car park. While the walk to and fro was ok I could have walked to the very top if I had...More

Several reviewers have noted that there is a lower and an upper car park. My wife was not aware of this and when I asked her to jump out and open the gate, she thought me stark raving mad. She thought we were entering some...More

We parked at the bottom in the car park near the bathrooms and walked up. Some people drove to the top, but then they missed all the amazing scenery along the way. Beautiful views of cliffs into the sea, glacial ponds, incredible terrain. This was...More

We visited recently, and enjoy the spectacular views of the cliffs, and also the views across to Sligo. We parked in the car park, but many others drove on the narrow road further, up as far as the cliff viewing point. It is a narrow,...More

We hiked up Slieve League with a guide but if visibility is ok you can also do it alone. We heard of some people getting lost on the top with poor visibility. There are two ways up, one along the sea, where you have to...More

Our visit to Slieve League was amazing. You can drive your car to the upper parking lot but we chose to walk. We would have missed some incredible views otherwise. The view from just above the upper parking area was breathtaking. I could have stayed...More

Yes, but I wouldn't want to do that climb with on. Once you get to the upper parking lot you couldn't use it to get any further.

You can probably do it from Donegal. That is a large enough town to base from, while still being small. We stopped in Killybegs, which is between Donegal and Slieve League, and we were able to do both from there.
