Advice right up front: As you drive in, you'll come to a parking lot about 3 miles outside of Carrick. The road will end at what appears to be a cattle gate. However, if you're driving a car (not a truck or RV) DON'T park here, unless you want a curvy, uphill, 1-mile hike! Push the gate open and drive through, remembering to close the gate behind you. About a mile up the road, there is another parking lot. The gate is simply to keep trucks and RVs off the top part of the road. (When you leave, remember to close the gate also.)
Further advice: dress warmly, and be prepared for WIND! I can't say that's it's windy there all the time, but the wind was sustained at about 20-25mph the day we were there, with gusts to 30-40mph.
Really easy directions: turn south at the Slieve League Lodge (don't stay here, see separate review) in Carrick. This will be Teelin Road. Drive about 1.7 miles, and you'll see "The Rusty" on the left-hand side. Take your next right. Follow this road until you're there, remembering to go...through the gate.
Now, on to the actual review: this was a pretty cool site to see. People like to compare/contrast these with the Cliffs of Moher, but personally, I don't think you can compare the two. If you have time, see both!
The views from these cliffs are spectacular, and well worth a visit. The waves pound the coast and provide awesome contrast to the green/brown hills and cliffs, the blue-green water, and white waves and foam created! You'll see from my pictures that we were there on an overcast day, and I can only imagine the colors on a bright, sunny day! Unfortunately, a few pictures don't do this place justice.
