You can walk to the top if u have an extra 30 min but it is not necessary you just open the gate and drive up . If u plan to hike be prepared for hiking - 4+ hrs. We were their on a sunny, windy day dress appropriately. Brenda

“Great vistas and a nice mountain hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

To find the route to Slieve League, you need careful planning. But the prior planning is greatly rewarded. While some guides suggest that the road from the first car park is too narrow to travel safely, this is not so. Drive up to the second car park being careful to avoid sheep that may wander across the one to one and a half lane road. The view from the parking lot is fantastic but the hike to the higher levels, while a bit challenging, is worth the effort. And the view from the higher areas back toward Donegal Bay is stunning as well.

“Views worth the effort.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

These spectacular cliffs are worth the effort to drive to. The roads are narrow and fairly well signed. At the first parking area do not hesitate to open the closed gate - it is to keep the sheep in - but close it after you. We parked and began walking but fortunately were told to drive on, it is still a distance from the top.

“Worth the trip!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

Went to see the cliffs from above yesterday, and decided last minute to take the boat ride on the Nuala Star with Paddy Byrne.

What a blast! He had us laughing from the time we stepped aboard.

Highly recommended! You may even get lucky and see the jumping tuna...what a sight!

Thank you, thank you, thank you Paddy!!

“Paddy Byrne - Nuala Star boat ride to the cliffs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

A great boat ride and fantastic scenery with a old salt, Paddy Byrne. Paddy is funny and informative. Well worth the trip to Teelin for the boat ride. The cliffs are beautiful from above and below. Don't miss it.
