Slieve League Cliffs leaves you breathless from the moment you are there. Go early and stay late, bring water and a picnic lunch. There is so much to explore and to see the majestic views. There is a lower parking lot and another up aways through the gate. Save time and park at the second parking area. You are in... More

One of the most beautiful places in Ireland - undersold in my opinion. A lovely place for a walk ..... you can take a short walk or longer and still benefit from amazing views. Much nicer than the cliffs of Moher, and quieter as well. Been in varying different weather, and still love it.

Remote and unspoiled piece of Donegal. Best to visit on a clear sunny day when visibility is best. Worth the journey.

We drove out the cliffs from Donegal town. It's a really lovely place to visit and very remote. There is a pilgrims walk/ route which unfortunately we weren't dressed appropriately for. If you go do bring your walking boots and supplies. It looked lovely. We drove to the cliffs scenic point. We parked at the first car park and walked... More

Absolutely stunning. Certainly a good second to Cliffs of Moher though locals claim more ;-) it is good 5km walk there and back from lower car park. You can drive up through gate and there is a good parking spot further up. We enjoyed walk but worth considering. On a clear day, you feel like you are on edge of... More

Slieve League has such incredible views, it really shouldn't be missed by anyone visiting Ireland, never mind Donegal! A lovely hike up the cliff's edge yields phenomenal vistas at every turn, up and down. Unmissable.

You have certainly read about the gate you can open and close to park your car closer... well, it's true for both the path to the cliffs (5 min walk to the cliffs) and the Pilgrim path (1h30 to get nowhere near the cliffs!!!). We took the wrong directions and we ended up walking between the mountains thinking it would... More

Slieve League cliffs are absolutely stunning, and are a must-see if you're in the Northwest part of Ireland. They are a bit remote, but the journey is very worth it, and the way up to the viewing area is paved and well-marked. As many reviewers have mentioned, you can just open the gate and drive up to another parking lot... More

hiked a large portion of slieve league in May. the initial portion of the trail is very easily identified and marked, however the deeper you go, the less beaten the path is and it can get quite treacherous. I highly suggest wearing appropriate hiking attire, having hiking poles, and a pack with extra clothes and food/water as it can get... More
