Overview
More
We run tours to the Sliabh Liag Cliffs, the highest sea cliffs in Europe standing 600m (1972 feet ). We operate from April to October, and sometimes earlier or later if weather is ok. With our 2 boats we can carry 24 passengers. The tour lasts about one and a half hours, and we take in many wonderful sights.Sometimes we are joined by wild life, like dolphins, whales, seals, and in May and June we often see basking sharks feeding on the plankton.Guests can go for a swim in the clear waters near Sliabh Liag we can supply wetsuits if you think the water is cold most don't need them.Some people are lucky enough to be joined by dolphins. Sailing Times 10am 12noon 2pm 4pm 6pm and 8 am/pm if needed. Although I don't answer all reviews I appreciate the feedback . I only answer reviews that I feel do not reflect the tour and will try to correct anything negative that crops up. We are a small operation and I run it to the best of my ability. So don't be upset if I don't reply. Thank you Paddy

If you are headed to Slieve League, the view from the water is even better than the view from the top of the cliffs! Paddy is a great captain and this might be the best value boat tour in Ireland!

Sliabh Liag cliffs have been described as the 'piece de resistance of the Irish coastline' and they are magnificent. In recent years, the viewing points from land have become busy with traffic. Viewing them from the sea is much less crowded and more elemental. Leaving...More

The best place we have visited in Ireland and we have been going for years. The scenery was breathtaking! Paddy was really helpful and friendly. He was also very knowledgeable and humorous. A must!
