We experienced the dramatic Slieve League. It is 2,000 feet high and 3 times higher than the Cliffs of Moher. We hiked up the steep stone trail and the views were breathtaking! If we had brought water and snacks, we would have done the whole...More

Don’t park in the first car park. Go through the gate and drive up to the second car park. It’s a must if you have anyone who can’t walk far or up a steep hill. Why spend time walking on a road blocked by smaller...More

This has been on my to do list since i was a teenager, the drive to it, from Donegal town, through Killybegs and beyond is fabulous, and Slieve League is the highlight, it's in no way commercialized, stunning views, it gives you a great sense...More

Slieve League is the tallest sea cliffs in Europe. They are mildly remote and not all that well known, which I think is good. You will not fight the crowds and be sucked into tourism like you do at the Cliffs of Mohr. True, they...More

We’d been to the Cliffs of Mohr and to cliffs near Kilkenny, but these are very spectacular. There’s a car park and a long walk up, or you can open the cattle gate (DON’T forget to close it again) and drive up a very narrow...More

Our private driver/guide on our four day tour told us that Slieve League is a "must see," so we trusted his advice and were sure glad we did. Although the weather was extremely windy and brisk, we walked up the path to an incredible view...More

We did this walk on a very windy day and the wind almost took your breath away at times. It was hard work walking into the wind. We made the mistake of parking in the first lot we saw. There was a gate and we...More

Picturesque and iconic! You can drive the way up, but we stopped at the main entrance and walked up to the view point. Bring water, good shoes, and come on a good day!

We visited Slieve League a few days after already seeing the Cliffs of Moher (a must see) and we were still pleasantly surprised by the natural beauty and great views found here. It’s a nice little drive getting here as well. This is a great...More

This was our first stop for sightseeing in Ireland. Breathtaking is the first word that comes to mind. One of the beauties of this place is there are not the crowds you see at Cliffs of Moher. The colors are amazing. We drove past the...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.
