Slieve League - Review

Located on the Atlantic Coast of Dongela, the Slieve League is known for its highest cliffs in Ireland. The drive here is not for the faint hearted and it is often recommended that visitors should visit this spot on clear days as the mist can be tricky. The cliff embraces a spectacular view on the sea all along the one-man trails that are one of the hardest to walk on a windy day.

Tourists love the sheer magnificence of the place along with its intimate and larger-than-life appeal which is rare to find anywhere else.

Every Photographer’s dream, be sure to carry your cameras here to capture the panoramic views.

Slieve League, Donegal Reviews

  • The highest cliffs in Ireland, we were the on the time of sunset. The gate was closed, but people kept opening it to drive to the end. As it is too long to walk to see them. The view was amazing, sunset was really special. Stunning place to visit, one of most beautifull cliffs in the West coast of Ireland.

  • A great place to visit if it is good weather outside! The views are truly incredible. The height of the cliffs are nearly three times greater than the Cliffs of Moher! I recommend walking up the cliff rather than driving as the scenery is breathtaking

  • It's the Heaven on Earth.. you will feel top of the world.. A must see place in Ireland... Highly recommended

  • Went in a driving rain storm and hiked up about 2km off one of the side roads on the wild Atlantic way... Loved it! Similar to the black cliffs of Moher... Worth the trip!

  • Breathe taking and absolutely one of the most enjoyable parts of Ireland!! You don't want miss this sight if you're in the northeastern part of the country!!
