I'm almost hesitant to sing the praises of Slieve League, simply because part of what makes it so incredible is how sparse the crowds can be (especially compared to Cliffs of Moher, etc). It was absolutely stunning and, on our first visit, there was literally...More

The cliffs of Slieve League are so much more spectacular than the Cliffs of Moher. Also, Cliffs of Moher are overrun by tourists, but the cliffs of Slieve League are much quieter, being somewhat out of the way. The cliffs, the mountains behind them, the...More

Wow - just an outstanding corner of the earth. The rocks, sea view, sheep, sights and sounds really made this visit to Slieve League a high point of our visit to Donegal.

These cliffs beat out the Cliffs of Moher by leaps and bounds. Granted, to get the best experience, you need to be fit enough to climb up a ways. But wow, the climb and the views have been one of my favorite parts of our...More

We visited Slieve League (cliffs in Donegal) and just loved the experience. I prefer these cliffs to the Cliffs of Moher because of the raw natural beauty. Not commercialized like the other Cliffs but sadly a few wagons with gifts and food have been added....More

We weren't even committed to visiting Slieve League when we were visiting Ardara briefly but decided to take the trip. So glad we did because we were just blown away by this natural marvel. You could just sit for hours on one of the benches...More

We were going to do the boat tour, is this a better view in your opinion? Also, is it a very narrow and harrowing drive up to the second car park? I'm wondering what is the best time of day is best to go. Thanks, Shelby McCoy

The drive up to the second car park is narrow in parts, but not difficult. We didn't go on the boat tour, so don't know if it is worth it. The best time of day is probably in the afternoon - it will be busier, but the sun... More
My family and I are visiting Ireland next week. My heart is set on hiking the Slieve League. We are a very fit family, we love the outdoors. However, I am wondering if the One Man's Pass and up to the summit is safe enough for our 13yr old and our 6yr old? Thank you for your help!

To climb the back would be okay but I would not advice on the children crossing the one mans path as it is very narrow. If they became afraid it could destroy their love of climbing in the future. You also need to be aware... More
