Slieve League Cliffs are Ireland’s ultimate sea cliff experience. Located in the Gaeltacht region, Slieve League Cliffs are known as the highest accessible sea cliffs in Europe reaching a height of 1,972 feet/601 meters. Slieve League is a place of sacred Christian pilgrimage and a rich Irish heritage and culture.
Slieve League Cliffs are truly Mother Nature’s finest canvas where tales of myth and legend, local history and Irish tradition seem to be painted into this wild and rugged landscape. To fully enjoy the spectacle of Slieve League Cliffs, it’s recommended that you walk the few miles to the cliff viewing point, so as not to miss the exciting scenery of the area. Walk up the winding road to the main viewing point–past the lake and local sheep–where at the top; you will be rewarded with the most stunning views as Donegal Bay sweeps in towards you. Look out for basking sharks and dolphins known to visit these waters on a regular basis, in particular during summer. Slieve League is a walker’s paradise and offers various trails for different skill and fitness levels. The famous One Man’s Path loops around onto the Pilgrim’s Path and is not for the faint-hearted. Prepare to be dazzled by the panoramic view across Donegal Bay, which is simply breathtaking.
The award-winning, family-run Slieve League Cliffs centre is the last stop before the Cliffs. Here you will find “Tí Linn Café”, serving artisan cuisine, which marries Irish traditional and modern tastes. The on-site craft shop has a large selection of local and national crafts, knitwear and gifts, with something for everyone.
