Slieve League, Carrick

Though not as famous as its counterpart, Slieve League boasts cliffs that are actually three times the size of the Cliffs of Moher. This mountain along the Atlantic Coast stands 601 m (1,972 ft) high. Explore the area by foot along the site's pathways, or drive to a nearby lookout for a panoramic view of the sea cliffs. The most popular and well-photographed viewpoint is called Bunglass and can be reached by road from Teelin. Take an archeological tour of the region and visit the Slieve League Cliffs Centre for more tourist information, a quick bite at the cafe, or to browse the gift shop.

  • The highest cliffs in Europe! A must see place. The view is spectacular. There is a bit of a hike but it’s really worth it.  more »
  • Dramatic site with incredible views. Easy trail to top of cliffs, with stones that are not slippery even when wet.  more »

  • One of the most beautiful places on Earth I've ever been. Remote, with limited or no public facilities, but truly stunning sea cliffs.
  • Not to be missed. Spectacular does not even describe Slieve League and The Wild Atlantic Way drive around Donegal coast,Highest sea cliffs in Europe
  • No photos or videos can show the true views and breathtaking views here, only thing is to visit and check out the views and lovely walk up to bring you to new heights of the cliff and
  • Great walk with great views. Highly recommended!!
  • These sea cliffs are worth the full hike to the top. There are two trails: one is a path built by monks coming up the backside of the cliffs and the second is a less obvious trail along the cliffs in the grass/exposed rock. I’ve hiked the second trail twice and would do it again! The hike is somewhat difficult so wear comfortable clothing and bring enough water.
