Slieve League, Carrick

Must see · Lookout · Geologic Formation
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.

  • I have always wanted to see these cliffs and I was not disappointed. There is a car park at a visitors centre (centre closed due to Covid) There is a walk up to the Eagles Nest viewpoint but beware...  more »
  • Fantastic destination. Donegal never disappoints!! Walk from the car park with the toilets, regardless of the weather unless visibility is very poor, it’s a breathtaking experience! Just spectacular.....  more »
  • I lack the words to describe the beauty of these cliffs. I was awestruck. A must-visit when in Ireland. I do recommend opening the gate and driving to the second car park at the viewing point...  more »
  • This place is unreal, and cliffs of moher is literally nothing in front of it! Must-must go!
  • Awesome place! Don't miss!
  • Don't miss. Worth to visit. Incredible view. Try to be there befor 5pm (gate close) to drive up and to save time walking up and down to get to the end.
  • Wonderful cliffs! But there were a lot of tourists. Just for future won‘t be alone. There‘s also a free car park at entrance.
  • Tough roads to get there, nice views, but it's very crowded and just too busy. You can drive trough the gate at the car park and many minibuses and private cars do this.
