  • We traveled up the winding and narrow road to the cliffs very comfortably with Sliabh tours. The cliffs are the highest on the island. Be sure to take a jacket, the wind is fierce. The views are magni...  more »
  • Wonderful scenery and a lovely walk. I would recommend walking from the lower car park as you get to see the lovely views on the walk up. Toilets in the lower car park and the/coffee stands at the top...  more »
  • Must see location is the Slieve Liag cliffs. The scenery is excellent with several views and angles to photograph. Check out the local photographer that has a small display near the top car park Plan ...  more »

  • Spectacular. The walk to the top can be tough when there has been a lot of rain. In September we spent over two hours to get to the beginning of one man's pass, and didn't have the time to do the full trail. If you plan to go further than the main viewing points at Bunglass, be prepared for a bit of a serious hike. Bring sticks, and good clothing. But you can also just play it by ear and see how far you get. The views are spectacular, no matter how far you get.
  • Spectacular views from the viewing point. And if you are a climber and a good walker who is not afraid of heights, continue up the broken path to the top. The pilgrim path is long and boring but safer. One man's pass is dangerous and scary in high winds. I only went out a few meters and would only recommend doing it with a guide. If the weather is bad, I'd recommend waiting in the Rusty Mackerel pub, have some food, and wait for the weather to clear.
  • Breathtaking scenery - On arrival you can either drive all the way up (to a large car park) or if you are feeling energetic you can park the car and walk about 30mins or so to the cliffs. It can be a long trek, especially if the weather isn't favourable. Once at the cliffs you are rewarded with stunning views - make sure you bring your camera!
  • Worth driving to this remote part. Weather permitting, it's a class hike with lovely views. Weather not permitting, don't do it as that Atlantic winds howls and the rain is sideways.
  • The highest accessible cliffs in Ireland, fantastic place and well worth the effort to see them. Five times higher than Moher!
