Hike to the top of the Slieve League (Sliabh Liag) cliffs on the south west coast of County Donegal and marvel at the terrific views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Sligo Mountains and Donegal Bay.

Discover extraordinary Slieve League (Sliabh Liag) and admire some of the best sea cliff views in Europe. To fully enjoy the spectacle of Sliabh League, leave your car at the car park and walk to the cliffs. For over a thousand years, there was a Christian pilgrimage to these sacred mountains to appreciate their cultural heritage.

The Slieve League cliffs are truly breathtaking, the cliff face of Bunglas rises over 600m above the raging ocean. Only experienced walkers should venture beyond the viewing point onto One Man's Pass which loops around the Pilgrim's Path.

Book a boat trip from nearby Teelin Harbour to the base of the majestic sea cliffs, hear local legends and colourful stories from the skipper. A swim with the local pod of dolphins is a real treat and if you arrive in May or June, watch out for basking sharks.
