Slieve League Cliffs
Though far less visited then the better known Cliffs of Moher the cliffs at Slieve League are over twice as high, rising almost 2000 ft from the North Atlantic making them the highest sea cliffs in Europe.
The scenery around Slieve League is stunning and a walk along the cliff top is both exhilarating and worthwhile for the amazing views. The narrow One Man’s Path leads to the summit of Slieve League from where the best views can be had, though it’s a climb for the stout hearted and not one to be undertaken in poor weather. The sheer cliff face at Bunglas is more accessible and equally stunning.
At the end of your walk a visit to the small craft center and its excellent cafe, run by local people and with home made treats galore, is a worthy reward.
One of the great things about Slieve League is that is it is not at all commercialised – there is no entrance fee and parking is free – and is usually uncrowded. You just arrive and start walking! It’s off the beaten track but is a favorite destination of anyone who takes the time to get there and certainly one that our guests have rated very highly.
