About Sliabh Liag Boat Tours
We run tours to the Sliabh Liag Cliffs, the highest sea cliffs in Europe standing 600m (1972 feet ). We operate from April to October, and sometimes earlier or later if weather is ok. With our 2 boats we can carry 24 passengers. The tour lasts about one and a half hours, and we take in many wonderful sights.Sometimes we are joined by wild life, like dolphins, whales, seals, and in May and June we often see basking sharks feeding on the plankton.Guests can go for a swim in the clear waters near Sliabh Liag we can supply wetsuits if you think the water is cold most don't need them.Some people are lucky enough to be joined by dolphins. Sailing Times 10am 12noon 2pm 4pm 6pm and 8 am/pm if needed. Although I don't answer all reviews I appreciate the feedback . I only answer reviews that I feel do not reflect the tour and will try to correct anything negative that crops up. We are a small operation and I run it to the best of my ability. So don't be upset if I don't reply. Thank you Paddy

Booked this trip as part of a weekend away for family birthday celebration as we were staying in the area. I’m so glad I did as it was the highlight of a wonderful weekend, There was 8 in our group and as they split up the numbers over two boats, we ended up with the boat to ourselves. The tour guide was excellent and the scenery just fantastic. What made the trip for me was the dolphins joining the boats for a time which we hadn’t been expecting and of course is not guaranteed but was just amazing. Paddy was engaging, friendly and full of knowledge of the area. Certainly the best boat trip I’ve ever been on.

I highly recommend this tour. I've seen the cliffs several times from above, but this is a great perspective. Paddy was great and very informative. I would definitely do this again

We were a group of 12 friends and had a great experience. Paddy was brilliant to deal with and we had great banter and craic on the boat trip with him. Paddy was informative and told us about the cliffs and other local history. I would highly recommend to anyone.

Very nice to see the cliffs from the sea. Captain Paddy is a bit like marmite. He is well intentioned with a kind heart, but I can see some might find his banter and comments a little difficult. Very entertaining and also very safety conscious and professional. The surfaces on both boats were all sprayed between each set of customers. Some confusion about who was going in which boat - I think that everyone wanted to be with Paddy! Trip was good value. It’s not on the info, but you can swim from the boat (in hot weather!). This looked like a very nice activity.

We had an absolute ball with Paddy on our boat tour of the Sliabh Leagues. Having been let down by another boat company for a sailing (they decided to end the season early) they suggested to us that we tried Paddy's boat tours. We initially booked for a Thursday but Paddy emailed us on the Monday to say that he wouldn't be sailing Thursday duw to bad weather but as we were flexible we asked to be moved to the Wednesday. Paddy was very helpful and efficient in accommodating this for us. The views of the Cliffs were beautiful and Paddy's explanation of the landscape and historical facts were really interesting and made the tour very personal. There was a great vibe on the boat with the other passengers too. Some of them were able to for a swim also which was great. We were out on the boat for just about 2 hours and had a fabulous time. I would absolute recommend to family & friends.
