If driving yourself go early to avoid the tour buses, bathrooms at lower parking lot, we avoided the visitors center and walked up to view point. We arrived at 08:30 and had the view to ourselves, by the time we left numerous groups were arriving.

If you're into awesome vistas, they don't get much more panoramic than these immense cliffs. There's a small car park (charge) then a long steep-ish walk to the cliffs (though I believe there's a shuttle bus for a charge too). We were there on a very windy grey day (and fortunately just missed the rain) - a shame as a blue sky would have made a difference. But it was still worth the trip as the view was tremendous. Their claim to be much higher than the Cliffs of Moher might be valid but at this scale it's hard to tell. Personally, I'd say go to both (I have!) as they offer different perspectives on this rugged coast.

absolutely beautiful. Very rugged, not like Cliffs of Moher, no borders between you and cliffs. Just a suggestion, pay the extra 5 pounds to drive up to the viewing point. It is a very long walk

Like others have said, it's a bit of a hike, but it's doable. We had a nice walk up to the cliffs, then had hot chocolate while we took in the views. Of course, this was one of the only rainy days that we had, but such is Ireland! We did have a little bit of a hard time finding the cliffs, our GPS took us up near the Glencolmcille Folk Village.

Really nice drive to get here and then the view was not disappointing, it is quite a walk from the car park but you can pay to get a shuttle bus, it’s stunning

All the superlatives in the world fail to describe the reality of ascending the Slieve League Cliffs
We were rewarded with views which will last a lifetime
The views from the top are unsurpassable
Tip: if you can’t get into the car park nearest to the cliffs, park in the visitors centre car park and take a bus in - dogs are allowed - for a few euros each - a truly brilliant experience

There are no words to describe the beauty of the cliffs. It’s almost a religious experience to see them. I suggest buying a ticket for the bus to take you all the way to the top if you don’t want to walk the mile from the car park. The driver will give you lots of history that you might not get otherwise.

Months ago a coworker told me about this location, I was expecting a place that was somewhat “ undiscovered” and while not overcrowded on this September afternoon it was still fairly busy. Beautiful cliffs after a 25 minute walk from the parking lot which costs five euros for two hours or fifteen for the day. Love to return with a setting Sun.

just WOW! Certainly one of the most beautiful walks in Ireland. When you do the walk at the SLIAG LIAG Cliffs in Co Donegal, then I can only say that the nature brings you a feast for the eye! I t starts with a a short steep climb followed with a lovely up and down walk for about 4 Km one way. You can drive to the higher located car park but then you'll miss the exiting scenery. There are also ponds and babbling brooks at the other side of the ocean.
Once you get about halfway you can see the ocean quite deep and after every bend shows another beautiful scenario up. At the end of the hard walking path is a point view platform. What you see from there is just the max!
