It was a bit of a walk, but it was beautiful the whole way. We saw sheep and lambs on the walk way. We found out, that you do not have to park in the lot below, you can drive up 3/4th of the way...More

Fun drive up to the first car park which has lined parking spaces. Now you have an option. Drive through the cattle gate which someone must open and close or walk up. If you can walk a relatively steep paved road for about 30 minutes...More

We set off from Lough Eske Castle by car via Google. What a mistake that was. We didn't make it to the lookout because the road was so narrow, rocky and impossible to pass another car. We wish we had read the reviews and we...More

First things first. When you see reviews, make sure you’re clear on which route they’re taking about. There is the standard route from the visitor center and the Pilgrams Path and they are VERY different. We accidentally started off on the Pilgrims Path and I’m...More

Park at the first car park and walk up (if you are able) as the viewsyou will get are much better on foot. The walk to the cliff viewing point is almost as good as the cliffs themselves, with plenty of photo opportunities.

Parked at the first car park. I would highly recommend this instead of driving up because you see the most spectacular views that you wouldn’t see if driving. However, it is a bit of a trek up so if you’re not great on the feet,...More

Yes, but I wouldn't want to do that climb with on. Once you get to the upper parking lot you couldn't use it to get any further.

You can probably do it from Donegal. That is a large enough town to base from, while still being small. We stopped in Killybegs, which is between Donegal and Slieve League, and we were able to do both from there.
