At over 600m above the sea, the cliffs of Slieve League (Liag) are among the highest in Europe, and will take your breath away. While they don’t get the coverage of the Cliffs of Moher in Clare, the cliffs at Slieve League are over twice as high as the famous Cliffs of Moher, so this spectacular cliff face is a must for anyone planning a road trip through Donegal or along the Wild Atlantic Way.
A sacred mountain, Slieve League is thought to be an ancient Christian pilgrimage for thousands of years, so as you set foot on the cliffs, you are setting foot on a place with important ties to Ireland’s long Christian history. With views of the Sligo mountains and Donegal Bay waiting for you, take time to enjoy the amazing views and crashing waves at Slieve League.
