Some of the highest and finest marine cliffs in Europe, County Donegal’s Sliabh Liag
(Slieve League in English) are not to be missed. To make the most of your visit, it’s best
to leave your car in the car park and walk the few kilometres to the cliffs. As you climb
toward the top of Sliabh Liag – which at 601m high is not a place for the faint-hearted –
there are terrific views of the Atlantic Ocean, Donegal Bay and the Sligo Mountains.
Sliabh Liag was also the site of a Christian pilgrimage for more than a 1,000 years, although
it’s believed to have been a sacred place long before the Christians arrived. Given
the landscape’s rich history, there is a lot you can learn at the visitor centre, where you’ll
also get a taste of the local food, culture and unique sense of humour.
