Slieve League, Donegal (Hike)
Duration 4-8 Hours Full Day
Distance 8 km
Another stunning hike on the Atlantic Coast of Donegal is Slieve League. Ireland's ultimate seacliff !!! It sits proudly on the Wild Atlantic Way, and is famous for some of the highest sea cliffs on the island of Ireland and even Europe! They are almost 3 times higher than the Cliffs of Moher.
Book one or both hikes with me, (Mount Errigal & Slieve League) to see the panoramic viewpoints of breathtaking, amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean, Donegal Bay and counties Leitrim, Sligo and Mayo. There is so much to look at from stunning valleys, rugged landscapes and unreal scenery. You can even see Benbulben or as I call it 'Benny' in Sligo, from here!
I will tell you stories and educate you about things that will make this place extra special and create an even more special meaning in your memories. I'll talk about the wildlife and how they live and survive such as the sea birds, wild Irish hare and of course not to forget Donegal sheep. The northern precipice, which drops 1500 feet into the coomb surrounding the Little Lough Agh, harbours the majority of the alpine plants of Slieve League, the most varied group of alpines to be found anywhere in Donegal.
The traverse of this ridge, the "One Man's Path", is one of the most remarkable walks to be found in Ireland. I will make sure you get the perfect spot for the most amazing photo. There are so many other surprises I want to show and tell you on this tour. I promise you will be amazed and even changed a little!
