Slieve League Sea Cliffs, Ireland

There’s only one word to describe the cliffs at Slieve League in County Donegal: Breathtaking.

At almost 2000 feet high, they are among the highest sea cliffs in the World. On a windy day, like when I visited, it feels like you could be blown right off them at any moment. Although, they’re so high, you’d perhaps never reach the Atlantic Ocean, so far below!

Sue and I were both afraid we might get blown right off the cliffs - At least her bright yellow jacket would have been easy to spot!

    Ireland has so many amazing cliffs. I was just at the Kerry Cliffs and know what you mean about the wind! Luckily there they had railing all along the edge.

    sono fra le più alte d’Europa ed incutono un certo timore ed una certa riverenza, selvagge ed aspre, con il mare spinto dai venti dell’oceano, quasi sempre infuriato
    splendide immagini

  6. We missed Slieve League in 2014 there was not enough time. These photos are great for a look at what we passed by. Would like to spend a week or so on Donegal and walk the path on top of the cliffs.

I'd love to hear what you've got to say!
