Slieve League by Boat
An alternative way of viewing the breath taking landscape of the Slieve League (Sliabh Liag) cliffs is by boat. The boat goes close to the shore so that visitors can appreciate the spectacular sights.
Sometimes the boats are joined by wildlife like dolphins, whales, seals, and in May and June you can often see basking sharks feeding on the plankton. There is also a wide range of bird life that can be seen nesting and hunting.
Did you ever dream of swimming at the foot of the Sliabh Liag Cliffs well now you can.
Try something different on your trip along the Wild Atlantic Way. Well worth a trip.

Slieve League. Donegal
Slieve League a tall mountain of nearly 2000 feet, precipitous on its northern side, has been devoured by the sea till the southern face forms a precipice likewise, descending on this side right into the Atlantic from the long knife-edge which forms the summit. 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.
Swooping down from the mountain of Slieve League, the cliffs are among the highest sea cliffs in Europe. From the highest point on the cliffs, it’s a staggering 609m (1,998 feet) drop into the swirling Atlantic Ocean below.
