Donegal - Slieve League Peninsula - worth it?

Jump to last reply

I have researched the Slieve League trails/cliffs on various websites and I’m not finding the answer I seek. I’m really looking for an eyewitness account of this place. We’re trying to decide if we should remove Slieve League Peninsula from our Co. Donegal itinerary. We’ll be spending 5 or 6 days in Co. Donegal in early May and we definitely plan to see Glenveagh Nat’l. Park.

So back to the area in question… Is it possible to see magnificent sights on the Slieve League Peninsula without having to navigate the treacherous “one man’s pass” on foot (or I’ve even read you can belly-slide across)? I’ve read that the Bunglass Cliffs offer a less harrowing experience.

If we are not planning to climb the Slieve League Mountain/sea cliffs or scramble over to Bunglass cliffs, is it even worth stopping here? Has anyone ever enjoyed this area on foot without climbing to the edges of the cliffs?

We are in our mid-30s. We like to take long walks for several miles and do some moderate hiking on marked trails, but we are by no means mountain climbers willing to navigate slippery cliff sides in the mist. Since my travel books only highlight the extreme dangers of this area, I have no idea what to expect otherwise. One time we peered off the Cliffs of Moher, but I have a feeling that is no comparison to the Slieve League Cliffs. Co.Donegal seems to have many wonderful nature/beach walks so would it be in our best interest to enjoy those instead of stressing over this Slieve League area?

p.s. I have also read the other threads on this site concerning the treacherous driving conditions of both Slieve League Road and Glengesh Pass. Thanks for the warnings.
