Great facilities (toilets/parking/coffee shop) No charge to park. Lovely walk from the bottom car park, would recommend doing the full trail to get all the views.

Went twice this week! On saturday, we took the long trail. It took us an hour to get there and was a bit steep but comfortable. The view on top was stunning! Best to get in the morning because the scene is unreal and you dont wanna leave. Then on sunday we drove and parked up close the to starting point and trail was so easy, even a 6 year old will find it fun. Again lovely view!

Really nice lookout. It’s easy enough to park in the lower parking lot. There are bathrooms. If you walk, you’ll be able to notice a small trail going by a seeing stone which takes you to an old lookout tower. Or if you’re in a hurry, you can drive through the gate by lifting up to rope holding it in place. There is a small parking lot at the end of the road. It’s possible this lot will run out of space though. Park signs discourage using this path to summit the eagle’s nest further north from this route due to cliff erosion (they recommend the pilgrim’s path instead). In any case, still possible. Mostly road and stone walkway hike. No fee parking lot.

We parked at the bottom car park and proceeded past the gate, up the hill. The first part is road with some track detours to take in the fabulous views. Once you reach the top car park, the trail begins. It was wild, wet and windy but still a great hike. We walked past the trail highlighted but not far past. The trail is well maintained and the views are spectacular. These are the highest cliffs in Europe and if you feel good, just keep walking. Highly recommend.

Cher journal... Toujours en direction de Letterkenny, on s'arrête pour une belle randonnée aux falaises de Sliabh Liag. C'est tout simplement magnifique et il y a un sentier bien aménagé pour se rendre au sommet des falaises.
