Well worth a visit to see this amazing natural phenomenon, stunning vistas along these 600m high cliffs, worth the effort to walk along the cliff top path a few hundred metres for an even better view.

Great walk along tops of cliffs. A bit out of the way and apparently can be disappointing on a wet or misty day. We were really lucky the sun was shining. It was beautiful

We were going to do the boat tour, is this a better view in your opinion? Also, is it a very narrow and harrowing drive up to the second car park? I'm wondering what is the best time of day is best to go. Thanks, Shelby McCoy

The drive up to the second car park is narrow in parts, but not difficult. We didn't go on the boat tour, so don't know if it is worth it. The best time of day is probably in the afternoon - it will be busier, but the sun... More
My family and I are visiting Ireland next week. My heart is set on hiking the Slieve League. We are a very fit family, we love the outdoors. However, I am wondering if the One Man's Pass and up to the summit is safe enough for our 13yr old and our 6yr old? Thank you for your help!
