Slieve League sea cliffs, Teelin, Carrick, County Donegal

Sliabh Liag
The viewing point on Slieve League (Sliabh a'Liag) in Teelin, Donegal, Ireland lets visitors enjoy the most incredible views of the South West Donegal landscape and sea vistas.

Visitors can see across Donegal Bay to Counties Sligo, Letrim and Mayo. As far as the eye can see to the west is the Atlantic ocean with Rathlin O'Byrne island, and Glencolmcille. All around the visitor are the incredible sights of the sea cliffs of SLiabh a'Liag.

These cliffs rise almost 2,000 ft (598 metres) from the Atlantic Ocean making them one of the highest sea cliffs in Europe (and twice as high as the Cliffs of Mohar!).

The area is reknown for its history - the megalithic tombs and mythical links.

Dotted around the coastline can be seen Signal Towers built by the English to watch out for the return of the French. On top of Sliabh a'Liag is an early Christian monastic site where the remains of Ade mc Bric's chapel can still be seen. Walk across the "one man's path" and you will find a trig point, placed atop of an ancient structure of unknown origin. Visit Sliabh a'Liag for a glimpse of the past....
