Slieve League – Move over The Cliffs of Mohar

Undoubtedly The Cliffs of Mohar are spectacular and a big tourist attraction in Ireland.  Sliced vertical cliffs rising from the sea  in almost perfect unison, topped in brilliant emerald green. They are surely a sight to behold.

Yet the little known and visited Slieve League in Donegal  took my breath away, time after time.  Being the highest sea cliffs in Europe they hold many secrets to witness.

I’ve spent many days walking along the cliffs and  surrounding hills in almost silence (apart from the bleating sheep grazing on the grasses). I’ve drifted in a boat on several occasions (boat tours depart from Ti Linn) to observe the detail and grandeur of gnarled rock formations that time forgot.  I’ve watched the bog coloured water stream through the folds of the landscape creating streaming waterfalls which find their way into the Atlantic Ocean.  These scenes are WILD and  GLORIOUS beyond words. Whether it is sunny or raining – the weather presents different vistas to delight your soul.

Devoid of the masses of tourists which disturb your thoughts – allowing you to absorb nature’s force and untouched raw beauty in action.
