What travellers are saying
- Almost 2000 ft high, Slieve League is one of the highest sea cliffs in Europe, almost three times the height of the Cliffs of Moher. It's a dramatic sight from the viewpoint. where you can also see across Donegal Bay on a clear day. There is a paid parking lot, where you can leave your car and walk the rest of the way (though gates were open when we reached very early, so we could drive all the way to the top). It was quiet and peaceful, with just some sheep for company.Written 14 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- What an amazing experience!
The outside hides soo many tales, history, stories and the meaning of life
Our guide, Pat, was informative, friendly, just enough chat, and interactive with us
Your fee for entering also gets you a cuppa and something to eat (scone, cake) and it’s good
You start the tour with a visit to a couple of cottages and then your journey begins
I won’t give any spoilers, but we thought it would take us 1/2 an hour - we left after 2 hours
And the views - gobsmacking!!
Such an amazing experience!

- The castle was built in the
1850's by a man called Adair who subsequently subsequently evicted all the tenants. The house subsequently passed through a number of owners one of whom disappeared. It was left to the State and has been wonderfully maintained. well worth a visitWritten 18 October 2023
- This place is stunning and not tacky like lands end in England. It was quiet when we visited, the narrow roads and small car park are either a blessing or a curse! The views are fab and it is the start /end of the Wild Atlantic WayWritten 24 October 2023
- Last visited 25 years ago, when the site was having major conservation work carried out, as well as having a new roof installed. It's nice to see the site restored, and open. Spent many summers in sight of the castle, which looms over the town and it did not disappoint. The information boards were clear, outlining the site history within Ulster and the site was overall not overly restored. The grounds are well cared for and looked after by OPW. Adult admission is €5.00, but entry is free if you have an English heratige/Cadw/Historic Environment Scotland membership. The gift shop could have been a bit bigger and better stocked. There is no coffee shop on site, but food outlets are a short walk from the site. Allow 60-90 mins the take in the site. Truly worth a visit.Written 14 July 2023
- We did a tour while on a weekend break in North Donegal. It was a great experience. Our guide Oisin was fantastic. He was friendly, informative and couldn't have been more helpful. Learned about the history and importance of lighthouses, not only in Donegal but around Ireland while experiencing the amazing and unique views around the lighthouse. The highlight was the climb to the top of the Tower. The tour also includes a short virtual reality experience and a listening experience. Great value for money. A nice coffee shop at the car park also. Highly recommended and thanks again to Oisin.Written 29 November 2023

- The Glebe Gallery and Gardens is a must for everyone. Jean and Gallery staff are so helpful and friendly. The Gardens are beautiful, the wild flower meadows, the bog garden and the New area in the Bog Garden is a fantastic addition. This place us so natural and fair play to the staff of Ryan, the gardener and Martin and Peter. A must to visit if one is on a visit to the Churchill area. There are free Garden Tours conducted by Ryan, the Gardener through the year.Written 21 November 2023

Food was lovely staff were great but Bug Shout out for the gorgeous Louise who took our booking, helped sort balloons and cake and made sure that we were very well looked after. Will definitely return thank you xWritten 19 August 2023

- Beautiful place with exceptional views across the country. A little climb to get to the top but we'll worth it. Great wheelchair access to the Fort.Written 7 September 2023
- Wandered into Inishowen, tourist office, and Monica, who works there was very helpful to my group with maps and information in the local area. Excellent.Written 25 October 2023
- The walk to the waterfall is well-maintained over gravel. The grade is never steep and the bridges are wide with railings. I can't say how a wheelchair would do because the gravel is medium-coarse; skinny wheels might require a lot of effort.
All that said, the journey to the falls is lovely as the valley narrows. And the sounds of the creek rushing over rocks is cathartic.Written 11 September 2023
