The Slieve League Coast

Bunbeg to Donegal Town

The Wild Atlantic Way continues to twist and turn from Bunbeg in a southerly direction. You pass through the strange but wonderful region called The Rosses with its bogs and lakes. The ocean is dotted with uncountable small islands but also with Ireland's second largest island – Arranmore.

The Wild Atlantic Way takes a short break from the coast after Ardara in order to cross over the Glengesh Pass. Continuing on through Glencolumbkille, a haven of tranquillity with many ancient monuments the route meanders along narrow coastal roads unfurling more and more breathtaking views and ending directly above the unspoilt Silver Strand.

The steep sloping cliffs of Slieve League belong to the highest cliffs of Europe. It seems to the observer that they are continuously changing their image, one moment hidden in the low-hanging cloud and the next exhibiting a glorious majestic shiny face.
