Nature at Its Best

I have always wanted to see these cliffs and I was not disappointed. There is a car park at a visitors centre (centre closed due to Covid) There is a walk up to the Eagles Nest viewpoint but beware it is a hike as the road is very steep at the outset and then is quite a distance until you get to the viewpoint - I would guess a mile. However if you drive up to the gate at the foot of this road you can open it up and drive up but there is only space for about 10 or so cars at the top and the road is narrow and takes traffic up and down so maybe not for the faint hearted!! The views of the cliffs, Atlantic Ocean and surrounding scenery is worth the trip and will not disappoint

Fantastic destination. Donegal never disappoints!! Walk from the car park with the toilets, regardless of the weather unless visibility is very poor, it’s a breathtaking experience! Just spectacular scenery and probably understated. Couple of great places to eat after your trek, rust mackerel was really great!
#gonorth for a truly fantastic Irish experience
Wish Trip Advisor would correct the spelling of the destination!!

Utter magnificence!

I lack the words to describe the beauty of these cliffs. I was awestruck. A must-visit when in Ireland. I do recommend opening the gate and driving to the second car park at the viewing point, especially if you plan on walking up the mountain, as the car parks are approximately 2km from each other. One of the most beautiful places I have ever visited.

These cliffs are well worth the walk up from the bottom car park, but there is a small car park at the top for those less able. We were lucky that we had a glorious afternoon of warm sunshine and we didn't go on a guided trip.

The highest Accessible Sea Cliffs in Europe are a must see and worth the 3 Kilometer trek for the view. Along the way there are many impressive views that are worth the detour. If the climb is too difficult if you are unfit or in a wheelchair, you can also drive to the viewing area by passing by the car parks on either side and opening the metal gate at the start of the pathway as long as you close it after you pass through

Do not miss these cliffs

These cliffs are a must see if you are in this part of the country.
We arranged sites to see on how accessible they were as I have a bad back and a gammy knee. When we arrived we seen lots of people walking towards the gate that blocked our entrance to drive up, but we asked in the shop and were told we could drive up no problem. It was the best decision we made for that entire journey. The walk is fairly steep and long and I definitely wouldn't have been able for it.

The views are beautiful when you get to the top. There is also a van selling ice cream, coffee, drinks etc and a little souvenir car.

I would much prefer these cliffs to the cliffs of moher.
With wild roaming sheep too and pure fresh air it really is beautiful. Definitely worth seeing.

Fantastic views

Did the full loop up the Pilgrims Path and around the cliffs, back to car park. Fantastic views if a tough enough climb. Took us 7 hours overall. Great to see the County Council doing work to make the area more accessible.

Definitely worth doin the full walk.

Give yourself a few hours and take in the breath-taking views as you climb higher and higher - they will be some of the most picturesque photos you will ever take.

This is not an easy climb but, it is not overly difficult either. There are plenty of stopping points and it just makes for such an enjoyable walk.

Fabulous views along the walk from the lower to upper car park areas. The views from the summit are excellent. The weather was dull but clear when we visited but that didn't dampen our experience.

Watch out for the World War 2 rock sign on your way back down the link road from the upper to lower car park. On the right side on a sharp corner close to half way back, you will see 71 EIRE spelt out in rocks on the grass. This was a symbol for over flying aircraft to herald Ireland's neutral status during the second world war.
