About Sliabh Liag Boat Tours
We run tours to the Sliabh Liag Cliffs, the highest sea cliffs in Europe standing 600m (1972 feet ). We operate from April to October, and sometimes earlier or later if weather is ok. With our 2 boats we can carry 24 passengers. The tour lasts about one and a half hours, and we take in many wonderful sights.Sometimes we are joined by wild life, like dolphins, whales, seals, and in May and June we often see basking sharks feeding on the plankton.Guests can go for a swim in the clear waters near Sliabh Liag we can supply wetsuits if you think the water is cold most don't need them.Some people are lucky enough to be joined by dolphins. Sailing Times 10am 12noon 2pm 4pm 6pm and 8 am/pm if needed. Although I don't answer all reviews I appreciate the feedback . I only answer reviews that I feel do not reflect the tour and will try to correct anything negative that crops up. We are a small operation and I run it to the best of my ability. So don't be upset if I don't reply. Thank you Paddy

Wow! Just Wow! When we arrived another trip was just coming in. As soon as they got of the boats both boats were sterilised before the next gang got on board. The weather was just fabulous and the sea was relatively calm (so I thought anyway!) We were treated to THE most spectular views of the Slieve Liag Mountains. Kevin stopped a few times along the way to give us a history lesson which was very interesting to hear. He was very knowledgeable and a great bit of craic. If you want to go for a dip you are welcome to (although the Atlantic in September? BRrrrrrr). The whole tour lasted for around 1hr 45 minutes and for €25 per person that is phenomanel value for money and a thoroughly enjoyable experience. I have always known that Donegal is stunning but it really is a very special county. We enjoyed it so much that we have booked to go back in November - all going well!!

Fairly rocky weather but we were delighted to get out. Boat spotless, cleaned as we watched. My 10yo jumped into the sea near the cliffs, very chatty good humoured host. Defo worth a few hours. Were actually almost 2 hours out on the boat.
