  • Sliabh Liag - One Of The Highest Sea Cliffs In Europe

    Sliabh Liag known as the highest accessible sea cliffs in Europe reaching a height of 1,972 feet that is almost twice as high as the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Corrie Lake Sliabh Liag Sliabh Liag is located in South West Donegal, approximately 3 hours drive from Belfast, 3 hours from Galway and 4 hours from Dublin. Donegal is the most northerly county of Ireland on the North West Coast. The Belfast naturalist Robert Lloyd Praeger wrote in 1939 A tall mountain of nearly 2000 feet, precipitous on its northern side, has been devoured by the sea till the southern face forms a precipice likewise, descending on this side right into the Atlantic from the long knife-edge which forms the summit. The traverse of this ridge, the "One Man's Path", is one of the most remarkable walks to be found in Ireland - not actually dangerous, but needing a good head and careful progress on a stormy day....The northern precipice, which drops 1500 feet into the coomb surrounding the Little Lough Agh, harbours the majority of the alpine plants of Slieve League, the most varied group of alpines to be found anywhere in Donegal. Watch this breathtaking drone footage below by Joe Langan. Did you know? Studies of plate tectonics tell us that Ireland once had a very different setting within world geography. In fact some 450 million years ago north-west Ireland belonged to a landmass (Laurentia) that is now mainly represented in North America, whereas the rest of Ireland lay beyond an ocean several thousand miles to the south and belonged to another plate. As the two plates moved toward each other, a mountain-building phase developed that is sometimes known as the Caledonian or Caledonide.

  • Ireland’s Mysterious & Breathtaking Murder Hole Beach

    Boyeeghter Bay, commonly known as Murder Hole Beach, is one of the best beaches in Ireland. Murder Hole has often been considered one of Ireland’s mysterious beaches. Don't be put off by the name if you are looking for a special beach this is for you. The beach is situated on the Melmore head peninsula beside Downings in County Donegal, Ireland. It has cliffs, hills, dunes, and small caves. When the tide is in there are two beaches, which merge into one when the tide is out. There is a small tidal island roughly 15 meters from the shore, called Rough Island. @philaicken The official name of the beach, Boyeeghter Strand, derives from the Irish Trá Bhá Íochtair meaning the strand of the lower (or northern) bay. The common name of the beach, Murder Hole Beach, is rumoured to originate from the 1800s, when a young woman reputedly fell from a cliff near the beach. Other reports suggest that the name is derived from how the dangerous currents make swimming perilous. Watch the fabulous drone footage below that really captures this mysterious and beautiful beach. Map There is no straight road or signs that lead you to this beach. The beach is accessed across farmland with livestock so please be respectful of this and note that no dogs are allowed and its very dangerous to swim at here. As would be expected if you do visit please leave it as you found it and take all rubbish home. Taken From Donegal News In a bid to avoid a repeat of last year they have had to close off access to the beach. They stress though that it is not their intention to keep it that way. As soon as certain issues are ironed out the Murder Hole will be reopened to the public. Family issues appeal over access to Murder Hole beach - Donegal News
