Dolphin watching at Slieve League, Ireland

One of the highlights of my tour through county Donegal in Ireland was visiting the cliffs of Slieve League. These are the highest in Europe, raising from sea level up to over 600 meters! To get the best view, we went on a boat ride with to see the cliffs from the ocean. As an added bonus, a group of Dolphins decided to join us for the ride! They really put on a show for us, making the boat tour that much more special. Check out this video I created to get an idea of what it was like.

Hi Jasper,

Wow, how cool is that. I love dolphins. I find it neat that they thrive in these waters, which I imagine must be cold? Way cool stuff, keep sharing the awesome videos AND living the internet lifestyle.

Hi Ryan, thanks for commenting! Yeah dolphins thrive in all sorts of waters, tropical to arctic. I’ve been on dolphins watching tours in Iceland even!

Hi Jasper ,

Thanks for sharing your experience .The view at the Slieve League is fantastic, even better when you get company of Dolphins . I have seen them at several locations around the country , if you get a chance you should go to West Cork , it’s paradise for all who love marine mammals.
