In good weather, it's well worth driving over Conor Pass to take advantage of the beautiful views (looking both north and south). We particularly enjoyed parking our car at the small waterfall (1 mile from summit, on the north side), and then taking a 5-minute...More

Spectacular views in all directions! Bring your binoculars and you can see to Galway! We were blessed to have gorgeous sunny weather in October! Dingle Peninsula is a special place!

You definitely want to make the effort to drive this route. The scenery is spectacular and lots of wide open spaces with beautiful vistas. A lot of folks comment on the "harrowing" drive but I really didn't think it was that bad. Yes, roads are...More

The drive doesn't take nearly as long as it looks on the map and is easier than some people make it out to be. The drive up the south slopes from Dingle are super easy, not windy, and two full lanes. When you get to...More

Wowsers...I think I got a few more gray hairs on this drive. Absolutely beautiful and must do, but anyone nervous about heights will probably freak out a bit. Very worth it but wouldn’t do it again!!!!!

There's nothing like the Rocky Mountains in Ireland but this is fantastic for sweeping views of the island and the thrill of tiny roads.
