This road will take you from the beautiful Town of Kemare all the way to the Bantry Golf Course. It has High elevations and tunnels carved out of rock that i have not seen anywhere else in Ireland, You also pass through Glengariff where Maureen O'Hara maintained a residence and The Eccles Hotel that was built in the 1700's and has reopened after renovations. The hotel was a great stop for an afternoon snack before climbing back into the car for a return trip through the Rock Tunnels.

You are dumbfounded through a rock that look medieval and yet alluring in sight. Its a mixture of the old and new. Great sight

you get a full range of sizes on this bus from zippy motorcycles on tour to immense tour buses so keep an eye out on the road and one on the scenery. lots of twisty bits and it's a fun road to take.

If you are driving from Muckross House to Ladies' View and Moll's Gap and beyond, you will travel this road and go through the narrow tunnel. Be very careful and don't feel forced to drive the posted speed limit. You can pull over and let tailgaters pass. Be aware that if there is a bend in the road you are almost guaranteed that a car will be speeding around it toward you, so take are the bends with care. I did puncture a tire here mostly because I was intimidated by the tailgating cars and jerking to the left to avoid the cars zooming around the corners toward me on the other side. Take your time and feel free to stop as often as you like. There is no rush. Safe Travels.
