If you're going to Dingle, you definitely have to drive over the Conor Pass. It's narrow road leads you to great views and gives a good impression of Ireland's nature and beauty.

Here's the best way to experience Conor Pass. IF you're driving from Killarney, take R563 to R561. See the sights along the Dingle Peninsula, including Inch Beach and the town of Dingle. Do the drive around Slea Head Drive, making your way back to Dingle. When you get back into Dingle, there are signs for Conor Pass. If you're coming... More

This road is, indeed, too narrow and winding for busses and lorries but, with passing bays fairly frequent, is quite straightforward for cars. From the large carpark at the top of the pass the views in both directions are stupendous and well worth any extra care that needs to be taken with the driving.

After reading many of the TA reviews we left it to our B&B host to make the decision if the weather was in our favour to cross Conor Pass. He was spot on with his weather prediction and we did encounter a passing rain cloud at the top of the mountain.(We had also made the decision that if we could... More

Pic a cloudless day like we enjoyed to tour Conor Pass, the views are like heaven. Be cautious and know when to get off the road once visibility ceases. There can be very dense fog so very narrow and twisting cliffside roads to the summit are dangerous. No tour buses or trucks over 2 tons allowed for good reason. Allow... More

No joking - I thought for sure we were going to die!! When the owner of the B & B told us NOT to go this way we should have turned around! Unfortunately you get to the point of no return...do be aware of roaming sheep and cattle. I cannot say what the views were like as my eyes were... More

We went on a very windy, with spurts of rain day. Our B & B host assure us that the single track section of the road was only 1-2 miles. It was and we didn't encounter any cars coming from the opposite direction! The scenery is beautiful, tho not as dramatic as the Slea Head. There's a pull-off where there... More
