First off I will say that the Healy Pass is extremely beautiful and this review doesn't have to do with the quality of the drive. DRIVER BEWARE: This has to do with an older man that came up to us on a tractor while we...More

The Healy Pass winds (literally) its way across the Beara Peninsula. We left the main road before Castletownbere and headed up the twisting but spectacular road to the statue. There is a small shop here in summer but it doesn't have much. On the other...More

As you see from the top of the pass, this is an adventure going down. Please watch the sheep on the road and the bicyclists. All can enjoy the windy road. Great views.

An unexpected glorius view of the Beara Pennisula and Kerry mountain ranges from the hilltop beside the mountain pass. Stop the car and get out. Scramble up the rocks and through the bog and take your camera....you'll be rewarded. Just beautiful.

Healy pass stunning a must to see and experience in the bright sunshine and a slow drive being careful of the sheep which wander on the roads.

This was definitely a fun drive and was truly beautiful. There were not very many cars on the road when I took the pass which made it a wonderful experience.

We drove from south to north across Healy Pass on a drive around the Beara Peninsula where our end destination for the day was Killarney (starting from Bantry). It is a great drive up and over the pass with excellent views on both sides as...More

Worth a visit if the weather is ok. We took a detour to the Healy Pass when travelling from Cork airport to Killarney and we struck lucky with the weather. Great views! The roads are narrow but there was hardly any traffic in October.

This was one of the highlights of our entire 2 week trip around Ireland. Photos do not do this place justice, especially on a nice day like the one we had. Just take it slow and watch out for sheep!
