Such a relaxing drive, with a nice carpark to stop and have a stretch of the legs :) Make sure your breaks are in good condition! :)

“Stunning Views + a 'Magic Road'”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

The Mamore Gap is part of the 'Inishowen 100' - a 100 mile route around the Inishowen Peninsula in County Donegal. At the peak of Mamore Gap is a holy well as well as a shrine to the Virgin Mary. Be sure to stop here because the plaque also tells about the 'Magic Road' below.

As you drive toward the sea, watch for a white marker at your left. When you get to it, stop your car, put it in neutral, and take your foot off the brake. You will roll up hill.

The drive is phenomenal- truly part of the Irish experience.
