Small / tight road, with a fabulous view of the Atlantic and beautiful Irish countryside A wonderful drive -- we'll travel this road every time we're in the area. It's a MUST for any traveler in the Clifden / Westport area.

What can be said about this little road, It's fantastic all the way up. The views at the top are stunning. On a clear day you can see for miles. We can even see our caravan on site. It's an experience and we go up at least 4 times a year.

Drove the Sky Road out and back into Clifden and as the information we read had stated, this is a very beautiful drive that winds up and down the coast. There are several areas one can pull over for a snack, picnic overlooking the coast below, hike a bit or just enjoy the beauty of the area. It doesn't take that long an in the end one may continue on to the incredible Kylemore Abbey.

The scenery is breathtaking and the drive is challenging, which I enjoyed! This would be a great bike tour.

This is a nice short detour with some great views - as others have said, depending on where you've been you may want to skip it. You can either walk or drive it, I don't believe we spent more than an hour driving and taking pictures. Nice little detour if you have time.
