“Great scenic drive”

Lovely looped route that took in the best views in the area.travelling on this also helped us get our bearings and there weren't too many Tour Busses, so it was a relaxing drive.

“beautiful sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

When driving the Sky Road Loop, we were lucky to have a beautiful evening, with hardly any clouds. We decided to stay at the viewpoint until sunset, and we were not disappointed. The view of the sun sinking into the Atlantic Ocean was superb. At dusk, the light is much better than at mid-day, so go there after dinner!

“Great road trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

This road is well worth the winding narrow roads that are the sky road. The views, especially by the Clifden end of the road are magnificient. Would highly reccomend this road.

“absolutely stunning views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

We are so glad we did this drive. The views and scenery are simply stunning- our pictures will never do it justice. It gives a great appreciation for the beauty and farmland and way of life along the ocean in Ireland. It is a narrow drive and you have to be careful-especially when you are new to driving on the left but worth every minute!

“Beautiful drive in Connemara area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

We drove the upper Sky Road and loved it. I would highly recommend this drive. Beautiful scenery for miles. We did not have much traffic so we were really able to enjoy the views and pull off and stop along the way.
