Had reservations about driving this mountain pass, but it was so worth it! Roads were no narrower than already experienced in Ireland, and the views from the top to both coasts are breathtaking. Be sure to take in the waterfall at the top (posting photo)...More

This was a nice surprise on our way into Dingle. Many people were pulled over to the side of the road, high up on a mountain pass, looking at the view below. Valleys, some mist and lots of green. We were there in July 2011.
