  • We took the Healy pass traveling between Kinsale and Kenmare. This followed the Wild Atlantic Way and was breath taking! The views from up there are not equaled! Sheep wander around with no fences, ea...  more »
  • Do you want to ride the winding narrow roads both up and down, you will receive your reward in this beautiful area. Could been a bit more places to stay on. We had bad luck with the weather with rain but it was definitely worth the effort. One fine day it must be even better.

  • Lovely little mountain pass, well surfaced and not too difficult. Rises about 1,000 feet before reaching the top and the descent over the other side. Head from south to north side for the best views
  • The road through Healy Pass on the Beara peninsula goes through some beautiful Irish 'wilderness' inhabited primarily by sheep but you may meet John O'Shea the shepherd if you are lucky. For folks not accustomed to small Irish roads, keep in mind that the road is very narrow but the landscape is free of trees so you can see well ahead if someone is coming the other way. We had no problems at all. If you are driving the Beara do not miss this beautiful drive. There is an amazing view from the top of the pass.
  • Scenic drive through some hills. Great views, nothing to do here though.
  • Fantastic views to cork and Kerry from here great in a fine day sheer wilderness , walk cycle drive
  • Beautiful views. Well worth a trip on this long windy road.. look out for the sheep!!
