  • If you are going to Dingle from either Killarney or Limerick, most route will keep you on the N86, but sometimes you just have to tell google maps/apple maps/etc to bugger off and take the route...

  • Left Dingle having approached originally from the East so didn't really know what to expect. Even suspected it might be a pass between mountains. The reality was far more impressive. There are...

  • The road looks grand and wide to start, then narrows down dramatically. There is parking part way up where you can stop and scramble up to a loch, and a viewpoint further up. Totally worth the trip

  • Even with heavy fog and strong winds, this place is a must if you're ever visiting the Dingle Peninsula. Bring a warm coat and prepare for some impressive views on both sides of the pass. There's a small part of the road that is very narrow near the top where drivers need to be super careful.
  • Beautiful overlooks into the mountain scape. Driver beware very narrow roads looking over cliff drops, quite terrifying for anyone afraid of heights. At the pull off point with a small waterfall you can climb up the rocks to a beautiful mountain lake.
  • An amazing climb up and over. Steep sides and only wide enough for one vehicle in places so not for the faint hearted! Well worth it though - lovely views from the top.
  • Amazing views of below, if you are not driving and not a passenger that hates heights! The road approaching the pass from either side is just a normal road. It is only at the pass itself that it gets rather narrow. There are some pulloffs to get a view, but they are not large and they were all full. Still, an enjoyable drive.
  • Lovely views of the north and south dingle peninsula from high up. Be mindful of the single lane road heading north from the pass. Other drivers are very good of giving way when it's very tight.
