Conor Pass, Dingle Peninsula

4.8
#1 of 9 in Nature in Dingle Peninsula
Get your head in the clouds at Conor Pass, the highest mountain pass in Ireland. Your journey follows a winding, twisting asphalt road that sometimes only allows enough room for one car to pass at a time. Along the way you'll see waterfalls, lakes, and cliffs; the high altitude allows for magnificent views of the coast. Avoid this trip in bad weather because of the road conditions.

  • We got to Conor Pass and the views were amazing. Until the clouds started rolling in.. There are many hiking trails around the area, and I wish we had time to explore some of them. The roads are typic...  more »
  • Narrow roads with beautiful views and some wild life along the way! Caution with narrow lanes. Pullover and let the experiences left sided road drivers pass! Lol!  more »
  • The view from the parking area at the top means the direction does not matter for overall views but the climb up the switchbacks on the narrow stretch is just so much more enticing than coming down it...  more »

  • One way traffic only at the top of the pass means you wait your turn to drive. On the north side of the pass, there is a pull off where a small waterfall can be seen from the road. Park there and hike up over the hill for an incredible few of a glacially scoured rock face which also has a beautiful small lake - the source of the water fall seen from the road.
  • Connor Pass is a beautiful spot! If you have time, you definitely want to take a hike here. If you approach the pass from the south (Dingle side), the road is quite good and two lanes. On the north side the road becomes quite narrow for a short distance. There is a small parking area at the top of the pass.
  • Beautiful scenery with a car park at the top so you can stop and take it all in. Very narrow roads roads.
  • Such a beautiful area but be warned of the traffic during the summer months as the road is narrow. Would recommend stopping at the waterfall and hiking for 5 minutes up to Peddler's Lake to get stunning shots
  • Favorite part of my Ireland trip, scenery is fantastic if you can get up here on a sunny clear day. Definitely hike up the mountain next to the parking lot. At the top there is a big pile of rocks and offers fantastic views.
