Conor Pass, Dingle Peninsula

4.8
#2 of 7 in Nature in Dingle Peninsula
Geologic Formation Nature / Park
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.

  • On the road to Dingle, feel free to make a detour to this route: a little difficult to access either (but the buses and trucks are not allowed which limits the worries) but the rise (feel free to you stop when you can enjoy the show) and the arrived at the top (parking provided for this purpose) are spectacular.

  • Very interesting to drive up there. Offers some stunning views. At the pass there is parking available, that allows for easy picture taking. Can be extremely windy at times, so beware.
  • A very narrow mountain pass road between Tralee and Dingle in County Kerry. The pass itself is only the width of a car but two way traffic but no worries are motorists take turns letting each other through. An extra bonus is a stop at Peddlers Lake in the way which can only be described as a Piece of Heaven on Earth.
  • Spectacular views. Dont look over the edge when driving! Take it slowly
  • The drive up the hill is a very fun, smooth ride and the view from the top are a beautiful look at Dingle and the surrounding area.
  • Breathtaking stop along the Wild Atlantic way. Definitely a must.

Where to stay in Dingle

Dingle Town represents a relaxed, artistic destination known for having plenty of affordable bed and breakfasts and other specialty accommodations. Many of these cluster right in the town's center, although the town also has a number of hotels, hostels, and other lodging for tourists. Here it's even normal to stumble upon a pub offering accommodation. A more luxurious (and often costly) option for travelers taking in the beauty of this peninsula is to stay in a scenic guesthouse overlooking Dingle Bay, which you can find in or right outside of town.
