4.9/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web
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 almost went through here by accident, and I"m glad we did. There are some amazing views of both sides of the Dingle Peninsula. There's a small lake about 200 meters away and up from the carpark, di...  read more »

  • Leaving Dingle to go north, I took the Conor Pass, despite it being a bit foggy. I had heard horror stories of the one-car lane hugging the mountain with only a low stone wall on the outside separatin...  read more »
  • A must see. Absolutely amazing views. Stop at the viewing point n climb up to see Pedlars Lake aka the secret lake. Really beautiful. Can't wait to go back, even with the scary drive!
  • Amazing little drive. The views were beautiful, the experience of driving a single lane while on the right side of the car and the surprisingly strong wind at the very top was a lot of fun.
  • Drive across it a few years back. Challenging due to thick fog, a drop to one side and very solid stone to the other. Even with the limited views, worth it. Want to revisit the area soon.
  • Don't go to Dingle without driving up through Conor pass at least once. The views from the top of the mountain with the water on both sides is just breathtaking. There is a pull off point on the right as you go down the north side of the peak where it looks like a rocky wall above you. Stop there! It's an easy scramble up the rocks to a hidden lake an a gorgeous natural amphitheater. The prettiest place I've been in Ireland.
  • Highest mountain pass in Ireland! Spectacular views and different every time dependent on the weather. Be warned the road can get very narrow and not for the faint hearted! Needs to be driven with caution and will be closed during winter months.
