Conor Pass, Dingle Peninsula

4.8
#2 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.

  • The paper guides are a little scary about the access road to the Connor Pass, but actually is not very long and cars - not the camper vans! -pass without problem by being cautious. Once up there - wow - views to the North and the South of the peninsula - in good weather of course. So abstain if the sky is blocked. If you know which side to look so it's beautiful!

  • I was so impressed by the beauty of the landscape and lakes. The waterfall is very wonderfull even if it is not so high. We where hiking up the waterfall and was able to see a hidden glacier lake & high mountains that rise from the foggy weather.
  • One of the beautiful drive into wild Atlantic Dingle Peninsula. A mesh of clouds & mountains. At some places the road is very narrow, be ready to give pass accordingly. Also, do not lean to Fwd of the Cliffs for your own safety. 👍
  • Most incredible scenic route we drove throughout our 10-day trip on the Wild Atlantic Way!! MUST DO! Spectacular views on the climax, wonderful road to drive (if you like driving) and even waterfalls along the way up from North to South. Loved it!!!
  • Amazing view, nice payoff when you've cycled to it. So good I drove my pregnant wife back up that day so she could see the views. There was an ice-cream van there too on the second occasion...which as is well known, makes everything better.
  • WOW, such a beautiful drive! Many scenic overlooks but nothing beats the peak! You can see forever in either direction!

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.
