There are a few beautiful spots along the twisty wee road up to Moll's Gap and plenty of stop off points for photos - ladies view being one. This is old Rustic ireland - albeit with a road through it. Worth it!

If you're driving Ireland, this road is a must do. Incredible views and twisting roads, be careful on here especially if you are new to Irish roads.

Some reviewers on tripadvisor must be virtual tourists? The Old Kenmare Road is an old drovers' route between Killarney and Kenmare used to bring butter and other products from the hills to the towns.

Wonderful in the summer time as the weather was fabulous and the growth you can see all around you is amazing, beware the sheep everywhere, and the mini waterfalls in the rocks are wonderful

Amazing road and fantastic scenery...love to drive this road taking it slow and admiring the scenery. Quite a feat of engineering blasting through the rock to create the tunnels and compares to any of the mountain roads you find in Switzerland and Italy. Now living in the area I intend to explore the area more fully as I noted that... More

You cannot go wrong driving anywhere in Ireland and this is no exception. I loved the green fields everywhere, sheep and cows dotting the countryside. We were even lucky enough to see a few walking down the road. :) They are so darn cute !
