“Stunning.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

I travel this road several times a year on buisness and still look forward to traveling it each time. Just dont be in a hurry cause you'll be stuck behind someone going at 30 or 40 mph. Just relax and enjoy!!

“Fantastic views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

Definitely worth a drive. The views are spectacular but be careful driving as the road is very small and the driver will have a tendency to be distracted but the gorgeous scenery! A must do if in Killarney, this scenery is talked about around the world!

“Get home before dark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

This was a lovely drive, but it was dark on the way back to Killarney and rather nerve racking. Do it in the daylight.
