“stunning view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

Went up to the one man's pass and slightly further. Decided not to go to the summit due to advisory notices. Nevertheless, the stunning view of the cliffs and coast line made the trip worth it. If you can't walk too far, you can drive up to the second carpark through the gate.

“Excellent views without Cliffs of Moher tourism”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

We were lucky and the day we visited the weather was great. We walked up and back and it is a longer walk and very steep at the beginning but not impossible. Driving a car to the top is definitely an option. Although not driving, we thought the road would be fairly easy to drive (despite reviews indicating the opposite). For directions to the location, we stopped at Killybegs Tourist Information and were given a sheet of paper with specific instructions.

“BUNGLASS SEA CLIFFS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

Much more stunning than the Cliffs of Moher! 1972 feet above the sea makes for awe-inspiring views!

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

Great adventure for our family! We read the helpful hint about going through the gate to the second car park area ~ invaluable advise. We hiked up the to very top - a must! The view of the valley below is almost as great as the view of the ocean. The ride there in our rental car was great fun and added to the adventure. One of the highlights of our trip to Ireland.
