“breathtaking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2014

Driving was a bit tricky at points but the views are stunning! Worth driving in both directions to really appreciate all angles of the view.

“Wild Atlantic Way - Sky Road”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014

One of my favourite drives in Ireland. I always take this road home - the long way round when coming back from Clifden. The windier the better, and so good for the soul. Not too good for faint hearted with a tendancy towards Vertigo though. DO NOT MISS THIS and breathe deeply of the fresh Atlantic Air.

“Stunning views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

So worth the drive! The views were spectacular. Watch out for sheep in the road though! Quite narrow in spots so take your time.
