not to be missed if traveling by car in the area. The sight from the bottom is larger than life and when you reach the top, you cant take your eyes off the view. Bring lunch and a thermos and chill on the benches looking down if you can.

Exceptional View

Truly fabulous scenery on your way from Sliabh Liag to Maghera Cave or beach. We were so lucky with a sunny day. What a view as you travel down from the summit to the roadway near Maghera.

A must drive along little bendy roads surrounded by such beauty. Located outside the town of Ardara, Co. Donegal. A great look out/picnic area overlooking the pass and the Atlantic Ocean.

Beautiful drive in the mountains
Oct 2019
A nice drive through the mountains with a variety of views. There are several areas to easily pull over and park so you can fully enjoy the views. Stop at the National Park in the pass for a gentle hike around the lake to the castle or take the bus out to the castle. The castle gardens are amazing.

Beautiful Mountains!

After a white-knuckle drive on narrow and winding roads through the mountain pass the rest stop at Glengesh Pass was a comfort and a visual treat.
