“Nice but not spectacular”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

After taking several outstanding roads farther north on Connemara along R335 and several of the seaside roads north of Letterfrack, this crowded road was just average. The views were nice but vehicle and bicycle traffic was heavy and the road just okay. If you have the time, head farther north.

“Highlight”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Went here on a beautiful evening while on hols in Galway region. It was the highlight of our holiday. The views are amazing - blue sky hitting of the blue sea, gorgeous gorgeous! Its just outside Clifden. It was very busy the evening we were there but theres ample parking and lots of space for pics.

“One of Ireland's most breathtaking roads”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

The Sky road takes one along the coast and above Clifden, with simply stunning views over the Atlantic. The viewpoint at the very top is one of the prettiest places I have ever seen in my life and surely the best Ireland has to offer. It's quite windy up there, just to warn you.
