The drive itself won't take that long. What will take you a long time though is getting swept away in the views of Clifden Bay, the Atlantic Ocean, of the mountains in Connemara known as the 12 Bens, which range from 2000 ft to 3000 ft tall. The sky road is even short enough that it can be biked or even walked in a day. There are several places to pause to take in the scenery, snap photos, and enjoy the surroundings.

Great for biking and quiet contemplation. The views are awe inspiring and not heavily traveled. Don't miss this amazing vista.

I ran along the Sky Road. It brought me to the most spectacular views of the ocean! Lovely scenery the entire run!

The scenery along this road out of Clifden is truly spectacular. Best to go in the evening for an amazing sunset over the Atlantic.

Just do it, but with great care and enjoy, best at sunrise or sunset and follow the signs or you could end up a long way from home.
