This drive was recommended by an Irish friend from Canada. Absolutely lovely views of the sea, farms, stone walls, horses, old stone buildings, and wild fuschia. We parked the car at one point and walked, I wish we had walked more. I stopped and talked to a local who was very friendly and met a border collie who was guarding the road with his chicken friend.

Drove the sky road on a clear day. Wonderful views. Driving is not much fun, very narrow road hanging over the cliffs, but worth the effort.

Chris O'Neill's taxi service can provide a lovely drive along Sky Road and give you the opportunity to enjoy the view while hearing about local sights.

two options, the high road and low road, take the high road and pull off at the viewing point - spectacular views on a clear day.

Beautiful drive, amazing views and picture opportunities. The lower and upper sky roads are both worth taking the time to enjoy.
