“a nice drive, a great walk”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

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.

“scary”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

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.
