“The views are incredible”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

This is a fairly narrow road out of Clifden which winds around the nearby headland. Its not always easy to pass on-coming traffic without someone reversing so take care and don't rush. The views as the roadway climbs up the headland are as good as you'll see anywhere. If you're in Clifden or going from Clifden to Westport this is a 30/45 minute 'detour' thats well worth taking.

“Spectacular view of the Irish coast”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

Small / tight road, with a fabulous view of the Atlantic and beautiful Irish countryside A wonderful drive -- we'll travel this road every time we're in the area. It's a MUST for any traveler in the Clifden / Westport area.

“Sky Road”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

What can be said about this little road, It's fantastic all the way up. The views at the top are stunning. On a clear day you can see for miles. We can even see our caravan on site. It's an experience and we go up at least 4 times a year.

“SEP 2013 VISIT”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Drove the Sky Road out and back into Clifden and as the information we read had stated, this is a very beautiful drive that winds up and down the coast. There are several areas one can pull over for a snack, picnic overlooking the coast below, hike a bit or just enjoy the beauty of the area. It doesn't take that long an in the end one may continue on to the incredible Kylemore Abbey.
