No trip to Clifden and surrounds would be complete without a round trip here, taking in the stunning views of the various peninsulas and breakers further out, with the aqua marine sea below. Worth going off road to one of the handful of hidden beaches

Had a great drive in the afternoon when it was surprisingly sunny! Went all the way to the west end and was amazed at the rough seas with no wind...we were lucky. We stopped at the SAT/NAV road that went into the ocean and saw the tide was out and walked all over the sand bar and even drove out to island omni.

Very narrow road but amazing views. You can drive on down to the other side. Worth the stop at the top.

Unfortunately the weather recently in Clifden was dire, and I'm sure we didn't get to enjoy the full splendour of the scenic Sky Road loop because of this, but what we did see through the dull skies and windy, rainy conditions was absolutely gorgeous. It's quintessential viewing when in the west coast of Ireland. The views of the Atlantic from the rugged coastline were just brilliant, and there wasn't a sinner in sight to spoil the look. When Ireland decides to have another heatwave like last summer, or even just let the sun out for a bit, get yourself to Conamara and drive along the Sky Road, you'll see for yourself.

Drove it twice! Once to get a feel for the road. A second time to really see the sights! Told about it by local gal Kirsty McCoy!
