“Breathtaking”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

What a view?
The Road at first is just like any other Irish country side Road, but as you climb and the fields give way to rolling hills; then the Atlantic Ocean comes into view wow!

“Lovely views, but the drivers.....”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

Fabulous views but difficult to drive as you meet a lot of rental cars hogging the road who freeze/panic when they meet a car coming against them.

“Gorgeous Scenery”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

Beautiful drive with amazing scenery. This road takes you along the water so that you can see the gorgeous water views as well as the amazing countryside. Well worth the drive.

“Upper road allows for some of the most beautiful views anywhere.”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

We took both the lower and upper roads. Both beautiful but the upper had a pull off that allowed drivers to stop for pics and take in the beauty.
