“Unbelievable Site, Cherished Each Twist and Sheep in Sight!”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

A gorgeous site to behold, a jaw dropping site if coming from Ardara to the coast line, otherwise an equally majestic trip down the pass.

Worth seeing on each side of the road, with sheep and hillsides to adore and look forward too. On the top of the pass, there is an adorable picnic site at the top which simply must be given some time to savor.

A glorious accident which won't be forgotten for years to come!

“the Pass in Donegal”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Was taken by surprise today as wasn't expecting quite such an exhilarating experience.It was a shade scary but the spectacular views made the rather hairy drive down through pass all the more worth it.Take your time if you're up for it and enjoy it.

“True Donegal scenery!”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

This is a lovely drive if you are in the area and well worth the visit. The scenery is beautiful- lots of opportunities for different views as you descend down through the pass.

“Stunning”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

Glengesh (and it's lesser known sister granny) are superb for a walk/cycle or drive. The scenery is breathtaking winter or summer.

Make sure you are not a nervous driver…..if so just take it slow and pull in well in advance if you see another car coming.

An absolute must if you are in the Ardara area.
