The view from the parking area at the top means the direction does not matter for overall views but the climb up the switchbacks on the narrow stretch is just so much more enticing than coming down it leaving Dingle. And as an added bonus...More

Conor pass is amazing. The road is only wide enough for one car. The sheep were running in front of our vehicle as we drove along. The view is spectacular. You can see water on both sides when you get to the top. There is...More

There are two ways into Dingle by car. The Connor Pass has breathtaking views. Also very steep narrow road.... "Road" at one point you will have to share a lane. So if you're in for an experience and beautiful views, this is for you.

This narrow, twisting road is the highest mountain pass in Ireland - and a Don't Miss drive if you're going into the Dingle Peninsula. The road is extremely narrow, especially closer to the pass (really single lane) so I would not recommend it for oversize...More

We passed through the Connor pass driving to Dingle from the Cliffs of Moher. We stopped for the scenic view in front of Lough Doon where there was a good waterfall and good pictures. We didn’t realize there is a great hike to the Lough...More

If you miss going through Connor Pass you really haven't seen the Dingle Peninsula. It is a beautiful drive to be taken slowly and treasured.

Very spectacular drive. Magnificent scenery! Had heard it was good but was better than anticipated. Take notice of advice given for vehicle size. Came close to here 2 years ago in a motorhome and advised not to use the pass and now can totally understand...More

Rugged Ireland at its best. Green upon green with winding goat tracks just wide enough for one car , Driving requires a lot of concentration , but views are rewarding

Most visitors will stop at Killarney and do the Ring of Kerry. Go another hour up the west coast of Ireland and take in the fantastic views of Dingle and the Dingle Penninsula. Less traveled and popular, this area is Ireland at its best. Narrow...More

We planned on going to Dingle from Galway without knowing much about the drive in advance. A friend had mentioned Conor Pass and we assumed it was an easy route through some mountains. When we got there we were pleasantly and terrifyingly surprised. The views...More

There's nothing like the Rocky Mountains in Ireland but this is fantastic for sweeping views of the island and the thrill of tiny roads.

I drive both ways but for a first timer, maybe Tralee to Dingle as you will be on the side of the road closer to the mountain than to the drop.
