A Kerry Wild Atlantic Way Discovery Point

Conor Pass, County Kerry

The drive through Conor Pass is considered to be one of the most scenic in Ireland, and even better on a clear day! The road is narrow, but there are plenty of places to pull in to allow traffic to pass. At the top there is a car park with a great view of the valley and lakes.

A short walk from the car park of about 20 minutes will reward you with the discovery of a hidden lake at the summit, only a small flow of water visible from the road hints to its presence.

The many geological features, textbook corries and such makes this trip a geography lesson with a difference.

The bicycle ascent to the pass is for the brave and one of the most famous and challenging climbs in Ireland.
