If you are in Clifden this is a drive that should not be missed.There is a high road and a low road and obviously the views from the high road are more spectacular.Need great car when driving as road is narrow and winding.

This is one of the most amazing roads in Ireland and well worth a visit. If you want to experience the real splendour of wild rural Ireland then head for the sky road you won't be disappointed! There is a lot more to Ireland than just Temple Bar in Dublin and this road near Clifden has astounding views of mountains... More

We took this route after visiting beaches further up the coast. The views from the Sky Road are beautiful and we arrived in time to watch the sun beginning to set. Lovely.

I've taken this route a number of times on my motorcycle. This is an easy recommendation - don't miss this part of Ireland, no matter how you travel it's a must!

While the road is not very wide and is popular with tourists, it is definitely a must see, especially on a clear sunny day. The views will have you oohing and aahing and scrambling for your camera.

Beautiful especially on a sunny day. Bring the shades! Very nice ride, similar to the 17 mile drive in Carmel Pebble Beach area of California

Explore this 12km looped road on bike if possible. There's three rental bike shops to choose from (€12 daily). Pack a lunch and your camera. This trail is well signposted all the way round. Few hills at the start and then it levels off. The views are spectacular... ( 2hrs approx to do it )
