The Conor Pass is the
highest mountain pass in Ireland, and provides the most dramatic and scenic way of
entering or leaving Dingle.
This narrow, twisting road runs between the town of Dingle and Kilmore Cross on
the north side of the peninsula, where roads fork to Cloghane/Brandon or Castlegregory.
The views from the road are breathtaking, as the glaciated landscape of mountains
and corrie lakes comes into view. From the scenic carpark at the summit there are views as far as the
Aran Islands off County Galway.
Due to the nature of the road, there are length and weight restrictions, and vehicles
such as caravans, camper vans and trucks cannot use the pass.
