The Conor Pass
An Conair

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.
