Worth a visit if the weather is ok. We took a detour to the Healy Pass when travelling from Cork airport to Killarney and we struck lucky with the weather. Great views! The roads are narrow but there was hardly any traffic in October.

A driving around with a native makes far more pleasurable. No concerns but to say " stop here" Lovely when rain ( which is intermittent) isnt keeping one from walking more or snapping photos. Dont depend on good cell phone connectivity here.

The Healy Pass is awesome. The views are fantastic, and it's the quintessential Irish countryside at its best. I highly recommend this to anyone in the area. You won't regret it at all. Also, keep an eye out for the gift shop, Don's Mountain Cabin;...More
