My husband and I own Corvettes and this is a Corvette road except we did it this time in a Nissan X-tran ( like a US X-Terra). Big vehicle but so much fun. We did it twice while in the Clifden area just because we could. You can see forever from the top area. Just fun

this provides a great vista of the surrounding area along with a stunning ride to the lookout. At the top, it felt like a party more than just people going for the view.

We had a big van for this trip and it was 8 of us in there, including the driver. We stayed in Galway for 3 nights and we must have done this road at least 3 or 4 times. Absolutely marvelous. We were lucky to catch a reasonably nice springy weather and we tried to take pictures whenever we could.... More

A short 20 minute or so loop drive out of Clifden, great views over the inlet and bays, passing by pretty farms and boats on the beach, well worth the time it takes.

The Sky Road is the most fantastic location in the West of Ireland. You are better walking this road so that you can take in all its beauty. You will not get a nicer view on the Western Seaboard and the beautiful waves on the Atlantic. Next stop New York.

A short but beautiful drive on a gorgeous day. If ever in Clifden, be sure to take this in. Narrow roads but scenic view point has ample parking.

Due to the inclement nature of the weather we drove the loop and even as cloudy as it was some of the views were stunning. I am an experienced driver with 40 plus years experience but I would like to have met some of the mini bus drivers and offered them some advice on the bullying nature of their driving.There... More

Went for a drive round this beautiful loop on a perfect sunny afternoon! Although it can be a bit narrow at times, the scenery from this road is just breathtaking! Pick a sunny day and you will be amazed!

Sky Road Loop #1 is a nice bike ride. Leaving from Clifden it is a bit steep, but once on top, the ride is exhilarating. At the fork two miles from Clifden, be sure to look south to view the ruins of Clifden Castle. Take the upper fork. It is harder to climb, but the view at the top parking... More
