Lovely views and a pleasant (if a little dicey) drive with plenty of sharp bends on the descent. There is a viewing area where you can park and relax and take in the beautiful scenery.

Fabulous twisting road with some scary drops. There are a couple of car parks and an ancient shrine to stop at. I'm glad we didn't meet any other traffic, could be tricky when busy.

Provides for a wonderful drive and offers panoramic scenic views. If heading up the peninsula to Malin Head, I would highly recommend taking this route from Fort Dunree. Well worthwhile fort be scenery provided.

We lucked out with a glorious sunny day and the landscape was stunning. Also lots of sheep and adorable lambs ambling along!

One of the things I love most about Ireland is the scenic drives which take you way up over magnificent 'Gaps' and this is a good one. Keep an eye out for the Pilgrim point.

Yes. It may be a little tight in places, but you should have no problems.

Should be fine, a coffee truck sits in the car park halfway down now so if they can tow that you’ll be fine. I’ve also seen camper vans pootiling up
