Fodor's Expert Review Sky Road

Clifden Scenic Drive Fodor's Choice

Drive the aptly named Sky Road to really appreciate Clifden's breathtaking scenery. Signposted at the west end of town, this high, narrow circuit heads west, giving views of several offshore islands, before looping back to the N59 after about 10 km (6 miles) alongside phenomenal views of Clifden Bay's precipitous shores. The Sky Road loops beneath to the Beach Road, where hikers can enjoy the Connemara shoreline.
