Conor Pass to Croaghskearda Loop walk is a moderate 3.5 hour (7km) walking route from Conor Pass to the summit of Croaghskearda Mountain at 608m, county Kerry in the south west of Ireland on the Wild Atlantic Way. This is relatively easy for a mountain walk as there is less than 200m ascent to the summit with absolutely spectacular scenery which is sure to inspire and invigorate. The views from start and the summit are breathtaking, as the glaciated landscape of mountains and corrie lakes comes into view.  On a good day there are views as far as the Aran Islands off County Galway.

The Conor Pass itself is Irelands highest open mountain pass and provides the most dramatic scenery over Brandon and Tralee Bays to the north and Dingle to the south. It is a narrow twisting road between Dingle and Kilmore Cross and therefore there are length and weight restrictions, and vehicles such as caravans, camper vans and trucks cannot use the pass.

This walk is relatively short but there are also many other longer and shorter walks in the area. Use our Map of Ireland and Sat Nav tool to get directions to the start point of this walk and use our detailed map and GPS on our App to find and follow the walking route and keep on track.
