The Caha Pass is a mountain pass over the Caha Mountains on the N71 between Cork and Kerry, at the eastern end of the Beara peninsula. It has a maximum altitude of 332m.

It was opened in 1842 and at the time known locally as The New Line.

In addition to the pass itself, on the Kerry side there are multiple tunnels carved into the line of the rock that the road narrows and passes through.
