The R560 in County Kerry is a loop off the N86 running from Knockglass More to Dingle by way of Stradbally and the Conor Pass.

Route

Connor Pass warning sign

This is a beautiful alternative route to the N86. You start in Dingle and start climbing up to the Connor Pass. Warnings of things to come start early on with warning signs to tell you the route is not suitable for large vehicles. You reach the top of the hill and there is a parking area on the left that is well worth stopping at to see the views down to the coast line below. This is the end of the road if you are in a large vehicle, as the road now narrows considerably. You are now going downhill, but with cliff faces on the left, and even a waterfall comes very close. This section can be quite slow if there is traffic coming in the other direction. After a while, the road then opens up again and stays this way until you reach the N86 again.
