Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a beautiful spot to admire the green and lush land. It is worth the drive.

However, do park in the small area for parking .. park anywhere else and it is dangerous.

Scenic and peaceful setting. Looking over the pass you have a sense it could go on forever. Green and lush landscape to be seen.

This beautiful pass is well-worth your time as you drive along the Wild Atlantic Way. The panoramic vista as you drive up the side of the glen is stunning (a little like the glens of Antrim). And when you reach the open moorland at the top, it's quite barren and rugged. Lovely, beautiful & wild

Loved this drive, but my wife hated it. We were the only car on the road throughout the entire drive and stopped to take some photos. The road is narrow and winding and climbs up with a drop off on the passenger side, which is why she was nervous during the ride.

We did this drive in conjuction with the Assaranca Waterfall and Maghera Beach, doing this last.

Doing all three took about 3-4 hours.

Had a few photos, but Tripadvisor needs to fix their glitch in uploading.

Nice views of a waterfall in the distance flowing down the valley, a cool stone bridge and views down the pass from halfway up and at the top.

Beautiful views on way back down of valley.
Road is windy but easy to drive. Lovely viewing spot to stop for photos.

This is a breath-taking spot to take a photo! It is reminiscent of The Sound of Music. Incredible view of the valley.

If you are lucky with the weather and the parking, you will be rewarded with some amazing views.
But please don't park on the road even if you do own a BMW!

Stunning scenic drive through the glacier pass of Glengesh. Although we drove on a misty wet day, it was still magical, the views still breathtaking as you made your way through the valley driving through the mist. Such a gorgeous driving route.

not to be missed if traveling by car in the area. The sight from the bottom is larger than life and when you reach the top, you cant take your eyes off the view. Bring lunch and a thermos and chill on the benches looking down if you can.

Truly fabulous scenery on your way from Sliabh Liag to Maghera Cave or beach. We were so lucky with a sunny day. What a view as you travel down from the summit to the roadway near Maghera.
