Conor Pass--Dingle--Where is it?

Would like to drive, via Conor Pass, into Dingle from Tralee.... I have a current AARoad Atlas of Ireland, but am not finding this route! It is R560? RS book has R569 noted, but I am not finding R569 on the map! Maybe Conor Pass is not a on a map! Any help appreciated! Thanks so much! Karen

I remember the Conor Pass being difficult to find on a map. I just went to Google Maps and the road number does not show up, though it does drop a pin right at the pass. Take a look at this link, you can see the location clearly on it; appears to be on R560. One thing is for sure, if you get to the area, you'll go over the Conor Pass. It's spectacular.

It's on the road from Dingle to Cloghane.

Just take the coastal route 560 off of the N86 along the Tralee Bay. If you do that you can't miss it.

The lasy bit over the pass is single lane so there is a bit of cooperative "we get to go for a while, then they get to go for a while" but since the turn out for the little waterfall is on the lower side people are stopping anyway. Everything went without a hitch when we did it.

At the waterfall turn out, hike up the hill for about 5 minutes. Gorgeous glacial lake.
