We cracked it lucky and it was mainly sunny as we did the Slea Head Drive so he scenery was spectacular. The driving was a little hairy though as the roads are just over single lane and passing oncoming traffic requires a lot of good...More

We did the Shea Head Drive which is a loop of a drive with unbelievable views.. It took us around 90 minutes which included plenty of photo stops on route. The scenery was stunning. I would advise that you travel clockwise so you are travelling...More

Never knew this drive existed but just completed it and it’s definitely worth doing. Fantastic views throughout and multiple stop off viewing points. Getting a day with nice weather would be best but would still be doable if weather not great

We took this drive as it was laid out in our Rick Steves' Ireland book. It was well worth half-a-day to make the drive. You could even make it longer if you wanted to stop more often. We stopped a number of times, walked the...More

Amazing views starting from Dingle travel clock wise along a very narrow road as the large Tour Coaches travel this direction. You don't want to meet one of them. there is very few places to pass. Enjoy the drive

This is one of Ireland’s most scenic roads, and traverses historic sites, Gaeltacht (Irish speaking villages), Hollywood movie locations, close views of the Blasket Islands, and distant views of the Skellig Islands. The vistas are awesome! The circuit route is part of the Wild Atlantic...More

Stunning, tranquil environment with some amazing vistas. Hike up to some of the vantage points well worth the extra time.

You can do a 1/2 hour excursion out to Gallarus Oratory or a full day drive around Slea Head complete with hiking, or anything in between. If you have a car and you are in Dingle, or going there, definitely plan on visiting Slea Head.

The Slea Head drive winds around the peninsula and offers numerous stops to visit famine cottages (we skipped this), Beehive Huts (these are cool), and several pulloffs that offer photo opps.

The scenery and coastline are incredible. I would suggest this is the number one thing to do in Dingle. I can’t describe enough how incredible it was. Something more stunning to see around every corner!

Certainly, as long as you're not making stops along the way. Depending on the time of year, you may want to go straight to the ferry and then after the island drive the Slea Head. Plus, if you have time there is a fabulous... More

We drove with the busses. We left a bit ahead of them around 8:30 they did catch up because we pulled over a lot. It is nice to get behind one occasionally because the roads are narrow and they clear the way since cars have... More
