I did this drive on a tour from Killarney and It was absolutely one of the best days of my trip. Luckily, it was a sunny, warm day when we went and the scenery was absolutely stunning. Pictures do not do justice to the views you will get on your drive.

We rented bikes from Dingle for the day (15euros per bike) and cycled around Slea Head. It really wasn't that challenging and the scenery can be appreciated A LOT more from a bike than from in a car or worse, a large tourist bus. There are plenty of places to stop for photos and a break and cars generally drive... More

Kerry is a spectacular county to visit or stay in while in Ireland, and slea head is a great way to see the county in all its splendour. It's rugged coastline and spectacular views make this a must for any traveller!

The Slea head drive, particularly the southern portion is really impressive sightseeing wise, there are many palces to stop, take a few snaps, a really beautiful beach at the very tip, and lots of hilly walks, I had a great time down in Dingle this time round, but do feel that they rip the tourists off a bit, especially the...

Toured slea head in July 2014. Unmissable... Recommend heading out from Dingle along the coast as if you come the other way (start at the other end and head to Dingle), it will be head on traffic with no room to manoeuvre, except reverse!

We took a long afternoon and enjoyed the drive. My favorite stop was the breach, great view but too cold to swim. The road is narrow but only issue we had was the tour buses.

This short drive of 40k takes about 3 hours plus, may be more time depending on the amount of time you wish to spend at many of the attractions. Definitely worth travelling in a clockwise direction, as the roads are narrow. Travelling in the direction of traffic avoids passing vehicles on the narrow roads. As there are many stops overtaking... More

This drive has everything. Stunning scenery of this western most point in Europe; 6,000 years of history; archaeological sites encompassing the periods from Mesolithic through the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages, to the times of the Great Famine. Not to be missed!
