Just got home from a trip to Ireland, but I must say the highlight was our stay in Dingle and our tour with Rory from Slea Head Tours. Rory picked us up at Heaton's Guesthouse (amazing place) and showed us sites we never would have seen otherwise. He is so knowledgeable about the area (born and raised in Dingle Town),... More

Breathtaking beach views, as well as lots of cows and sheep to admire. A favorite attraction of the area.

This scenic drive of the dingle peninsula is breathtaking. I did this during a Britain and Ireland experience tour and the day turned out to be the highlight of my entire trip. If you love drives and sceneries, this is a must. There are great spots to take photos along the drive. The dingle bay is a great stop for... More

This was by far one of the most beautiful scenic drives I've ever taken. Slea Head makes the Pacific Coast Highway look like the New Jersey Turnpike. There wasn't a cloud in the sky the day we drove Slea Head. Around every corner there was just one breathtaking view after another. We stopped at every place we could just to... More

Our group opted to take this drive instead of the Ring of Kerry as we had heard it would be far less touristy. I am so glad we did because the sites were absolutely breathtaking, and I felt like I was on the edge of the world. You definitely want to be sure to drive this clockwise as the roads... More

The Slea Head Drive is a great way to spend an afternoon exploring the terrain of the western most point of Ireland. The rolling hills are breathtaking, and the views of the ocean magical. Stop often and just take it all in. See ruins that are over 4000 years old.

We booked a small van tour (about 9 people and a guide) for this drive. This solved many problems...the first being we did not have to drive ourselves so both my husband and i could relax and enjoy the spectacular sties. The other positive was our tour guide was very knowledgeable and could get us to all the sites while... More

Via the Dingle Peninsula we did the 32 mile Slea Head drive with great views of the Atlantic Ocean and saw the Blasket Islands. The views are breathtaking and there is a mystical quality to it if the fog is lifting.... It’s a beautiful drive, we enjoyed it and are glad we saw it. We did the Ring of Kerry... More
