If you have a hire car then this is the place to venture, Lovely winding roads then the views are to kill for. Very cold and windy in March but what the heck I knew this before I came to Ireland and it was fantastic.

This drive is amazing and provides beautiful scenery during every single mile. The drive takes about an hour, but allow two hours if you're like me and plan on stopping for pics along the way. There is one area where you can pull down to a pier along the beach in a cove and it is a great place to... More

The Slea Head Drive is a must - Don't bother with the Ring of Kerry - Head to Dingle Instead - Conor Pass is fantastic. The Beauty of this part of the world is breathtaking & must be visited, at least once in your life

We spent a good part of the day taking this wonderful drive around the Dingle Peninsula. We got lucky with the weather and the sun was out for a good part of our drive. We had rented a car for the time we were in Kerry and I would highly recommend it as it was so nice to be able... More

Slea Head Drive is one of the most beautiful views in Ireland. I have made two trips to Ireland and I was just as excited the second time to see this area as I was the first. The first time I was with a small tour group so the bus could only stop in certain areas for photo opportunities. The... More

Both the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula are worth driving however the Slea Head drive has some of the prettiest scenery in Ireland. Driving is easy but there are portions if the road that is single line only. A great trip and well worth the drive

I can only repeat what all other reviewers have written - beautiful views! I thought I would be rather nervous with the drive on a narrow road, but we experienced next to no traffic and had the road to ourselves. There are many places along the drive where you can pull off and park and get out and take photos.... More

OMG OMG OMG We came into Dingle via Conor Pass, which was a fun adventure, and continued along the Slea Head Drive. The views were so amazing, that I actually stopped and cried from the sheer beauty of it all. It's a lot to take in. I think what was so special about this drive, was that we were the... More

Such a journey down the coast road, beauty is the order of this drive. Mountains, sea, cliffs, cottages, for as long as you can see. Untouched beauty , the landscape speaks for itself. Take it in and breathe. Enjoy , take a photo. Relax, never forget this special drive.
