Unfortunately it was rainy and overcast, but we were still able to see some amazing views. The drive isn't too long and the roads are kept up well. Highly recommend doing this if you're in the area.

This is one of the better "by water" drives I have done in my travels. Just isolated rugged, GREEN, SHEEP and rock. Really worth the drive and a stop in Dingle.

This drive was full of wonderful vistas. From Killarney we hired a private driver so that we could have a leisurely day to make lots of stops along the way and focus on photography. It was so worth the trip! The winding drive all the way down to the bottom was so interesting. Looking up at the cliffs and blue... More

We took the advice of our tour guide/driver and took the Slea Head Drive over the Ring of Kerry...and an wonderful choice it was. The views are amazing. The beaches, the coastline were absolutely stunning. This choice also allowed us to visit Dingle, which we thought we would not be able to fit in had we done the Ring of... More

Having visited the quaint fishing town of Dingle we decided to do the drive to Slea Head, we were not disappointed. Absolutely stunning , with every bend on the narrow road it opened up a new photo stop opportunity. From the steep cliffs that bordered the roadway to the wild Atlantic ocean below and the loose grazing sheep that dotted... More

There's a photograph at every corner down this drive. The ocean, the silver rocks and the sheep grazing in the farms beyond. Drive slow and take a coffee break at the Cafe am Slea Head Drive to soak in the sights along with a slice of homemade apple pie!

This area is beautiful but you must do the horse and jarvey through the national park. Plan to spend a half day at the park as there is biking and hiking.
