This is a great drive I liked it better in total than the Ring of Kerry (over rated). I recommend that you take your time and give it a few hours. There are many turnouts to take and view the coast. Time spent and the Blasket Islands museum is worth it as well. Take a few minutes for the "Bee... More

Go early, before the giant tour buses from Tralee clog up the roads. Or, if you're in decent shape, rent a bike in town and ride the ring counter-clockwise (my boyfriend did this - took him 2.75 hours to complete the 26 mile loop - he generally does 18 mile rides here in Denver, so it wasn't a hard ride...

I am from Ireland and have visited Kerry a lot this summer. But this was probably the top of all my visits! You would need good weather to get the best of the views but what you see is just breathtaking!! The views are amazing. I cannot recommend it highly enough, words cannot describe it so take a look at... More

We decided to slow down a bit and enjoy Irleand instead of rushing through it. We drove the Slea Head drive in Dingle. It was most memorable. Take your time and stop everywhere and anywhere along the way for pottery, history, homemade soup, coffee, and history. Oh by the way, the views are amazing.

Completely breath taking views! The little cafe just past the head is worth a visit, home made cakes made fresh in the little house kitchen! A fantastic day!

We did the dingle drive on a sunny afternoon and stopped many times along the way to see the ruins, pop into a nice cafe for a coffee and scone or just to take photos. There are breathtaking views around every corner so keep your camera ready and take a moment to just look and reflect :) You won't see... More

Slea Head and the Blasket Islands Center with tea -- a great start for an introduction to Ireland's treasured place to visit. Best to go early or late to avoid the bus traffic, but worth every moment.

We stay at a friends cottage whenever we get the chance so we are back and forth along Slea Head drive all the time. It is truly stunning. We are by a small strand and travel all the time across the Dingle peninsula and this road in particular gives you the best views of the mountainous hills, cliffs and sea,... More
