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

If you have to make a decision between Ring of Kerry & Dingle / Slea Head, Slea Head Drive. It is spectacular. You have the mountains meeting the sea & it is spectacular. Had we had the experienced driver we paid for this trip probably would have been the highlight of my Ireland experience. Fortunately we had a beautiful day... More

This was definitely the tour with the best scenery on our trip. With this said we didn't drive the ring of Kerry or went to the cliffs of Moher, but still. The roads are very narrow on some places so take it really slowly! Drive slowly otherwise as well since there are many great stops along the road for taking... More

A bit winding and very narrow but few tour buses and incredible cliff and beach views coupled with fantastic walking trails! A pub in the middle for a pint, all we needed.

We stayed in a B & B near Slea Head , about 17 km from Dingle and had and absolutely gorgeous view of Slea Head and the Blasket Islands. We then biked to Bally David and back to our B&B... More

We drove the Dingle Peninsula on our way from Killarney to Liscannor. It was absolutely worth every km and minute. This gives you a true view of Ireland - from the beautiful beaches to the countryside. We reached Dunquin and were in awe of the amazing views (as were the other visitors). We then took the car ferry from the... More

If the slea head drive doesn't make it onto a list of top places to visit before you die I give up! Truly a breathtaking drive. I've travelled lots and this drive just knocked my socks off. So so beautiful. I even drove it with 3 kids under 5 and still enjoyed the experience - kind of unheard of for... More

This was one of the most beautiful and scenic drives I've ever been on. The green hills, the rocky points in the ocean, the whole landscape is impressive. The drive itself can be done in a couple hours, but allow yourself some extra time to see the many sights along the way. There are so many random stops -- some... More
