If you have to pick, do this instead of the Ring of Kerry

Let me start by saying we loved the Ring of Kerry. The scenery is beautiful and the little towns along the way are charming. That said, if I had to pick between it and the Dingle... read more

Let me start by saying we loved the Ring of Kerry. The scenery is beautiful and the little towns along the way are charming. That said, if I had to pick between it and the Dingle Peninsula, I'd pick the Dingle Peninsula. To be clear: Slea Head Drive is on the Dingle Peninsula, just outside of the town of Dingle.... More

We drove the entire Dingle Peninsula and most of the Ring of Kerry - absolutely stunning views. Would need a few days to take in even half of the breathtaking views. A definite must, and we will be going again!

Slea Head Drive was a lovely way to start our day! Recommend it to anyone staying in Dingle! We stopped on at one of the beaches where there was a small waterfall and people had made little stacking stone "sculptures" and it made for very nice photos!

If you like nature and rough rugged landscapes, then this is definitely for you. Every view was exciting. Also there are some historic sights along the way.

Driving this road is definitely a must! Every 100 meters there's a new photo opportunity, and the views over the Celtic sea and the coast are stunning.

This is one of the prettiest drives we took of the many miles we logged on our trip to West Ireland. Roads are narrow but still not too tricky. All of the traffic heads one way from Dingle out thru Trailee and onto Dunquin--so make sure to go in that direction. Every turn is filled with beautiful views and nice... More

Every time we turned a corner we kept saying "Wow!". It was just amazing seeing the Skelligs in the distance, like some pointed Avalon, and the craggy closer islands with the white breakers crashing against them under a blue sky. At one lay-by the seagulls ate from our hands.

Our guest house was in a place called Dunquin and it's about 30 mins drive from Dingle. We were driving on this Slea Head drive way and I must say that the scenery and the views you get are unbelievable!!! The Atlantic Ocean is right next to you and you can feel the power of the waves. Very windy though...... More

Lovely views even on a wet & windy day in November. I'm sure they must be stunning in the summer. There are some narrow corners & turns which made us wonder how the traffic copes in peak season. Some good information boards along the way to help you get the most from the drive.

When we arrived in Dingle and got settled, we stopped in the visitors' center across from our "new local" and booked a 2-hour guided tour around the Dingle Peninsula or the Slea Head Drive. The staff at the center were excellent and proved to be great resources for Dingle and the rest of South West Ireland. We were introduced to... More
