Need about 4 hours to make an enjoyable experience. Great scenery. A number of pullouts give you a safe chance to stop and take it in. Some will require a short walk. Well worth the time and effort. Bring your camera.

We got this as part of our golfing tour so did not have to pay for it separately. Roads are VERY "tight" so while you could rent a car and do this one yourself, those with any issues driving in tight (sometimes VERY narrow) roads should opt to ride in a bus.

If you have just hopped in a rental car and shot over from Dublin, please take a day and get used to the narrow one Lane roads in this part of the country. The drive is amazing but I saw a lot of green tourists getting into some tight situations with oncoming traffic. There are plenty of great stops along... More

The title says it all! Be sure to take your time and stop at several of the pull outs and look around. Give yourself a minimum of 3-4 hours, more if you want to take any of the walks.

There are so many beautiful views this really is a gorgeous drive. I never found the route difficult, just take your time and be courteous. We went in the same direction as the coaches so never had to worry about them and we also didn't encounter much traffic. So many picture postcard moments.

There are so many spots of note or significance on this nearly 50 km drive that one must become selective and choose based on personal interest. The beehive huts, and Dunbeg Fort are good examples. They are interesting, but may not appeal to all. The Great Blasket Centre is a nicely placed and maintained facility (good time for a driving... More

Slea Head is the furthest point West in Europe. The road gets a tad narrow in places sometimes with a stone wall one side and rocks on the other. Well worth the drive though just for some of the scenery. There are a reasonable number of stopping places but not a massive number. Make use of them.

The view is worth the white knuckles. There was sheep along the streets just strolling along. Stop at the 2nd Bee Hive place, he has a baby lamb you can hold and the price is the same to see the Bee Hives. The views are spectacular along the wateer.

it doesn't take long to see some of the most magnificent views in the world. Be careful driving, you will be tempted to take your eyes off the road, instead pull over at the many places to take a photo. But photos can't capture the beauty of where ocean meets land.

The Slea Head Drive wraps around the westernmost point on the peninsula, a narrow lane clinging to the edge of the cliffs. If another car came crawling at us in the opposite direction, I’d roll down the window and pull in my side mirror. It’s that tight. As we looked out over the stone wall (this is supposed to keep...
