Around each twist and turn there's another vista that's just as beautiful. If you want to stop a lot, it will take a while to do this drive. We stopped a far amount and drove about 3/4 of it before heading back to Dingle and it took us about 4 hours.

We were Blessed with the opportunity to rent a home on Slea Head across from the Blasket Island. To sit back and drink in this piece of heaven was incredible. Even now I sit back, close my eyes and remember....If only - if only we could have remained. Truly an area that should not be missed.

This part of the world is no more that 60km from my front door, I don't make the journey that often but every time I do I leave in awe of its beauty.

It was truly beautiful with scenery that you cant imagine unless you see it! Highly recommended specially if you can do it on a clear day.

Spoke to the proprietor of my B&B in Dingle about taking the Slea Head Drive around the Dingle Peninsula. She said it was a nice 1 1/2 hour drive. Not true! Well, the nice drive part was, but we spent nine hours touring. Driving, stopping to take photos, hitting some of the sights along the way, to include the Blasket... More

Myself and my partner took this route on our recent trip down to Kerry and it was spectacular! It depicts everything the wild atlantic way is about. The powerful waves smashing against the rugged cliffs, the narrow, spiralling roads and the breath taking blasket islands on the horizon. If that doesn't get you excited enough you can take a leaf...

We did this round trip on a fantastically sunny day which made the scenery unforgettable. Lots to stop and see on the way. You need to follow the local advice and travel the route in a clock wise direction to avoid trying to pass the tour busses.

After Milltown this road narrows to a single track road as you can see on the photos. So expect to drive at 20mph from there to Dunquin where it widens, watching out for cyclists, walkers and drivers who suddenly stop. Nice views of a lot of cliffs,beaches and historic sites, then mountains when you cut inland back to Dingle. The... More

There are many beautiful headlands along the western coast of Ireland, but the Slea Head drive was probably the most magnificent we experienced. Out at the tip of the Dingle Peninsula, it is obvious that this is a place that takes the brunt of Atlantic storms that hit the coast of Ireland, and a place the old seafarers and fishermen... More

The Dingle Peninsula Slea Head Drive is a must do for anyone visiting this part of Ireland. With a large number of incredibly interesting stops along the way, as well as some of the most beautiful views on Earth, it should not be missed. Make sure to really take your time and explore the various stops/sights along the way. A... More
