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

My friend and I went on a road trip across Ireland's south. The Slea Head Drive was one of our highlights. It was simply breathtaking: driving on small roads through tiny villages along the cliffs and the sea

amazing views and scenery on this drive, tight turns and winding roads so you need to be comfortable driving, but it is well worth it !

We rented a car and are so glad we did. Though the driving can be scary if you're not used to it, it's worth getting comfortable and exploring this beautiful area.

Slea Head Drive was absolutely gorgeous. Along the way, we visited: Dunbeg Fort - Amazing prehistoric site that may not be there for long - just at the edge of one of the buildings, erosion is deteriorating the cliff. Gallerus Oratory - Unbelievable how intact this building is considering it was built sometime between the 6th and 9th century (although... More

This is a wonderful drive with many stops on the way. We stopped at the ring fort, beehive huts, Great Blasket Island Visitors Center, Gallarus Oratory and at several cliffs and beaches. The drive is winding, but was easy to follow. This was one of the highlights of our trip.

We visited Slea Head during a bus tour to the Dingle peninsula. This was the highlight of our trip to Killarney. Beautiful dramatic scenery at the Atlantic coast, "real" Ireland at its best.

The Atlantic Ocean crashing onto the rocks is a sight to behold with the rolling green hills providing an amazing backdrop. The sun peeked out from under the clouds and we were able to enjoy some magnificent and memorable views. The Wild Atlantic Way is well signposted and we took our time as we drove in a clockwise direction. The... More
