Reviewed June 21, 2013

Never travelled here before and boy were we missing a treat. The drive just fabulous on a good day or otherwise. Around every turn the views just amaze. Go there whatever!

“Gorgeous drive!!!”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Take time to drive the island. Jaw-dropping dramatic cliffs. We stopped briefly at 18th century church named after St. Damnhnait, and early Christian saint. Stop at Keel Bay, unspoiled sandy beach.

Beautiful drive along the coast. The blues and greens

“Highlight of Ireland”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Devote a day to taking this drive and make lots of stops..so much to see. Lots of great beach walks and definitely stop at the "deserted village"- a haunting testament to the potato famine.

“ok in the back?”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

lovely for passengers in the front but can be uncomfortable for those in the back due to curlywurly roads! Scenery makes it worthwhile.
