I traveled through the majority of Ireland beginning in Shannon and heading south until ending in Dublin for a total of 15 days. This is quite a stretch and can't be missed. There aren't many places to stop as the road is extraordinarily narrow but when you do stop it is an amazing experience. It is one of the few times you truly get to feel like your exploring as the road usually has little traffic and you stand in the silent expanse of the area. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it and the pictures were remarkable.
The only caution I give is to ensure you have had good rest before this drive and that your driver is confident in his/her ability. It is cut into the side of a cliff and the road is incredibly narrow with small pull over points that aren't frequent. You may end up reversing to get into one in order to allow an opposing vehicle to get by. Believe me, it serves to make the experience even more memorable. This is a must on your Ireland trip and highly suggested.
