Drove along this route on a beautiful sunny day. Lots of stopping places for pictures and to take the air. Can be busy at photo stops.

The Slea Head drive has some stunning scenery. Your enjoyment will vary greatly depending on the weather. A sunny day is the best. You will want to stop at every tiny turnout to take photos. I have traveled the other 2 western peninsulas of Ireland,...More

Words can't describe this place, you just need to go experience it for yourself. It's best in a car, because you'll want to pull over a lot for scenic views and exploring.

Most spectacular drive, high above the rolling Atlantic waves. Incredible mountains to the other side all steeped in history - highly recommended.

We set off from Dingle and it was an amazing drive. Some of the scenery is hard to believe. Well worth the journey around.

This road is not for the faint of heart, but the views are stunning. Sun and binoculars are both critical.

Stupendous drive along the sea, past stone age forts, verdant hills, quiet coastal walks, and dramatic outlooks over the ocean. Don't miss Connor's Pass. Travel clockwise.

There are plenty of pull offs to get some great picks and walk around a bit. Just give yourself time to enjoy it and do not rush through. Dingle the town is great to walk around and explore.

It is basically a big loop leaving from and returning to Dingle. You need to give yourself a minimum of 4-5 hours to do it justice.

We drove the Slea Head Drive out of Dingle last October. No issues. Plenty of places to pull over and park and take in the wonderful views.
