I think this was as stunning as the Ring Of Kerry. Driving was not for the feint of heart and you may want to be used to driving over there before attempting this yourself.

We took a private tour of Slea Head Drive from Heaton's guesthouse. It was so incredible. We started out at Ventry Beach and visited the Bee Hive's, the Reasc Monastic site, Gallarus Oratory and Kilmalkeder Church.

So, we did this in March, in torrential rain. I drove the Conor Pass wondering what the heck all the 'terrifying' comments were about. But the following day, from the Ring of Kerry, I looked across at Dingle and saw the mountains for the first time... Moral? If you're worried about driving the Conor Pass, do it in heavy rain/...

We drove the entire Dingle Peninsula and most of the Ring of Kerry - absolutely stunning views. Would need a few days to take in even half of the breathtaking views. A definite must, and we will be going again!

Slea Head Drive was a lovely way to start our day! Recommend it to anyone staying in Dingle! We stopped on at one of the beaches where there was a small waterfall and people had made little stacking stone "sculptures" and it made for very nice photos!

If you like nature and rough rugged landscapes, then this is definitely for you. Every view was exciting. Also there are some historic sights along the way.
