Slea Head Drive

View Photos

A STUNNING PART OF THE DINGLE PENINSULA

The westernmost point of the Dingle Peninsula is the Slea Head Drive. Part of the famous Wild Atlantic Way, Slea Head consists of a circular drive, beginning and ending in Dingle.

As the road is only 47 kilometres (30 miles) long, it is an easy day trip from the town. But you can take as much time as you want to drive as there are plenty of attractions along the way!

On the southern edge, we recommend visiting the Celtic & Prehistoric Museum. At this museum you can see the only complete woolly mammoth skeleton in Ireland. Come and experience true historic artefacts, such as baby dinosaur bones and a dinosaur’s nest with eggs.

Make sure to stop at Gaelic villages and see the Blasket Islands from up close. You could always take a boat trip there if time allows. On the horizon, you may be able to spot the Skellig Islands on a clear day.

As you make your way along Slea Head, you’ll also be rewarded by a spectacular view over the foot of Mount Eagle.
