Slea Head Drive, Dingle Peninsula, Ireland

Today, I’m driving down the Slea Head Drive. In my head. It was a trek we took last summer while spending time on the Dingle Peninsula in Ireland. And it was beyond stunning. 

As the rain pelted our tiny windshield, we watched in wonder at the unfolding landscape around us. Precarious curve after precarious curve revealed gray seas, tucked-away beaches, rocky, wind-blown cliffs and sloping, green-coated coasts. It may not sound like an expected paradise. But on one drizzly day in July 2010, there was no place we would have rather been.

Where to Rove along Slea Head Drive:
