  • Beautiful drive and well worth braving the road that can be very small at times. You get the sea, the mountains, the countryside, small homes, large homes -- a bit of everything! 
  • Should you take be sure if one is nearby. The ferry to the island is very beautiful... If you Sun across the Atlantic goes down it's twice as nice

  • Absolutely beautiful views and a great drive. Narrow road, as you would expect in Ireland, but well worth it. Recommended.
