A reminder of life without pollution and without traffic jams. Leisurely drive with many opportunities to stop and wonder how this came to be. Gift shops, coffee shops and quaint bars are in abundance. If you are in a hurry: AVOID!

Beautiful and diverse scenery. The weather was cool and quite windy. We saw a 10 year old boy lose his shoe as it was blown away! Hang on to your possessions!!

Drove along this route views lovely a bit foggy but sure that can't be helped. Went to see the cliffs misty and windy but adds to the drama overall enjoyed the drive.

Spectacular way to tour Ireland from North to south. Incredible. Be careful on the way up to Horn Head, narrow but doable "think thin" in your car

Invigorating drive with spectacular views and many roadside attractions. Not a road to be texting on. Highly recommended for a wonderful coastal experience.
