Winding Road in Slea Head
The roads in Ireland are incredibly narrow, and those in the western-most part of the Dingle peninsula at Slea Head are no exception. For those that are brave and set out with an adventurous spirit and good insurance coverage, views such as this await. There are herds of sheep that regularly cross the road, as well as horses on the hill tops and sea-birds aplenty. This is an area where Ireland really lives up to its rugged, rustic reputation. Suggestion: take it slow, and remember to stop in the small pubs along the way to take in the aroma of peat fires as you sip your pints of cider or Guinness, remembering to engage in friendly banter with your partner or the other pub-goers, for this is what Ireland is, at its heart: friendship, good drink, and amazing scenery.
