Driving along the western coastline is a wonderful and beautiful experience. I especially enjoyed the Kerry and Dingle peninsulas.

We drove only a portion of the wild Atlantic way, from Liscannor to Doolin but it was beautiful. Wish we had more time to stop and take in some of the views.

Very narrow roads, but I don’t think I saw anyone speeding. It is doable but give yourself extra time for driving. Good luck
