Estimated driving times in Ireland?


I wonder if anyone could give me a rough idea of how long to allow to drive between the following places in Ireland please? I am planning an itinerary.

Dublin to Sligo

Sligo to Giant's Causeway

Sligo to Killarney

Killarney to Rosslare

Many Thanks,


Dublin, Ireland

The bible of planning your journey! Always allow extra for traffic though....Dublin in particular.

I drove from Dublin to Sligo last weekend and it took about 3 hours, including a quick stop. Its a pretty easy drive the whole way there, 100k an hour most of the way, but be careful as there were a lot of guards pulling people over.

I cannot help you with the rest of them, but I'd say it would take about 2 hours give or take a bit to Killarney and the same from Killarney to Rosslare
