From Dublin to Shannon (drive or not?)

Jump to last reply

Hi,
I'm trying to decide if to drive or not. I understand you would see a lot more with a car. Is it possible to drive and see the coastal views without encountering the steep roads. I don't mind slow traffic and narrow roads; it's the steep roads and sheer drop offs I'm afraid of. With this in mind, would I be able to handle Slea Head Drive? I won't touch Ring of Kerry or Connor Pass!

After 3 nights in Dublin, I could stop at West Cork for one night, 2 nights in Dingle area, and the last night near Shannon airport, perhaps Limerick?

We would like to stay at B&Bs and love rolling hills and want to horseback ride at least once (on the beach preferably).

After describing the above, if I were to take public transport, would I be able to accomplish what I'd like to do/see?

Any thoughts or advice?
