The 46km Slea Head Scenic Drive from Dingle is one of the best and most spectacular driving routes on the Wild Atlantic Way with breathtaking views of the coastline, offshore islands and cliff top roads. One of the most iconic views is from above the picture perfect Dun Chaoin pier. It wasn’t the most spectacular sunset, but Martin and I still enjoyed a quiet time waiting for the sun go down and admiring the view of the cliffs and Blasket Islands in the distance. In the meantime the muted colours and soft light momentarily turned the scene into something very special.
When we were planning our holiday I was looking forward to the wild part of the Wild Atlantic Way. Stormy skies, wild wind, raging ocean, thundering waves, spectacular cliff tops and beaches. The reality was quite an opposite. Most of our days were filled with sunlight and light breeze, and the Atlantic was more like a mill pond. Well, it had its charm as well.
Sometimes you just have to relax, take your shoes off, put the tripod away and just enjoy the warm sun on the beach.
