Discover the Slea Head Loop trail at the end of the Dingle Peninsula, near Ballyferriter, County Kerry, Ireland. A moderate to difficult 9.2 km coastal trail with some steep sections, it has a total elevation of 1171 ft and is worth the effort, delivering panoramic ocean views, rugged ridgelines and beautiful wild headlands.
On clear days The Skelligs can be spotted, whilst it is also one of the best bird-watching areas in Ireland, particularly favoured for it’s seabird colonies including Storm Petrels, Shearwaters and the Puffin. Inland sections can become boggy and uneven in bad weather, so boots are advised. Dogs are allowed but must be kept on a leash.
