Loop Head Drive < Back
This scenic road trip, part of the Wild Atlantic Way, takes you in a leisurely circle around the spectacular coastline of Loop Head.
On the southern coast it takes you through Querrin, Doonaha and Carrigaholt, up through Cross and on to Kilbaha. From there it’s a straight run to the tip of the peninsula, taking in a visit to the lighthouse if you wish, and a walk to Diarmuid and Gráinne’s Rock, looking out for dolphins and whales.
Along the northern coast, the drive passes the access point for the Bridges of Ross and a turn for the Church of the Little Ark. Then it’s back through Cross before making a sharp left and heading for some of the most dramatic scenery on the Irish coast. You’ll pass dizzying cliffs and improbable seastacks as the drive steers you back to Kilkee.
In many places the road is wide enough for only one vehicle so please drive carefully.
