Council To Continue Trial Of One-Way System On Slea Head Drive

Posted by


KERRY County Council, in conjunction with Fáilte Ireland, is continuing the trialling a clockwise traffic management system for visitors on Slea Head Drive from Friday, July 29th to Monday 22nd August.

During this trial period, the Council asks that larger vehicles travel in a clockwise direction around Slea Head, starting at Dingle town, then on to Ventry, Slea Head, Coumeenole, Dunquin, Ballyferriter, Muríoch, Feohanagh and back to Dingle.

The trial, taking place on this occasion during the peak visitor season, follows a similar trial which took place earlier this year and will inform future considerations on traffic management in the area.

A Kerry County Council employee will be positioned each day from 10.30 am to 4.00pm at Coumeenole to encourage larger vehicles that are driving in the incorrect direction to follow the correct route.

Visitors will be encouraged to follow the recommended route from the outset resulting in more time to relax and enjoy the magnificent views, attractions, history and culture of this beautiful part of Kerry.

Local access will be maintained as normal. Extensive directional signage advising of the clockwise system will be erected locally.
