Kerry County Council, in conjunction with Fáilte Ireland, is continue to to triall a clockwise traffic management system for visitors on Slea Head Drive from Friday July 29 to Monday 22 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,” said a council statement.

Local access will be maintained as normal.

Extensive directional signage advising of the clockwise system will be erected locally.
