Scenic Route

Recommended
The R477 road hugs the coast around Black Head. As you drive southbound, a wonderful view of the huge boulders, deposited at the end of the Ice Age on a bare limestone plateau, comes into sight. In fine weather, the Aran Islands, of similar geological formation, are visible offshore.
