On The QT

Our Favourite Roadtrips!

Blogger: Lauren Lucy Crowley

The sun is shining, there is that distinct summer feeling in the air… it is most certainly time for a roadtrip! Here at #OnTheQT we love to load up the bikes/a surfboard, pack a picnic, hop in the car and see where the road takes us! Here are some of our favourite road trips we’ve been on recently!


  1. The Ring Of Kerry: The Ring of Kerry is one of the prettiest drives in Ireland  around the Iveragh Peninsula in County Kerry. The 179km-circular route has spectacular scenery, rugged landscapes, and a collection of friendly seaside villages! Highly recommend taking your time and stopping along the way on this wonderful road trip!
  2. The Ring Road, Clonakilty: While near Clonakilty recently we took a little road trip out towards Ring. The sun was shining and the views were unbelievable. Nothing beats a stroll along the soft sand at Inchydoney, (also a super surfing spot), followed by a delicious hot chocolate made with the finest local Clonakilty chocolate!
  3. The Copper Coast: Lying just west of  Tramore it is one of the most spectacular coastal stretches in Ireland. The Copper Coast is an outdoor museum of geological records; it stretches along the coast from Kilfarassy Beach, near Fenor in the east to Ballyvoile Beach near Stradbally to the west. As we drove along the undulating roads, I could barley contain my excitement about what was going to be around the next corner! Highly recommend this drive!
  4. The Burren: We also recently enjoyed a special kind of roadtrip to discover some of Irelands’ most fascinating geography in Co. Clare! Blessed with sunshine we had a fantastic time popping in and out of the car admiring amazing geographical features! We also got to travel the Corkscrew Road… and I found out exactly how it got its name! Its  a famous winding road between Ballyvaughan and Lisdoonvarna originally designed as a famine relief scheme! Although a little worring when we met a car, it was definitely one of the most thrilling car trips I’ve been on all year.. not to mind the views!! Highly recommend it!
