The main danger when travelling in this region is the roads, or lack of them! Travelling on the coastal roads can be hair-raising for those inexperienced with Irish driving. Roads are narrow and twisting, many hug the cliff-face and the driver will not have the time or inclination to admire the surrounding scenery!
