Track around rugged Loop Head Peninsula along Coasts of Atlantic and the Shannon Estuary. Amazing Coastal scenery between Kilkee and Loop Head Lighthouse. Beaches and Picnic Areas on the Shannon Estuary with View to Dingle Peninsula. Routing includes all the major sights and does not coincide with Loop Head Drive nor Loop Head Cycleway! Quiet paved single lane roads throughout. Not recommended on a windy day! Find accommodation on http://www.westclare.net
