Driving On Dingle Peninsula

We have a car and are planning an overnight trip from Cashel to Dingle and Killarney. We’ve been told that we should start the drive on the north of the Dingle Peninsula because that’s the direction the tour buses go and the roads are too narrow to pass the buses. I’’ve also,heard,the opposite because you’re not following the buses. Any thoughts or advice on this? Thanks.

I would go in the direction of the tour buses. I was in the front seat of our bus and watched cars have to reverse until they got to an outcrop so the bus could pass. My driver said at times the guide on our bus will reverse the car for tourists who freeze. Which I know I would

Hi from Wisconsin,
Take Conner's Pass and you will find no tour busses.

Killarney, neat name, horribly over touristed town. The Black Valley is worth your time.

We ended up skipping the pass due to weather but found driving on Dingle Peninsula to be comparatively calm. No large tour buses the day we were there!
