Over the county bounds and into killarney on to Tralee and out the dingle road you will be there in no time !
it is cork city you are leaving from,
had you another option in mind......
through millstreet will still need to travel to killarney.
there is a by pass in tralee to take you through quickly.
no harm in buying a map and having it in the car at all times or using AA route planner and print off the page it makes up .

From Killarney go to Milltown and on by Inch and then you skirt Annascual.

Thanks for replies I've then got to come back to Wexford so is it best to go to Killarney and then via Mallow and ?????????? or Cork. Cork seems longer but a better road.

It's each to their own. I prefer going through Cork as it is a much better road (just except the mile going through Ballyvourney).

I did Tralee to Wexford last Friday, great drive. I went Killarney, Macroom, Cork Ring Rd onto Waterford etc. Some beautiful places along the way. Only hit traffic in New Ross and was stuck there for ages. The new section of the N25 at Waterford is a spectacular road. Took about 5 hours including the hold up at New Ross.

Killarney-Mallow-Mitchelstown is a poor enough road, esp if you are unfamilar with it . What part of Wexford are you going to?

Miss Annascual and at leaset see the south pole pub, and the whole story of TOM CERAN,now that is a pity to miss out on . these are the little bits on the way to dingle that make the trip . the road trip should be part of the experience and is scattered with litttle surprizes. any one going to dingle should go up the connor pass to just to see the view of the town of dingle as you drive down the other side.

My preference would be Cork -> Killarney -> Milltown/Castlemaine -> Inch and onwards to Dingle from there.

Come back the same way and go the Cork road N22 and then the N25

If you're heading for New Ross side then maybe Cork, Dungarvan, Waterford, New Ross. If it were me I'd go Killarney,Mallow , Mitchelstown, Clonmel, Waterford , but the roads are, as I said ,not great in parts,
