Road to Spanish Point


When planning your travel, do not under-estimate the time it will take to get between any two points, calculate averaging 30 miles/50 kilometres in an hour, and less if travelling primarily minor roads.

If you are a visitor to Ireland it is important that you are aware of the national speed limits. Driving in excess of the speed limit may result in an on-the-spot fine of €80. There are a total of five different types of speed limits throughout Ireland:

1. Town / city built up areas - 50km/h
2. National Roads & Dual Carriageways – 100km/h
3. Regional & local roads - 80km/h
4. Motorways - 120km/h
5. Special speed limits - 30km/h or 60km/h. These are often applied to designated roads on the near built-up areas or schools.
