The Wild Atlantic Way

The Wild Atlantic Way is an unspoiled scenic driving route along the Western Coast of Ireland. Stretching from Donegal, it winds its way down along the coast to finish in Cork.

The Wild Atlantic Way is Ireland’s number one tourist attraction, and it is no wonder it is with its beautiful and diverse landscapes that are experienced along the way including towering cliffs, rocky shores, sandy beaches, vibrant villages and charming seaside towns. Not only is the landscape divine, you also have lots of places to explore including historical sites, cultural attractions and lots of outdoor activities to see and do.

Visiting the Wild Atlantic Way makes you feel alive and free, feel the fresh sea air as the breath-taking power of the Atlantic Ocean glistens and crashes under the sun. It captures you and makes you feel like you never want to leave.
