What you’ll do

Enjoy a journey of a lifetime as you travel the 2,500km-long coastal road known as the Wild Atlantic Way From the wind-whipped tip of Malin Head in County Donegal to the balmy beauty of Kinsale town in County Cork, the west of Ireland will wow you with its epic landscapes and charm you with its quiet moments. This is a place that has inspired dreamers and drifters, poets and painters, with a landscape laced with dry-stone walls, thatched cottages, brooding mountains and deserted beaches. Escape, explore and enjoy an off-the-beaten track adventure on the very edge of Europe.

This itinerary is pretty intense and includes a lot of driving. I recommend you to book accommodations on the way at all the different spots or use camping grounds.
