Bring appropriate raingear and hiking boots. A wild, exposed landscape being battered by the Atlantic Ocean. Dotted with many picturesque, isolated towns filled with traditional, Irish hospitality.

We drove along the Wild Atlantic Way from Bushmills to Galway and then Clifden and along the Ring of Kerry. Some beautiful scenery and quaint towns and villages. Watch out for the sheep!

Wow, what a drive on the Wild Atlantic Way! There is so much beautiful scenery to take in. The Burren rocks, the lush green countryside, the golden sand beaches, the cute villages. This is such a beautiful drive to the cliffs or Galway! Great experience.

Very narrow roads, but I don’t think I saw anyone speeding. It is doable but give yourself extra time for driving. Good luck
