Probably the most fun part of our time was driving around. Get lost, it’s the most fun. You’ll find new views and food and people. It’s a challenge to drive but we did it by uploading the apple maps into our phone and identifying the...More

In French "Wild" would normally translate as "Sauvage" which could be interpreted in a negative way ... in Irish informal conversation "Savage" is in fact highly complimentary - which is intentional ! The rugged coastline is still unspoilt with fantastic walks and panaromic views in...More

So...be careful! There's a heckuva dropoff if you're self driving (which we did), but people tend to take it easy on the way so its okay, just not at all like a back road in the US. Great drive to just take in the scenery,...More

We drove most of this route, experiencing small islands, and cute towns, along with the Burren, and Cliffs of Moher.

An absolute must for a lengthy tour of Ireland! There is so much to see along the way, with multiple places to park up and explore. The scenery will not disappoint, with mountains, lakes, pristine beaches and forests wherever you look. Plan ahead regarding weather,...More

On sunny day driving around Wild Atlantic Way is all you need. Stunning scenery. Beautiful beaches. Great little towns. And if you are lucky with weather you can even have a swimm.

My advice is not to try to do too much of it. It could take a good 10 days to do the whole route, more if you meander. Focus on an area. We did Galway to Waterford over a week, staying in different places each night. Notched... More

Hi, I am looking for advice for our 3 day trip, and how best to make the most of our time. In March we fly to Shannon and early morning and head to Doolin, we want to see the cliffs and have read about the local pub, which would like to visit at night, what else would anyone recommend close by for day one, Day two we are in Galway, again i would like to see the cathedral but need advice on the best bars to visit and things to see on this day, Day 3 Westport, we have been advised on the drive from Galway to Westport the scenic route but any favourite things to do in this area, Day four we plan to visit Achill Island for a few hours until its time to head to Knock to fly home that evening, obviously we have hired a car and have a few ideas just wandering about places I havent found whilst researching, it is a long while since we have been kid free so want to make the most of it day and night time, thank you so much in advance for any comments, oh and all three accommodations have been booked
