It's a small narrow road and there's a lot of bouncing on the tour bus (beware those who get car sick easily) but worth the drive! It was such a nice way to see more of the country after spending a week in Dublin city...More

My parents and I took this tour to break up our drive around the country. We could not recommend it enough! Having some mobility issues, my elderly father was well looked after and we could decide how much or how little we wanted to walk....More

We took this road as it followed the beautifully rugged coastline. We did not regret the decision to do so. Easy drive, plenty to see and plenty of places to stop and enjoy.

I cannot say enough great things about the Wild Atlantic Way. Between the friendly people, delicious food along our roadtrip, and the most gorgeous views I've ever seen, Ireland is now officially my favorite country that my husband and I have visited thus far (That...More

A Sunday spin on the Wild Atlantic Way is a must for locals and tourists alike. If you hit a good day weather wise you’ll be in for a treat with spectacular views. Great restaurants along the way with plenty of choice.

we travelled along a long part of the wild Atlantic way. we had very nice views along the road. in most parts, the road is very narrow and curving a lot.

If you follow all the Wild Atlantic Way roadsigns you will find yourself travelling on some "interesting" little roads. Recommend you also use offline maps and have a rugged vehicle.

Rent a car and travel all that you can of this route as this will take you through the true Ireland. There's a picture and a memory to be had at each bend in the road. Sit back and enjoy what is to come along...More

Just spectacular. Take your time. Make reservations every 100 miles and enjoy your days. 100 miles not that far, but so many places to stop and see. Must do - Fungi in Dingle and Dingle Peninsula.

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

Kellybegs is a quaint fishing village. Friendly people. Not a lot to do other than sit back and enjoy the view, boats coming in, etc. We are not into a loud nightlife and this little village was perfect but artsy towns... 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

You have set a bit of ground to cover. The cliffs are very close to Doolin and the pub (s) are fun. I would advise you to try and see a bit of Burren if you can. It is avery different landscape. If you go from Galway to... More
