Sadly, the week we were in the Westport area was the week that the Irish Coast Guard lost a crew of four in a crash into the Atlantic sea at Blackrock Island. Pray for their souls and their... More

This drive is beautiful with little traffic. Recommend taking a picnic lunch to enjoy at one of the scenic pull outs. Restaurants & shops are available on the island. The drive has a nice beach near a children's play park.

I love this place. It is perfect for a romantic drive around the coast. Better to go during the spring or summer.

Temper this with its rugged natural beauty when on a glorious sunny day you will be bedazzled by stunning scenery best views from the high vantage points. During the summer... More

Cycled much of this route at various times of the year. Drive it or cycle it. Just see it if you're in the area. Well worth a visit.

Really good way to see this fantastic stretch of amazing coastline. There are some nice little pubs on route. The road itself is very quiet i think we only saw 3 or 4 other cars.
