From the breathtaking sea cliffs of Donegal to the foodie mecca of Kinsale in West Cork, the Wild Atlantic Way is a magical tapestry of ever-changing landscapes that’s just waiting to be explored.

From windswept, sandy beaches, breathtaking vistas and sheer cliffs, to dramatic mountains and seascapes, the Wild Atlantic Way stretches 2,500km and takes in seven counties.Prepare for gazing at Sliabh Liag, one of Europe’s highest sea cliffs in Donegal, for walks on sandy shores that work up big appetites in Co. Sligo, cycling trails and traditional music in Mayo, the unique lunar karst landscape in the Burren, Co. Clare or the colourful villages and towns of West Cork.The well-signed, easy-to-navigate route includes 188 Discovery Points, where visitors can stop and learn more about the must-sees and hidden local gems like Derrigimlagh in Connemara Co. Galway and its transatlantic connection or Co. Kerry’s otherworldly Skellig Islands

This is a place of magic which promises to leave life-long memories - whether strolling among the wildflowers of the Burren UNESCO Geopark,exploring the panoramic mountains and valleys along the Beara Peninsula, or walking in the footsteps of Ireland’s great poet, WB Yeats, “under bare Ben Bulben’s head” in Co. Sligo. As you travel along the Wild Atlantic Way, you will notice the vibrant splashes of colour of Wild Atlantic Way villages set against the backdrop of the mountains and the sea merging like a wonderful colourful canvas. Roam rugged roads, take in the clean air on a coastal cliff walk, or discover untouched scenery off the beaten track on a walking trail.

Time seems to move differently and you find time for yourself here. You open up to new experiences and start to truly live in the moment. This is somewhere to relax, breathe and celebrate all that’s great about life.Let go and embrace the Wild Atlantic Way of life.
