One of the most spectacular coastal routes in the world – the Wild Atlantic Way – winds its way all along the western coast of Ireland and features highly on many travel enthusiasts’ wishlist for good reason.
Unmatched beauty, stunning landscape and rugged terrain all show flashes of the wonders of the island in its natural glory. It is best navigated by land and sea – the boat trips to the cliffs and surrounding islands offer a truly unique vantage point that needs to be seen to be believed.
It is the jewel in the crown when it comes to Irish land and sea tours and for that reason features prominently in many of the coach experiences we list on our website.
2600 km in length, the trail begins in County Donegal’s Inishowen Peninsula and ends in Kinsale, County Cork. It can be broken up into smaller routes which are perfect for visitors on shorter stays or if more time is needed to soak up the surrounding sites.
