What is the Wild Atlantic Way?

Wild Atlantic Way mapThe Wild Atlantic Way stretches for 2,500km along Ireland’s western seaboard.


From Donegal in the north to Cork in the south, through regions like Connemara, the Burren, Galway Bay and Kerry, the route is the world’s longest defined coastal drive.

Take your time, enjoy the experience!


You could attempt to drive the whole route in one go, but why hurry? The best way to see the Wild Atlantic Way is to slow down and dive in deep – it’s in the hidden treasures along the ocean’s edge and the warmth of the people you meet along the way that you will find the Ireland you have always imagined.
