The Wild Atlantic Way is an exciting journey along the Atlantic coast of Ireland from the Inishowen Peninsula in County Donegal to Kinsale in County Cork – we cover just some of it taking in seven counties in total. The route itself comprises a central spine that navigates travellers along Ireland’s Atlantic coast showcasing the diverse landscapes and the rugged coastline and provides us with the best experience that both the West of Ireland landscape and people have to offer.
