The Irish have perfected many things, one of them being storytelling. Being some of the friendliest people on earth, you're invited to make an Irish story of your own.
The Wild Atlantic Way is the world's longest signposted coastal driving holiday route, unveiled by Tourism Ireland in March 2014. Wind your way along the Emerald Isle from the most northerly point of Malin Head in County Donegal to the most southerly of Mizen Head in County Cork. This unbelievable coastal journey is a must do and should make a bullet point on your bucket list. There are numerous stop-offs for the avid photographer to capture jaw-dropping views, such as along the Knockalla Coast Road. It is breathtaking every step of the way.
An easy and consistently signed route, there are things called 'Discovery Points'. These allow you to learn more about lesser known places on the route. The 2,500km route can be driven in one go, however, why not take a breath and take it slow? This will ensure you return home with an unforgettable experience, one structured to how you would like to holiday.
Hidden treasures, the powerful Atlantic Ocean and quaint villages embed this coastline, with delicious cafes and restaurants abundant for you to indulge in. This drive effortlessly weaves together culture, scenery and that special unique Irish air, which soothes any weary voyager straight into a 'craic' filled evening with locals. The Ring of Kerry, a 200km stretch in the South-East, offers some of Ireland's most famous scenery.
Let your days end with crab claws in County Donegal and begin with smoked salmon in County Cork or however way you wish, it is easy to get lost in the slow paced and fresh lifestyle of this green land. Salty sea winds and crashing waves, even the serious surfer will be wondering why Ireland never made an appearance on their favourite surfing DVD. At certain times of the year Aileen's is the place for the perfect wave and is the most incredible place to stop and just capture this majestic power. This route was designed to showcase the west of Ireland, but more importantly, to give you the backdrop and cast so you can direct your own adventures. Too many of us are time-stressed when on holiday, however this no longer need be the case.
