Long drives on 'the wrong side of the road' but worth it all. Everywhere we looked, drove, ate and visited was loaded with natural beauty. As the west side if Ireland isn't crowded like the east, we found places where we were looking at the...More

I'd take this company again and the guide Gordon again too but I wish that they had a van with quieter AC and more leg room. I selected the Connemara tour mostly because I wanted to see Kylemore Abbey...oddly most of the bus decided to...More

We drove various parts of the Wild Atlantic Way; we did not really plan to follow it but it definitely followed some very scenic roads. There was very clear signage and a distinctly shape 'rusty wave' marker for places to stop.

We did the loop around the Dingle penisula and enjoyed it throughly. The sites were spectacular and the locals ever so friendly. There are ample stopping points and far too many places to photograph. we actually enjoyed it more than the ring of Kerry!

Amazing views on the part of the road that we went through - around the Burren area, we stopped several times just to take breathtaking pictures.

Wow beautiful drive. So would do this drive again. Beautiful beaches and beautiful scenery. The roads off the main roads are very narrow. A good place to get lost for a day

Gorgeous scenic drive with lots to see and do along the way. If I were to suggest a way to see this part of Ireland, planning routes to include as much of the Wild Atlantic Way would be the way to do it!

I did not drive the entirety of the Wild Atlantic Way, but Idid pick it up frequently on our 2200km road trip. It was truly breathtaking and the views were incredible.

Repeat visits, new exploring, never fails to impress. From Donegal to Kerry the coastal drives are world class with spectacular scenery, with the Atlantic, in all its personalities against a variety of landscapes. From mountains to limestone to lushness. Whatever the weather, there is so...More

My advice is not to try to do too much of it. It could take a good 10 days to do the whole route, more if you meander. Focus on an area. We did Galway to Waterford over a week, staying in different places each night. Notched... More

Kellybegs is a quaint fishing village. Friendly people. Not a lot to do other than sit back and enjoy the view, boats coming in, etc. We are not into a loud nightlife and this little village was perfect but artsy towns... More
Hi, I am looking for advice for our 3 day trip, and how best to make the most of our time. In March we fly to Shannon and early morning and head to Doolin, we want to see the cliffs and have read about the local pub, which would like to visit at night, what else would anyone recommend close by for day one, Day two we are in Galway, again i would like to see the cathedral but need advice on the best bars to visit and things to see on this day, Day 3 Westport, we have been advised on the drive from Galway to Westport the scenic route but any favourite things to do in this area, Day four we plan to visit Achill Island for a few hours until its time to head to Knock to fly home that evening, obviously we have hired a car and have a few ideas just wandering about places I havent found whilst researching, it is a long while since we have been kid free so want to make the most of it day and night time, thank you so much in advance for any comments, oh and all three accommodations have been booked

You have set a bit of ground to cover. The cliffs are very close to Doolin and the pub (s) are fun. I would advise you to try and see a bit of Burren if you can. It is avery different landscape. If you go from Galway to... More
