Beautiful place to visit with breath-taking iconic Irish scenery. I recommend hiring a bicycle to enjoy the views.

The Wild Atlantic Way is the coastline route along Western Irelands coast, we explored it around the Galway Bay area and had a lovely time. Galway itself is a good base to explore from, Salthill is the nearby seaside town with some lovely views and...More

We dipped into this many times while on a weeks holidays. It’s well worth seeking out some of the more remote sections as there are spectacular views and empty beaches, in October anyway!

Definitely do the ferry trip to the Aran islands and along the Cliffs of Moher. It's so cool to see the Cliffs from both points of view

I am not sure if it's possible to visit Ireland without driving on the Wild Atlantic Way at some point. Make a point to see as much of it as possible as every bit of it is scenic and beautiful.

Every turn you make on this drive just makes your jaw drop in awe. From the ocean views to the wonderful landscapes it is all amazing.

Very narrow roads, but I don’t think I saw anyone speeding. It is doable but give yourself extra time for driving. Good luck

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
