Photo Opportunities along the Wild Atlantic Way

One thing is for sure, there is no end of photo opportunities at the end of what was the known world in Ptolemy’s time. From dramatically sheer drops into the Atlantic ocean backed by towering heather strewn mountains, to tiny inaccessible beaches that have never seen a human footprint. Not to mention the countless, crazy sheep who obviously have no fear of heights perched precariously on the edge of cliffs or fast asleep on the roadsides that wind themselves around and along all 2500 kms of the Wild Atlantic Way.

Great photo opportunities in Ireland

Some of the highlights include the Old Head of Kinsale, although privately owned you will have to ask nicely for permission to have lunch or a drink on the terrace of the luxury golf club overlooking the lighthouse there. The fabled Fastnet lighthouse is another good subject, as are the Skelligs rocks, rising Disney like from the sea, 7km off the tip of the Ring of Kerry. You can get up closer and more personal with stone beehive huts on the Slea Head drive around Dingle which features on most visitors bucket list. As does Coumceenole on the way to Dunquin harbour.

The Cliffs of Moher are also a great photo opportunity, although you might have to jostle for space at the edge, not very wise, as it gets about a million visitors a year. A good tip, if you are travelling independently, but don’t tell anyone I told you, is to go about a half a mile further on, park up at the gate and walk over the track for an uninterrupted view of the famous cliffs. Another happy hunting ground for budding landscape photographers is Connemara Kylemore Abbey, sitting picture postcard pretty as ever a few miles from the aptly named Sky Road in Clifden.
