Highlights of the Wild Atlantic Way in Ireland | The Wild Atlantic Way

Highlights include Malin and Fanad Head on either side of Lough Swilly in the wilds of Donegal.

Tory Island inspired its own school of painters under the stewardship of English artist Derek Hill. And yes, we are still wondering why Bloody Foreland is called that considering its beauty and wildness.

Arranmore and Gola Islands which we sang about as schoolchildren are as remote and unspoiled as ever. Mullaghmore is a surfers paradise backed by Benbulben, our own table mountain and Knockarea with Queen Maibh’s tomb at the top.

Achill Island, is where the painter Paul Henry lived and Ballinacroy the last wilderness in Europe.  Clew Bay has 365 drowned drumlin islands and Ireland’s holy mountain where St Patricks fasted for 40 days and nights.

Connemara with its towering Twelve Bens and inky blue loughs is where you will find Kylemore Abbey and a castle that once belonged to an Indian Maharajah.

The Burren, a bare, grey limestone plateau was once a tropical seabed millions of years ago that is now awash with wild flowers in early summer.

The Cliffs of Moher are midways along the Wild Atlantic way with Doolin your access port to the Aran Islands. Slea Head and the O’Connor Pass are not to be missed in Dingle or the Ring of Kerry which starts and finishes in beautiful Killarney on the shore of the famous lakes, Muckross House and Ross Castle.

Kenmare has gained itself a serious reputation for good food while the Beara Peninsula is remote quiet and very beautiful indeed, although the Healy Pass is not for the faint hearted.

West Cork is a flower filled delight of sleepy painted villages surrounding Roaring Water Bay which culminate in Kinsale, the gourmet capital of Ireland.
