Mayo to Clare Wild Atlantic Way

Continue your exploration of the Wild Atlantic Way by following the coastal route along Mayo to Clare. This strip of the driving route is approximately 527km in length and takes in three signature points, Killary Harbour, Derrygimalagh Bog and the Cliffs of Moher.

Killary Harbour

Killary Harbour Galway Wild Atlantic WayKillary Harbour is a fjord located in the heart of Connemara, forming a natural border between Mayo and Galway. It is one of only three glacial fjords in Ireland and is 16km in length and 45m deep at its centre. On one side lies Mweelrea Mountain, Connaught’s highest mountain, and on the other, the Maumtura Mountains and the Twelve Bens can be seen. Horse-riders will love Killary Harbour as there is no better way to explore 
the region than on a Connemara pony.

Derrygimlagh Bog

Connemara Wild Atlantic WayDerrygimlagh Bog is a wonderful blanket bog in Clifden, Connemara, full of tiny lakes and peat. However, it is not your average bog, as Derrymiglagh was the setting of two extraordinary events during the 20th Century. Along the Bog Road, you can see the remnants of the world’s very first transatlantic wireless radio station which was burned down during the Irish War of Independence. In 1919, Alcock and Brown crash-landed at the end of the very 
first non-stop flight over the Atlantic. A monument
stands at the landing site today.

The Cliffs of Moher

Cliffs of Moher Clare Wild Atlantic WayThe Cliffs of Moher, Co. Clare, hardly need an introduction as they are one of Ireland’s most popular tourist destinations. At their highest, the cliffs stand at a whopping 214m, providing magnificent views over the Twelve Bens, Galway Bay, The Aran Islands and even as far as Dingle Peninsula in Kerry! The visitor centre provides great information on the area, the best viewing platforms and the varied wildlife. For avid walkers, there are plenty of two to
three hour way-marked walks to enjoy.
