The “Wild Altanctic Way” stretches all along the western coast of Ireland and is the longest defined coastal road in the world. We have picked one of the phenomenal stretches of this spectacular 2600 km scenic route. Take in the breath-taking ocean views from Galway to Carrigaholt.

You follow the magical Irish coast down going from incredible cliffs to gigantic waves, from abandoned castles to wild horses running in endless pastures, from vertiginous bridges to amazing flora. Although there will be many opportunities to explore interesting sights by foot, there is one stop that you can’t miss on this trip. Explore the magnificent Cliffs of Moher, at 214 meter above the Altantic Ocean and gaze away in the far distance. We strongly advise you to spend nights in the villages you’ll find on the way to enjoy the Irish hospitality and culture.
