It doesn’t get much more epic than this thrilling and comprehensive 20-night trip along the length of Ireland’s acclaimed coastal touring route.

In this, McKinlay Kidd’s 20th-Anniversary year, we’ve created a very special road-trip taking in our favourite jaw-dropping locations all along the 2500km length of the Wild Atlantic Way.

Begin with a ‘How’s i’ goin’?’ in the island city of Cork, home to a 19th-century cathedral, ancient university, and world-famous market. Spear west to the Ring of Kerry and take a boat trip to otherworldly Skellig Michael, before dropping into delightful Dingle. Next, you’re heading north across the mighty Shannon Estuary to Spanish Point in Co Clare and making a detour by boat to the magical Aran Islands. Rounding glistering Galway Bay will find you in the Gaeltacht of wild Connemara, taking a day off from the wheel to travel its coast by e-bike. Wander the multi-coloured streets of wonderful Westport in Co Mayo, just an hour south of achingly pretty Achill Island and its endless strands. Discover the drama of Donegal and its Sliabh Liag cliffs, and finally indulge in a little poetic licence with two days in the reborn city of Derry-Londonderry.

We’ve taken in every kilometre of the Wild Atlantic Way over the past few years, seeking out superb places to stay, the most engaging guides and hidden experiences, delivering all of this in an easy-to-follow package, while leaving space for you to create your own lifelong memories. Perhaps even getting a little lost as you go. Wonderful.
