Fabulous food & alluring accommodation on one of the world’s greatest touring routes.

Enjoy eight days’ self-drive touring on the wonderful Wild Atlantic Way, stopping at comfortable and inviting handpicked hotels, with guided tours of some of Ireland’s most tempting culinary experiences along the way.

Since its official launch in 2014, Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way has swiftly established itself as one of the must-do activities in Europe. With some 2,500 km of superb driving roads, amidst awe-inspiring scenery, it’s easy to see why so many visitors are attracted to completing its length in as short a time as possible. But we like to take things a little easier…

On this carefully crafted holiday, you’ll see arguably the finest section of the Wild Atlantic Way: Co Cork, a brief swish around Cork City itself to Inchydoney Island in wonderful West Cork, around the Southwest coast via Kenmare and the Ring of Kerry to Dingle. On the way, you’ll enjoy a cookery course at one of Ireland’s most acclaimed spots, a food trail in historic Cork City, a tour of Ireland’s foremost black pudding factory, a gin school distillery visit, a roam among the livestock and tasting at a buffalo farm, a unique and fascinating seaweed stroll at Derrynane, and a foodie dawner around Dingle, where artisanal produce of every kind is waiting to be discovered.
