Explore Ireland's beautiful Wild Atlantic Way, from Cork to Kerry.

The Wild Atlantic Way is Ireland’s first long-distance driving route. The whole journey runs from Kinsale in County Cork, all the way up the west coast to the Inishowen Peninsula in County Donegal, showcasing the drama and scenery of the west coast.

Our Wild Atlantic WayDiscover Cork & Kerry self-drive tour takes a leisurely approach to the first section of the route, exploring the south-west of Ireland with its many peninsulas “pointing” to the open Atlantic, creating sheltered bays, small islands to explore, sandy beaches and small coastal villages, with great food and lots of live music.  A great touring area – from the famous Ring of Kerry and Dingle peninsula, to many, often overlooked, alternatives – such as Mizen Head and Ring of Beara. This holiday features hand-picked accommodation in delightful guest houses and coastal hotels.  Wherever you travel, you will encounter moments of magic, moments to treasure and experiences that you will want to return to, again and again.
