Celebrate the anniversary of the Wild Atlantic Way with an EV road trip.

The 10th anniversary of the creation of Ireland’s now world-famous coastal touring route, brings a self-drive holiday blending the bucolic and the beautiful with the bang up-to-date.

The Wild Atlantic Way, 2,600km of some of the finest driving roads in Europe, quickly established itself as a mainstay of tourism in Ireland, and it continues to garner acclaim from visitors from around the world. What better way to experience this than to travel sustainably in swift silence by ultra-efficient Electric Vehicle? We’ve ensured route planning to suit, with overnight stops providing charging facilities.

And there’s more to the Wild Atlantic Way than simply terrific, twisting Tarmac. The west coast of Ireland features quite staggering scenery along its entire length from Malin Head to West Cork, with skyscraping cliffs, vast stretches of beach and multi-coloured villages; ancient and modern history in which to get lost; wonderful food that changes with the landscape; heart-stopping art and music; and Europe’s westernmost city. Oh, and not forgetting the people. Some of the world’s friendliest and most welcoming people.
