Meandering 1,500 miles (2,500 km) from Cork in the South to Donegal in the North, you will be overwhelmed by choices on a self-drive tour of the Wild Atlantic Way. Our in-depth local knowledge – we won’t send you anywhere we haven’t been ourselves – will help you discover the real Ireland. We’ll advise on which of the profusion of Wild Atlantic Way squiggly signposts are really worth the detour, helping you find beautiful yet deserted beaches, recommending the best spots for great sunsets and suggesting where to leave the main roads behind and continue by bike or on foot. Bring your own car if you wish from the UK, or fly into Ireland and we’ll arrange a rental vehicle for you.
Often it is better to take your time and explore a smaller section of the Wild Atlantic Way in detail, uncovering hidden gems, or relaxing on a boat trip to an Irish island, rather than rushing along the main tourist route. Let us know what you prefer and we can pace your holiday to suit.
If the thought of driving and navigating your own way along the Wild Atlantic Way is a little daunting, why not explore car-free instead? We also have a variety of other Irish train holidays that take in part of the route: we are expert in planning rail trips, linking in local guides, experiences and authentic accommodation, so you don’t need to miss out.
