Every cairn has a story, every castle turret has a tale, every hill may hide heroic sagas.
Ask the people you meet and you will hear them tell of the legends, triumph and sometimes tragedy that whirl around its round towers, opulent mansions and prehistoric monuments.
And when, of course, you’ve introduced yourself properly, you’ll have stories of your own – of the people you’ve met, of the craic you’ve had and of the memories you’ll cherish for ever.

The Wild Atlantic Way is a sensational journey of soaring cliffs, buzzing towns, hidden beaches and epic bays. So whether you drive it from end-to-end, or dip into it as the mood strikes, it’s going to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
