Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way on the outer edge of Europe stretches along the west coast of Ireland.
The Wild Atlantic Way, 2600 km (1600 miles) in length, is one of the longest defined coastal routes in the world.
It begins on the Inishowen Peninsula in Co. Donegal and goes through the counties Leitrim, Sligo, Mayo, Galway, Clare, Limerick and Kerry, finishing in Kinsale, County Cork.
This route from start to finish unfolds the wonders of nature, the power of the ocean and its imprint on the west coast of Ireland, and the stunning countryside in all its diversity. Enchanting villages are nestled along the coast as well as ancient monuments – their origins having long sunk into the mists of oblivion dot the landscape. Behind every bend on this magical coastal road a new delight awaits. The wild Atlantic with its unrestrained and untameable tides and storms has continuously been moulding the west coast of Ireland.
A trip along the Wild Atlantic Way is also an encounter with the past. The route which is divided into 14 stages for easier orientation.
