We have visited Connemara on numerous occasions, and I would recommend this drive to anyone. Spectacular views, hidden beaches and inlets, mountains, pick a sunny day, as the low cloud can roll in.

Amazing road, you must pass this if your in the area! Our guide choose the highroad, a bit windy this day, but still magical.

A coastal drive with many scenic shots. You drive thru many quaint villages with friendly people. Be prepared to be stopped along the way by sheep that wander the road. Enjoyed every minute of the drive.

This is Western Ireland at its best with coastal views wild and wooly. Travelling in November allowed for minimal traffic and some resplendent weather to tour and take in views. The Wild Atlantic Way was truly spectacular in its wildness with coastline that meandered powerfully...More

In this day and age, there are a ton of ways to line up lists of possible stays so that when you get to an area, you can probably find a place; but if you have a plan to see specific things in locations, and can "set a pin... More
