With ancient myths and legends to uncover, amazing landscapes to explore and locals who will be more than happy to reveal local hidden gems, just go where this Emerald Isle takes you.
The Causeway Coastal Route transports you along a stunning coastline, past spectacular scenery, windswept cliffs and unspoilt beaches. It is a coastline sprinkled with historic castles, churches and forts as well as world class attractions like the UNESCO World heritage site at the Giants Causeway, Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Torr Head, Dark Hedges and the famous Bushmills Distillery.
The Wild Atlantic Way is a world-famous coastal route that spans seven of Ireland's counties, taking in some breathtaking scenery along the way. You’ll drive routes that ring great peninsulas reaching out into the ocean. Ireland’s west coast offers some of the world’s most spectacular scenery from the soaring Cliffs of Moher and the unique ‘lunar’ landscape of The Burren to wide, almost deserted sandy beaches and picturesque seaside villages such as Ballyvaughan and Quilty. This driving route offers superb views of the Atlantic Ocean in all its widely ranging moods; from raging torrential storms to calm, emerald seas.
