Head out of the city and into the past.
It's usually on the roads less traveled that you'll find the most hidden gems, and this 1,500-mile route in western Ireland is no different. Friendly locals, dramatic coasts, and green landscapes beckon. There's nowhere quite like Dublin or Galway, but sometimes a change of scenery is just what you need. Discover sights like the Slieve League Cliffs, Glenveagh National Park's mountains, and rugged vistas on Achill Island. The Wild Atlantic Way also passes through nine counties, which makes this an ideal place to unearth family roots. Trace your heritage through rural towns set against some of the country's most scenic backdrops.

To take in beautiful scenery off the beaten path. As you head down the Wild Atlantic Way, you'll be treated to breathtaking beauty in the form of green vistas, rocky coastlines, and towering sea cliffs—all without the crowds that can be found at some of Ireland's more famous locales.
