Day 1
3 Stops


Kick off your Bay Coast three-day tour on a high note by exploring the offbeat and buzzing Galway City, a perfect base for the adventures in store for today. Fuel up with some of the tastiest food you’ll find anywhere, because you’ll soon be taking to the open road on your way into the “savage beauty” of remote Connemara. Out here, you’ll explore some of the most unique locations in Ireland, meet unforgettable locals and discover just what embracing the Wild Atlantic Way of life is all about.

Day 2
2 Stops


Take time on Day Two of your journey to soak up the sublime scenery and sense of space that characterises Connemara, one of the most remote areas on the Wild Atlantic Way. From its capital in Clifden to the vast parklands, shimmering lakes and glacial fjords, this is a region you won’t soon forget. End your day in colourful Westport, a town where you can really relax into the Wild Atlantic Way of life.

Day 3
2 Stops


Spend your last day getting to know the bustling town of Westport before experiencing one of the Wild Atlantic Way’s best-loved highlights: the Great Western Greenway, which follows the old Newport-Mulranny railway line to Achill Island, offers a peaceful and leisurely trek through the unspoilt Mayo countryside. Whether cycling or strolling its pretty length, you’ll feel like you stepped into a little piece of paradise. As you end your trip on the romantic shores of Achill, make time to reflect on your journey and let the Wild Atlantic Way of life wash over you one last time.
