Your Cliff Coast and Southern Peninsulas itinerary begins in what is arguably the most unique and unforgettable location in Ireland - The Burren. A strange and striking karst landscape, its eerie appearance and otherworldly allure is matched in peculiarity by the abundance of life it supports - there are species here that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. Take time to explore all that this one-of-a-kind region has to offer; you won’t soon forget it.

Day 2
3 Stops


Let Mother Nature work her magic on you today as you trace your way along the Cliff Coast from Doolin to Miltown Malbay and on toward the Loop Head Peninsula and, finally, Kilkee. You’ll see wild marvels like the Great Stalactite and the cliffs at Loop Head, and get up close and personal with the wonderful people who make this region as distinct as it is.

Day 3
3 Stops


From one county to another, today’s route will bring you further afield as you prepare to make your way south into the Southern Peninsulas region of the Wild Atlantic Way. Here, embracing this way of life is all about honouring man’s relationship with nature, and the creativity, innovation and rich traditions that have resulted from living a life in touch with the elements. From historical Tarbert to literary Listowel and on to dynamic Dingle, it’ll be a day to remember.

Day 4
1 Stops


There’s no better way to truly embrace the Wild Atlantic way of life than by spending a day in one of the route’s most vibrant towns - Dingle. Take a break from all that driving and get to know this very special part of Ireland, where local artists rub shoulders with artisan food producers; where musicians from all over the world come to share song and stage with legendary local players; where the small-batch beer and whiskey renaissance is in full swing, and where everything - from family-friendly activities to craic-filled nightlife - has a distinctly Dingle twist.

Day 5
2 Stops


Enjoy your final day on the Wild Atlantic Way by visiting some of the most special spots in the Southern Peninsulas. In Dingle and Killorglin, at Rossbeigh and finally, Cahersiveen, you’ll find essential examples of how life out west has been shaped by the elements. With breathtaking vistas around practically every corner and an irresistibly rich history to dig down into, you’ll come away from your journey with a renewed sense of time, place, and even self. Make the most of it.
