Looped Walks of the Wild Atlantic Way

From long hikes to simple strolls, you’ll find an abundance of scenic looped walks dotted along the expansive length of the Wild Atlantic Way.

Easy to navigate, these walks highlight areas of local interest and beauty and are found in every region. Look out for signposted walks where you can walk amongst breathtaking landscapes, before returning back to where you started to mingle with locals and savour the relaxed pace of the west. 

Signposted Walking Routes on the Wild Atlantic Way

Looped walks offer varying distances and terrains. Starting and finishing at the same point means you can park the car and leave your belongings there, without having to carry a big bag on your adventure. Bring a rain jacket and wear good walking shoes, and don’t forget to pack a couple of snacks, water and a charged mobile phone. Help to protect Ireland’s unspoilt environment by familiarising yourself with the outdoor ethics guide before you start out.
