The Wild Atlantic Way provides over 2,500km of coastline, much of it best explored on foot. Numerous paths, trails and looped walks provide excellent hiking, trekking, and rambling, and can be accessed throughout much of the year. 

With six different regions comprising the entirety of the route, walkers can choose from a range of terrains, from bogland and forest to foothills, mountains, beaches and coastal cliffs. 

Some of the more sought-after walks on the Wild Atlantic Way include the Baltimore Heritage Trail in County Cork and the ancient Pilgrims Path at Sliabh Liag in County Donegal. 

Ireland’s longest off-road trail, the Great Western Greenway, traverses Ireland’s Atlantic coast in County Mayo, between Westport town and Achill Island, passing through the villages of Newport and Mulranny.
