Cruise Ireland's Fjord - Experiences to Savor on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way

Out at the very edged of Europe, the Wild Atlantic Way stretched 1500 miles alond Ireland's western seaboard. From Malin Head in Co Donegal to Kinsale in Co Cork, through regions like Connemara, Galway Bay and Kerry, it's the longest defined coastal drive in the world!

Here is just one of the experiences to savor on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way:

Cruise on Ireland's only fjord: With luck, a pod of dolphins will accompany you for some of your cruise on Killary Harbour, said by some to be Ireland's only true fjord. Dotted with mussel rafts, with mountains to the north and south, the fjord reaches due east from the Atlantic for 10 miles, ending at the Asleagh Falls. Killary Cruises start from a mile or so outside the village of Leenane on the road to Clifden at 'Nancy's Point'. Leenane is known as the Gateway to Connemara - you may recognise some of the locations from the movie version of John B Keane's poignant play "The Field" filmed here in 1989.
