Sun Set over the Aran Islands - 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:

Watch the sun set over the Aran Islands: The viewing platform at O'Brien's Tower is said to be the best place to see the sunset from the iconic Cliffs of Moher. The tower was built at the highest point on the cliff edge in 1835, as an observation point for tourists, by far-sighted landowner Cornelius O'Brien. Before arriving at the Tower, you could try a guided walk along the cliff-edge paths with a Cliffs of Moher ranger. The walks take just over an hour and depending on the time of year, you'll see the puffins, guillemots, kittiwakes, chough, peregrine falcone, fulmar, and shags among other birds.
