Discover a Dreamworld - Experiences to Savor on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way

Out at the very edge of Europe, the Wild Atlantic Way stretches 1500 miles along 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:

Learn of a 'dreamworld' on an Atlantic crag: Boat trips to the UNESCO World Heritage Site Skellig Michael are only possible when the weather is fine. And numbers are limited to safeguard this remarkable place. But you can still get a sense of the stunning achievement of the early Christians who built their hermitage on this jagged ocean crag. 1500 years ago - described by George Bernard Shaw as "part of our dreamworld" - from the film they show at the Skellig Experience Visitor Center on Valentia Island. Then it's a short drive or a walk up to the top of nearby Geokaun Mountain, whose gentle owner Muiris O'Donoghue will show you panoramic views of the Skelligs themselves, and tell you stories from the edge of the world.
