Top 12 Activities Along Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way
With so much to see and do along Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way, its hard to decide! Here are the top 12 activities to experience along the way!
Angling: cast your line in the Atlantic swell, feel the salty surge beneath your feet, hook your catch, sail for deserted shores, cook your feast.
Water Activities: Experience the mighty swell of the Atlantic with a plethora of spine-tingling water activities ranging from surfing to windsurfing and kiteboarding or scuba dive in crystal clean waters to check out the abundant sea life.
Cafes: Meander into warm cosy cafes dotted like pots of jam along the western seaboard; recharge with organic cheeses, artisan breads and charcuterie, wolfed down with tea or Fairtrade coffee from across the ocean.
Cycling: freewheel along the edge of Europe where few cars go. Meander along country lanes, skirt jagged cliffs, croppy outposts of rocks and sparkling beaches; cool off in forest glades. Stop only to rest awhile amidst the salt filled Atlantic air.
Nature and Wildlife: Experience a myriad of colors all in one day; smell the salty Atlantic landscape after sun and rain; discover flowers amidst the crevices of the limestone plateaux; spot a Golden Eagle along the North Western seaboard; hoops of dolphins off Loop Head or the black hump of a whale in West Cork.
Pubs and Bars: at the end of the day or even if you're halfway through its nice to stroll in and sample a craft beer or the local brew; have a chat with locals; perhaps listen to a tin whistle or two.
Tracing Your Ancestry: Reconnect with your past to discover new places of old.
Golf: Perfect that swing on magnificent parklands and links courses rated amongst the Top 10 courses in the world!
