We’ve already said that Ireland has many beautiful landscapes and places to visit. One of them is right on our doorstep at Swuite Galway and is a “must see experience” for one and all!
The Wild Atlantic Way has a spectacular 2,500km coastline with beautiful beaches, glimmering waves, cliffs towering over the sea and many fantastic stops along the way. It is one of the longest defined coastal roads in the world and takes you along the breath-taking Irish west coast, from the Inishowen Peninsula in Co. Donegal at the tip and right down to the picturesque town of Kinsale, Co. Cork.
From start to finish, along the route you will experience natural wonders including the powerful Atlantic Ocean and the stunning Irish countryside. There are many villages you will find tucked away with many hidden historical features. Around every bend on this route, a new enchantment awaits you each time.
On the Wild Atlantic Way, you will get to experience many amazing activities and make sure you stop off at each of the signature discovery points – you can get a Wild Atlantic Way passport too to prove you’ve completed the world’s longest coastal route!
Dipping in and out of the Gaeltacht which are Irish speaking areas, Irish traditions have stood the test of time and you can hear the beautiful Irish language spoken. Traveling the Wild Atlantic Way is one of the best ways to engage with the wonderful Irish culture, both current and of the past.
How to get here and start your journey
For those arriving into Dublin, check out Swuite Dublin before you make your way down to Galway to begin your Wild Atlantic Way journey. The route can be tackled all at once, or you can visit the different peninsula’s individually (an excuse to come back again!).
After your “Swuite stay” in Dublin, finding your way to Galway is pretty easy as you can travel via train with Irish Rail, or by bus with GoBus, CityLink and Bus Eireann. If public transport isn’t your thing and you want to see the sights along the way, you can also rent a car (just make sure you stay on the left side of the road!). Galway is just a 2-hour 30-minute drive from Dublin city.
For those who have the opportunity to fly into Shannon International Airport or Knock International Airport, we are just a 1-hour and 15-minute drive away.
There is much Ireland has to offer and you can experience so when you travel the Wild Atlantic Way.
