Duration: 6 days
Explore the western coastline of Ireland and Northern Ireland on an action-packed 6-day tour from Dublin! Referred to as the Wild Atlantic Way, the western shores boast untold delights with wild coastal landscapes fringed by the untamed splendor of barren peninsulas and vast national parks. Hikes and open-water swims are included, as are excursions to Donegal Castle, Kylemore Abbey and more. Even better, 3- to 4-star hotel or guesthouse accommodation is included in Donegal, Rosses Point, Wesport, Clifden and on Achill Island.
Your 6-day tour introduces you to the best of Northern Ireland and Ireland’s west coast, an area of impressive beauty, dubbed by marketeers as the Wild Atlantic Way. Venture off the well-trodden tourist trail to scout out remote coastal areas inhabited by friendly locals, and discover unspoiled parkland framed by craggy mountains and eroding sea cliffs.
In addition to several activities such as open-water swimming, hiking and cycling, your itinerary leaves rooms for some interesting optional activities, too. Try your hand at ‘stand up paddle boarding’ (SUP) on the secluded Lough Gill and relax in a traditional seaweed bath for a skin-softening treat.
Three- to four-star guesthouse and hotel accommodation is included in lively towns in the counties of Donegal, Mayo, Sligo, Connemara and Galway, and ample free time is included for you to visit the town’s lively, traditional pubs in between excursions.
