Travelling from Dublin, you will leave the crowds and noise behind and begin your journey along the Wild Atlantic Way. Your journey will cover 1,100 km of rugged Irish coastline from Westport to Dingle. You will take part in as many adventures and see all the iconic sights we can squeeze in along the way.

Unwind with some local craft beers and excellent food in Westport Town. Experience “the craic” at a traditional Irish music session in Matt Molloy’s bar.
Depart Westport for the wilds of Connemara. Take in the breathtaking views of the Inagh Valley en route to the Aran Island ferry en route to Rosaveal Pier. You will be picked up by our skipper from Charter Ireland Sailing. From there, you will have lunch on board the yacht and take a trip to the Island around Galway Bay. Arrive on rugged Inis Mór, the largest of the Aran Islands in glorious Galway Bay. Explore the island, meet the locals and learn some “Gaeilge”.

After a dinner and some night life on Inis Mór, you will return to the boat overnight and depart for Rosaveel the next morning after a hearty breakfast onboard.
