DSCN0954So this post already got published on the An Óige website a while ago, however as we were at that time on our last trip through Ireland it completely slipped my mind to share it here!

The Wild Atlantic Way

DSCN0245

As I had mentioned a loooong time ago; Imke and I went on an amazing roadtrip all across the west coast of Ireland. Following the Wild Atlantic Way. An amazing route along the coastal roads of the west coast, offering amazing and scenic views, from ragged cliffs to high mountains and rolling hills. Ireland really has everything! I had never imagined it to be as beautiful as it is! I always imagined Ireland as green rolling hills, some cliffs here and there but that was about it. The landscape was so much more varied and with so much more raw mountains than I expected(I don’t know about you, but I didn’t really expect high mountains atall!) Our trip was quite extensive as you can see on the map of our route;

This was roughly our route; we ended up taking a slightly different route from Cork to Blackvalley, but I’ll be sharing a post on that soon!:), stayed at hostel 12 (Dún Chaoin) as well and saw a bit more of the coastal roads than we planned. At one point I will get around to making a detailed map of how we ended up driving!

I fell even more in love with this country during that roadtrip!

I’ll be posting more about the things we saw and experienced during our time on the road. But for now I just want to share Imke’s blog posts of tips for those wishing to drive the Wild Atlantic Way!
