5 Day Wild Atlantic Self-Drive

5 Day Wild Atlantic Self-Drive

From €635 pp

Overview

Carroll’s Tours offer a unique 5 Day Wild Atlantic Self-Drive. On this drive you will explore Ireland’s beautiful far West – starting in Dublin City heading West to Ireland’s Cultural Capitol – Galway City and out to Inishmore largest of the Aran Islands. Spectacular boat journey out into the Atlantic. Hire bikes and head up to majestic cliff top forts and watch the sun go down in a magical unforgettable way.

This is where ice-age landscapes meet west-coast warmth, and music is a way of life. Its a place for clifftop walks, island-gazing, sunsets and traditional pubs … and soul-stirring views: rainbows in the ocean spray. From the crystal waters of the deep Atlantic to the “savage beauty” of much-loved Connemara, this is the Wild Atlantic Way. Connemara means “inlets of the sea” in Irish, and here water and land merge in a lacy shoreline of loughs, coves, islands and sea-swept blanket bogs.
