From Derry in the north to County Cork in the south, this exhilarating ride along the rugged west coast of Ireland takes in an impressive series of mountains, seas, beaches and bays. Early on, the wilderness of Donegal will capture your heart as you thread through stunning elemental scenery on the road south.

Reaching the lush splendour of Co. Sligo there are detours aplenty to tempt you, perhaps connecting with your literary side here in the land of WB Yeats. As Co. Mayo calls, so too does Irish history with heritage centres and museums documenting darker times of famine and dispersal from this hauntingly beautiful place.

The road rolls on, as exuberant Galway arrives with its bars full of belly-filling local food and toe-tapping traditional song, before beautiful Connemara National Park and its breathtaking peninsula lures us away once more. Then onwards, to the music, culture and limestone landscape of Co. Clare as the wild coastline continues including the dramatic Cliffs of Moher.

We soon find ourselves in beautiful Co. Kerry with its emerald fields of fertile farmland, breath-taking mountain passes and lively town of Killarney. The Ring of Kerry, the Skellig Islands and the Dingle Peninsula are must-see sights along the way.

Then finally the sprawling lands of Co. Cork conclude this epic journey and after making it from one end of this wonderful country to the other you’ll have made memories to last a lifetime.
