As an island nation on the western fringe of Europe, Ireland has an advantage over most countries when it comes to scenic coastal drives. Our shoreline boasts some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, rich in local traditions and characters, which mingle to create an unforgettable experience.
The Wild Atlantic Way is the world’s longest signed coastal drive at more than 2,500km (1,600 miles) and perhaps Ireland’s best-known driving route. Many of our finest coastal drives are found along this route, though there are others scattered around the coastline making Ireland the ideal road trip destination, especially if you have one of our Driver Guides at the wheel.
We guarantee they will take you through traditional rural outposts where Irish Gaelic is still spoken, sea breezes blow in the freshest air, fish from local boats is on the menu, tweeds are woven on wooden looms, sheep gaze at the crashing sea below and fiddlers play sessions in the pubs.
