I've been blessed during my Ireland travels to have visited nearly every kilometer of the Wild Atlantic Way. At 2500km, that's not a little stretch of land.
Now, I didn't do it all at once (though I did plan to a couple years ago, but the trip didn't happen), and neither should you – unless you have 2 months to devote to the drive. Because, and you'll want to trust me on this, you don't want to rush through these areas.

…along Ireland’s sometimes stark, always rugged and never disappointing western coastline, the Wild Atlantic Way is the longest fully sign-posted driving route in the world.
Beginning near the most northerly point of Ireland and ending near the most southerly, the route is filled with breathtaking views, family-friendly activities, and more incredible, fresh, local food than you can imagine.
A drive of the entire route would take 6 weeks to do properly and not feel rushed. But if your Ireland vacation runs 7-10 days, choosing one or two of the highlighted locations below will easily fulfil your Ireland travel dreams.
