The Wild Atlantic Way is a 2500km (1500 miles) driving route, stretching from Malin Head in County Donegal to Kinsale in County Cork along Ireland’s western seabord. It was launched in February 2014 by Junior Tourism Minister Michael Ring and it traverses the entire rugged and spectacular west coast of Ireland from Cork through counties Kerry, Clare, Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Leitrim to Donegal.
In Mayo the Wild Atlantic Way is a 543km coastal drive and much of Mayo’s spectacular natural scenery lies along it.
In Mayo there are thirty-one Discovery Points and two of them are indicated as Signature Points: Downpatrick Head and Keem Strand. Reading our mini-guide, you can travel the Mayo section of The Wild Atlantic Way or pick your part of the Atlantic coastline to explore.
