Perhaps the Wild Atlantic Way’s least-visited section, the Surf Coast of Sligo and Mayo are as wild and dramatic as they are laid-back and carefree. As the childhood inspiration of Ireland’s national poet, W.B. Yeats, Sligo has a plethora of ancient Neolithic monuments older than the Pyramids of Giza. Explore the mysteries and mythologies along the Wild Atlantic Way northwest on a private tour of this little-known but wonderful region.
On this self drive trip, you’ll hike Ireland’s only roadless hills, paddle the gentle waters of one of Ireland’s most breathtaking lakes and cycle along Ireland’s first greenway. Your trip along the Wild Atlantic Way will end in a bustling market town reminiscent of a bygone Ireland.
