The Wild Atlantic Way (or WAW) is a 2600-2700km route, developed by Fáilte Ireland, which travels along the rugged West Coast of Ireland. The WAW takes you through 9 counties on the Wild Atlantic Way out of the 32 counties on the Island of Ireland.
The following Irish counties are directly on the Wild Atlantic Way route (North to South). Click on the links to visit that county.
These counties are all in the Republic of Ireland and are part of the provinces of Ulster, Connaught and Munster.
The Wild Atlantic Way route map looks like this:
This site has a full description of the routes through the different counties with information about the points of interest along the way.
Go to the ROUTES page to find the link to the blog post on each county and download the relevant route you need to your phone or tablet or explore the places to visit.
Northern Ireland (which is part of the UK) has 6 counties. Northern Ireland has the Causeway Coastal Route along the Northern part of the Island that follows the coast from Derry to Belfast.
The Causeway Coastal Route is not part of the Wild Atlantic Way, and is much shorter.
But it also covers some nice scenery and passes memorable places such as the Giant’s Causeway, the rope bridge at Carrick-a-Rede and Portrush Beach, amongst others.
I have now added this route to this site. You can find it here: Causeway Coastal Route.
