This WAW route gives you a trip to Foynes along the Shannon Estuary Way in County Limerick.

Approx. 48 minutes driving time / 48km

County Limerick is officially included on the Wild Atlantic Way as it does have a discovery point in Foynes.

So I have included a short route here, because if you are travelling on the ferry between Tarbert and Killimer, or vice versa, you may want to include this little trip along the Shannon Estuary Way to Foynes.

This journey travels along the South side of the Shannon Estuary on the Shannon Estuary Way and has some great views of the Estuary.

The treat when you get to Foynes is a visit to the Foynes Flying Boat Museum, worth visiting, which is where the flying boats left from, carrying the rich and famous to America before WWII.

It is also reportedly the birthplace of the original Irish Coffee. The museum has some interesting things to see and you can climb into the control tower.

It is a pleasant drive with few places points of interest along the way.
