Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way stretches to 2500 kilometres. Impressive coastal cliffs, lush green landscapes, deep blue or turquoise bays. Pretty peninsulas to drive around. Like Dingle Peninsula that’s just north of the famous Ring of Kerry. Less famous, but just as beautiful.

Our two weeks road trip made us fall for the emerald island. The national parks, the Atlantic Ocean, its scenic drives and coastal hikes, the old stone castles, mansions and ancient ruins… Now let us show you how to experience the best of Ireland.
