Wild Atlantic Way
Choose McWilliam Park Hotel as your Wild Altantic Way Hotel
Ireland's most spectacular journey, the Wild Atlantic Way amazes all who are lucky enough to take the full journey or who visit a few of its famous sites along the way. All along Ireland's West Coast from Cork all the way to Donegal are wonderful views, beaches and history. 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 and it traverses the entire rugged and spectacular west coast of Ireland from Cork through counties Kerry, Clare, Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Leitrim to Donegal.
However, we believe that the coastline of Mayo is the most stunning of them all with a 543 km coastal drive displaying Mayo's natural scenery.
In Mayo there are thirty-one Discovery Points and two of them are indicated as Signature Points: Downpatrick Head and Keem Strand in Achill Island. We've highlighted some of the discovery points below that we think are worth a visit.
