A journey of discovery

Experience one of the wildest, most enchanting and culturally rich coastal touring routes in the world. Wherever you tWild Atlantic Way Route Map_IrishFoodGuide2ravel along the Wild Atlantic Way you’ll find magic, adventure, history and beauty in abundance.

It is Ireland’s first long distance driving route stretching 2,750 km (1,700 miles) along the west coast from Co. Cork in the south to Co. Donegal in the north.

Visit craft-shops and culinary enterprises, snuggle in cosy tucked away pubs, find sanctuary in old monastic sites, let your heart beat in time with the Celtic rhythm, learn the histories and tales of ancient castles, pick up some words of Irish, swim, surf, fish, trek and dance.

So why not make The Ardagh Hotel & Restaurant your halfway stop. Come enjoy a breath taking sunset in the bay over dinner, whilst tasting some fine locally sourced seafood and home grown vegetables and salad. Then wind down in front of our many large open fireplaces enjoying a few drinks after a long day on the road. Finally settle down for the night in our luxurious super-king beds and re-energise for the journey ahead waking to the view of the Wild Atlantic from your room.
