Best Places On Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way To Visit Cliffs of Moher

Stretching over 1,600 miles, the Wild Atlantic Way is an iconic drive in Ireland. Stretching from the beautiful Inishowen Peninsula to Kinsale, it’s arguably one of Europe’s most beautiful drives. Not only that, there are heaps of places on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way to visit. There are hundreds of stopping points! 

Over the years, we’ve explored so much of the Island of Ireland, from, exploring cities like; Dublin and Belfast, to visiting Galway on the westerly fringes of Europe. Ireland is a stunning country that’s so great to visit on a road trip. 

So, to help you get the most out of your visit, I’m sharing the top places on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way (and the sider vicinity) that you won’t want to miss.

Plus, I’ve also provided a Google Maps point for each place, so you can easily add these to your map.

Now, I’m not detailing them in any particular route or order, and there’s a good reason why. Most people only join sections of the Wild Atlantic Way or drive alternating routes which makes it hard to pinpoint the most iconic places. Hopefully, our guide will serve as inspiration on where to start and stop your journey in Ireland. 

Have an amazing time visiting Ireland. 

1.) Cliffs of Moher

Probably one of Ireland’s most breathtaking shorelines, the Cliffs of Moher are one spot you can’t miss. North of the city of Galway, about a 90-minute drive, the Cliffs of Moher are just breathtaking. 

Spanning around 10 miles of the coastline in County Clare, the Cliffs of Moher are best visited on your trip between Limerick and Galway, taking the coastal Wild Atlantic Way route. 

Towering over the Atlantic Ocean, you’ll get to see O’Brien’s Tower, and head for a stroll along the Burren Way. It’s one of the best ways to view the Cliffs of Moher, especially at sunset (as it’s westerly facing).

To make things easier, book this Cliffs of Moher day trip from Galway. It’s amazing and you’ll get to experience the sheer dramatic beauty of the coastline and the Aran Islands. It’s a whole-day trip and totally worth it. Just be sure to book these tickets in advance, they do sell out at busy times. 

Though, a heads up, make sure to take a windbreaker jacket with you. The wind can get so intense after travelling for thousands of miles and hitting the Irish coastline.

For ease of navigation, add this point on Google Maps. It’ll take you right…
