Drive along Ireland's scenic routes

NatureIreland

Get ready for the ultimate Irish road trip. If you’re looking to combine nature and water, we recommend driving on the scenic Wild Atlantic Way, a 1,500-mile-long route along the ocean, which passes through eight counties. As you travel from north to south, marvel at the dizzying cliffs and green pastures that parade past you, and be sure to look out for some of Ireland's eight million sheep.

On the Dingle Peninsula, cross the Conor Pass and breathe in the fresh air in Europe’s westernmost point. Further north, the impressive Cliffs of Moher stretch for five miles. Want to change course and leave the coast? Reach the Poulnabrone dolmen, in the Burren Plateau, where you can escape into Ireland's Neolithic period.

And if you’re looking to take some side roads, one of our local agents will let you in on a few secrets on Ireland's famous Magic Road, just west of Waterford. As you coast down the hill in neutral, your car will defy the laws of gravity and climb back up the hill on its own. Optical illusion or Irish fairy tale?
