Itineraries[edit]

  • The Atlantic Drive is signposted and takes you around the peninsula. However, it is easy to get lost as the region is full of interlacing crossroads and taking a wrong turn at an unsignposted intersection is almost inevitable. The best thing to do is enjoy the experience and find your own way around.

Stay safe[edit]

The main danger when travelling in this region is the roads, or lack of them! Travelling on the coastal roads can be hair-raising for those inexperienced with Irish driving. Roads are narrow and twisting, many hug the cliff-face and the driver will not have the time or inclination to admire the surrounding scenery!
