Exploring Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way

During my blogtastic adventures  in The Republic of Ireland I was fortunate enough to explore The west of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, A long distance touring route stretching along the Atlantic coast of Ireland from Donegal to West Cork.

Check out this awesome video by Failte Ireland to see what the Wild Atlantic Way is all about.

While I didn’t get to travel the entire “Wild Atlantic Way” in it’s entirety I was lucky enough to be taken on a breathtaking journey through the west of the route with 20 other travel bloggers over 3 amazing days where I got to take a glimpse into the heart Of Ireland’s west coast.

And of course no trip to Ireland would be complete without sampling it’s mouthwatering cuisine, From sampling local artisan foods in Mulranny Park Hotel, Fresh locally made clam Chowder in Newport, Irish breakfast’s and of course no trip to Ireland would be complete with some Irish Whiskey tasting.

I went on this trip as a guest of  Fáilte Ireland. They did not request that I write a positive review and all opinions expressed here, are my own.
