An epic journey of discovery along 2,500 km of Ireland’s western seaboard… The Wild Atlantic Way …Ireland’s first long distance driving coastal route.
Stretching from Donegal’s Malin Head in the North to Cork’s Mizen Head in the South, this is the longest defined coastal drive in the world. Wild and untamed, free and unbridled this breath-taking route has some of the most dramatic and dazzling coastal views in the world!
The Wild Atlantic Way is a route that showcases the sheer magnificence of Ireland’s West coast from stunning headlands and beaches to colourful villages and towns all infused with the history, heritage and tradition of this rugged coastline. 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, dance and drive your way along this enthralling route.
Limerick Racecourse is located in Patrickswell just 30 KM from Foynes and the Wild Atlantic Way, well worth a stop of when racing is taking place to enjoy the wonderful sport of kings and a great Irish tradition.
