Jump into Ireland: 7 days touring the Wild Atlantic Way in a campervan
Ireland is filled with countless surprises. From North to South, from Donegal to Cork, the Wild Atlantic Way offers 2500 kilometres of unspoilt coastline, breath-taking cliffs, unforgettable sunsets, enchanted castles, genuine villages, everlasting folklore, unique gastronomy and local authenticity.
However, we know that surprises shouldn’t be planned but discovered, so that’s why we propose a route without fixed schedules, overcrowded destinations or popular must-sees. Our itinerary is low-cost, self-guided and spontaneous: pick the campervan that better fits you from our Belfast depot, drive southwards along a spectacular scenery during one week and challenge yourself to locate these seven hidden Irish gems on your way:
Park your campervan on the coast of Donegal for few hours and discover the pirate Tory Island. A peaceful environment, great music, local artists and even a real king (Rí Thoraí) will welcome you.
Sligo inhabitants open their “Secret Gardens” to the public from May to September or at any other time by arrangement. Admission is free but charitable donations are appreciated.
Co. Mayo fosters one of the most ancient clapper bridges in the world. Get out of your campervan and take a medieval walk over its stones.
Time to rest in Roundstone Village (co. Galway). Enjoy fresh seafood, a pint with locals and a warm atmosphere in one of its familiar bars.
After exploring the Cliffs of Moher, try to find St. Brigid’s holy well at Liscannor and listen to the legends that pilgrims tell about this Celtic Goddess.
Drive to the top of Geokaun Mountain and break away from the world by admiring a stunning landscape from one of the Ring of Kerry’s highest viewpoints.
Make a last stop on your way back to our Dublin depot and refuel at Murphy’s Stout old pump. Located on the R574, bordering co. Cork, it’s one of Ireland’s best-known but unexplored postcards.
Now is your turn. Book your Bunk Camper, jump into Ireland’s West coast, make your own way and let yourself be surprised by the Wild Atlantic Way.
