The Wild Atlantic Way is a 2,500km tourism route that stretches from Donegal in the north-west corner to Kinsale, Co. Cork in the south along the western seaboard of Ireland. The route covers some of Ireland’s most dramatic and picturesque coastline and scenery. It includes many of Ireland’s most visited tourist locations such as The Cliffs of Moher, The Burren, The Dingle Peninsula and the Ring of Kerry. Furthermore, it also contains some of the best links golf in Ireland and a Wild Atlantic Way golf vacation will almost certainly end up about more than just the golf.
Starting in the north with Ballyliffin, Rosapenna, Portsalon and Nairn & Portnoo, onwards south to Co. Donegal, Co. Sligo and Enniscrone, this is pure links golf at its finest. The most westerly golf course in Ireland at Carne, followed by Connemara, Lahinch and Doonbeg will bring you as far south as the Shannon Estuary before you reach Ballybunion, Tralee, Dooks and Dingle. The majestic Waterville Golf Links, Hogs Head and Old Head finish off only part of the story of golf along the Wild Atlantic Way, and what a finish. This is arguably the most unspoilt part of Ireland. Many locals call this ‘real Ireland’. It also contains the island’s most varied landscape. From the wild marram grasses and stunning beaches of Donegal, to the rugged Carne, to the almost lunar landscape of Connemara around The Burren, there is so much more to this part of the island.
To celebrate this fabulous part of Ireland we have designed a specific “Wild Atlantic Way” Golf Tour. This tour brings you to some of the highlighted courses above.
