If you are starting your tour of the ‘Wild Atlantic Way’ in the South of Ireland, you will begin right outside our door! Kinsale is the designated starting point of what is the longest, defined coastal touring route in the world. The ‘Wild Atlantic Way’ which stretches 2,500 miles from Cork to Donegal is a spectacular driving route with remarkable coastlines and breath-taking scenery. It is an experience like no other.

Please ask us for all our personal recommendations of places to stay and eat along the way and all those secret discoveries we’ve made over the years. We would be delighted to share some of our favourites with you to make your Wild Atlantic Way experience truly unforgettable.


The southernmost stretch of the Wild Atlantic Way zigzags gently, from Kinsale through Skibbereen and on to dreamy Bantry Bay. Past gardens lush with sub-tropical plants and between hedgerows thick with fuschia and monbretia. By hundreds of inlets, tiny coves, safe harbours and Blue Flag beaches, just right for long days spent in the salty air… beachcombing, island-hopping, whale-watching, learning to sail, kayaking on a saltwater lake in the moonlight, or simply enjoying a pint on the quayside while the fishing boats land their catch. There’s something restorative about the temperate Gulf Stream climate, the peaceful vibe and creative scene. There’s West Cork’s wonderful artisan food. Thriving arts and crafts. Scores of festivals – music, film, stories, food... 

And history, echoing all along this coast: ancient sites, coastal forts, Michael Collins’ home town, the wreck of the Lusitania, and – out on the horizon – ‘Ireland’s tear drop’ the Fastnet Rock.
