My 5-Day Wild Atlantic Road Trip Guide: Itinerary, Photos + Loads More

At the beginning of 2018 I headed off on a solo 5-day road trip around Ireland.

If you follow us on Instagram, you may remember this as the trip where I made absolute shit of a drone…

#DroneGate aside, it was an amazing 5 days that took me from Dublin to Cork, on to Kerry, and then up to Galway before finishing in Mayo.

Over the course of the trip, thousands of people mailed, commented and sent messages about sharing this 5-day Ireland itinerary.

So, here it is for you to steal.

“Wait – 5 days is no where near enough time to explore Ireland” 🤔🤔

You’re right.

You’d need a whole load of time to explore all of Ireland.

This 5-day Ireland itinerary is for people that have a limited amount of time to explore and that want to pack as much into the 5 days as physically possible.

Have more time to spare? Check out our road trip guide hub for longer road trip guides.

OK – let’s get cracking! Here’s the route that I took 

I started in Dublin as that’s where I live, but you can adapt your starting point if you need to.
