The 2022 Bucket List Road Trip: 4 Weeks Exploring Ireland (Full Route + Itinerary)

The 2022 Bucket List Road Trip: 4 Weeks Exploring Ireland (Full Route + Itinerary)

Howaya! So, this Ireland road trip guide took a fair whack of time to research, plan out, and write.

It’s also pretty damn long.

If you don’t have 4 weeks to explore, you’ll find much shorter road trip routes in our Ireland road trip guide section.

Below, you’ll find a detailed itinerary to follow if you have 28 days to road trip around Ireland. Here’s a look at the route.

4 weeks in Ireland: A rough route overview

The dodgy map above (Photoshop was never my strong point) shows a very rough outline of the route that you’ll find in the guide below.

Here’s what you’ll get if you take the time to read it:

  • A useful, detailed guide that removes the pain from planning:
  • You’ll get an hour-by-hour (literally!) guide to each day
  • Clear, concise itineraries to follow
  • Advice on things to do along with recommendations on where to eat, sleep and drink

Yep, it’s long – so, if you’re stuck for time, sign up to our mailing list (no spam – only good stuff) at the bottom of this page and I’ll fire it onto you to read later.

Table of Contents

I’ve split this post up into different pages – this has nothing to do with getting more pages read or ad revenue (apologies for the ads, by the way).

Personally, I hate when sites do this, but in this case, I had to. Although I’ve done everything in my power to make this website speedy, this guide is long and tends to load much slower than 98% of our other guides.

So, I’ve given each day a dedicated page, which should make it easier for you to browse.

Just click one of the days below to dive in

I've been following your website and the information is invaluable! We are beginning a 30 day Wild Atlantic Way trip on Sept 29. I would love to download your 28 day itinerary so it's available in a pdf we can use without wifi, but I cannot find the link that you reference?? Can you send me the link?

Not sure if you are still monitoring this but if you are please send me email with this fabulous guide. I recently spent two weeks in the Republic and cannot wait to go back and see Northern Ireland.

Hi Keith, I enjoyed spending a few hours reading through this amazing itinerary of Ireland and I can't wait to get to my road trip this Fall. It will be my first time visiting Ireland :) Thank you for sharing all the information and pictures! ~Amanda in California, USA
