Two only bleeeeeedin’ gorgeous Irish road trip routes have made it onto a list of the world’s best drives.
And we’ve two lovely, detailed road trip guides to help you explore the best of both of them.
The Wild Atlantic Way and the Causeway Coastal Route made it onto Loney Planet’s list of the top 50 drives on earth, along with the likes of Route 66 and the Great Ocean Road In Australia.
The Wild Atlantic Way road trip
The magnificent Wild Atlantic Way is the world’s longest defined coastal touring route. From Malin Head in Donegal (Ireland’s most northerly point), to Mizen Head in Cork (Ireland’s most southerly point), the route spins across 2,500km of craggy coastline.
For those of you looking to explore the Wilding Atlantic Way, we’ve two different guides for you to dive into:
The Causeway Coastal Route
Rated one of the top five road trips in the world, the Causeway Costal route offers the perfect combination of rugged coastline, dramatic towering cliffs and gorgeous little villages and towns.
For those of you looking to drive the entire 195 mile route, you’ll be treated to endless adventure opportunities – just set aside 3-5 days to give yourself enough time to soak it all up.
Starting in Belfast and ending in Derry, the Causeway Coastal Route follows the coast road through the nine Glens of Antrim, peaking at the Giant’s Causeway before powering on through to its final destination.
