Wild Atlantic Way: Ireland’s Absurdly Gorgeous Coastal Route

Wild Atlantic Way: Ireland’s Absurdly Gorgeous Coastal Route

Story originally published at EuropeUpClose.com.

I stepped off our coach bus unsure of what to expect out of our first stop in County Donegal along the Wild Atlantic Way, a coastal route of about 2,500 kilometers stretching from southern County Cork to the northwestern corner of Ireland. The weather was noticeably cooler than the hot September afternoons I had been experiencing back in Cleveland. Here, the winds were strong and the air as fresh as one would expect of a rural setting. Jackets were a necessity despite the strong sun beaming over the horizon.
