Wild, Rugged, Unspoiled, Untamed - Where the Land & Sea Collide...
It's so easy to get caught up in this faced paced lifestyle, in this
fast moving world. It’s so easy to forget the whip of a salty sea wind
or the noisy thunder of waves. It’s easy to forget that somewhere a warm
orange sun is falling behind cliffs and castles, or that lighthouses
are keeping a blinking watch over a silvery sea. Yes, it's so easy to
forget. But if you need a reminder - we recommend you Go West!
you ever dreamed of embarking on a journey of discovery, to hidden
places and secret worlds where all kinds of enchantments lie waiting for
you? Well now you can, along what is set to be the wildest, most
captivating, coastal driving route in the world – Ireland’s Wild
The Wild Atlantic Way is Ireland's first
long-distance driving route, stretching along the Atlantic coast from
Inishowen Peninsula in Donegal to Kinsale in West Cork. The coastal
route runs for am impressive 2500km from start to finish with a massive
35 major points of interest along the way and hundreds of Discovery Points, many of which are nestled within
easy distance of the Hotel Newport. It's not all about the driving
though - it's about providing linkages to all there is to see and do on
the beautiful West Coast. Cycling, walking, adventure, heritage &
culture, scenery, food and of course the people you meet along the way.
Tucked away in little villages and towns
that snuggle into the coastline are delightful cafes and restaurants,
where you can indulge in your passion for good food and great wine.
Maybe you will hear a few words of Irish spoken along the way in
Ireland’s Gaeltacht (Irish speaking regions) or reignite your passion
for life while surfing on magnificent waves off the coast. Wherever you
go along the Wild Atlantic Way, you will encounter moments of magic,
moments to treasure and experiences that you will want to return to
again and again.
Some are likening The Wild Atlantic Way to “Route
66” in the States or The Great Ocean Road in Australia but either way
when you take this trip you will experience the roadtrip of a lifetime. A
journey where wild, raw beauty is your constant companion, punctuated
with world famous views that will simply take your breath away.
Join us for a journey that will stay with you forever...
