Wild Atlantic Way

The Wild Atlantic Way is a sensational journey of soaring cliffs and buzzing towns and cities, of hidden beaches and epic bays. So whether you drive it from end-to-end, or dip into it as the mood strikes, it’s going to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Lough Rynn Castle is a perfect location to avail of a day trip to see some of the Wild Atlantic Way’s best discovery points in the North West. Only 1hr 20mins from the Castle is Mullaghmore,  jutting out of Sligo’s northern edge, close to the county’s boarder with Donegal, this small peninsula sits dramatically out into the North Atlantic.

The waters here are simply photogenic. While you’re in the neighborhood, why not head down to Strandhill ad indulge in the traditional Irish detox therapy of a warm seaweed bath


MULLAGHMORE HEAD

Mullaghmore  is a small fishing village that should be on any outdoor enthusiast’s itinerary. The sandy beach here stretches as far as the eye can see and is ideal for a spot of swimming or windsurfing. You can also venture out into the Atlantic for an excursion to Inishmurray Island or a sea angling trip.

DOWN PATRICK HEAD

Downpatrick Head is a majestic heritage site found about 5km north of Ballycastle village. Jutting out into the ocean and rising almost 40m above the waves, it provides unparalleled views of the Atlantic, including the unique collection of islands known as the Staggs of Broadhaven. You can also spot the nearby Dún Briste sea stack, with its different coloured layers of rock and nesting sea birds.

SLIABH LIAG

One of the highest and finest marine cliffs in Europe, County Donegal’s Sliabh Liag (Slieve League in English) are not to be missed. To make the
most of your visit, it’s best to leave your car in the car park and walk the few kilometres to the cliffs. As you climb toward the top of Sliabh Liag – which at 601m high is not a place for the faint-hearted – there are terrific views of the Atlantic Ocean, Donegal Bay and the Sligo Mountains.

road with spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean.
