Atlantic Edge Escape

Discover Ireland's best kept secret

Unlock the west of Ireland's varied and beautiful landscape with this Wild Atlantic Way coastal tour.   Our journey along the Atlantic Edge of Ireland will explore some of the most remote and wildest places in the country taking in spectacular cliff walks, pristine beaches and dramatic sea stacks.    

The town of Sligo is our starting point, known as the Surf Coast, and from this vibrant town we will spend the week hiking along the Wild Atlantic Way to finish up in the city of Galway.  Along the way we will get to know the origins Ireland's famous myths and legends whilst visiting iconic heritage sites of this ancient landscape.

From Sligo this seven day walking tour continues to the rarely explored North Mayo coastline, Achill Island, Ireland's largest offshore island, and Ballycroy/Wild Nephin National Park. Our journey will wander south along Clew Bay where it is said there is an island for every day of the year!  From the heart of the Wild Atlantic Way you'll enjoy Ireland's Big Sky country and a true sense of Ireland's wild side.  

Each evening we will relax in luxurious accommodation and sample some of Mayo's Finest food from land and sea. With it's location on the Wild Atlantic Way, we have some of the finest, freshest seafood (crab, lobster, mussels, oysters, wild salmon) in the world. Our world famous, sea-spray mountain lamb, is a taste sensation. Add to this our fresh, organically grown local produce, local cheeses, artisan breads and a locally brewed craft beer, you certainly won't go hungry.
