If you’re planning on tripping around Ireland, then grab your beanie, your raincoat and your map and listen closely, here’s how to do it right.
If you have the pocket money and the time, rent yourself a car and tent, or better yet a campervan, and drive the magical Wild Atlantic Way.

Load your bikes onto the back, the boards on top. Sail, surf and scramble your way along the coast. Have picnics by day and pub grub and pints by night.
Here’s a list of the very best places to stop along the route… winding roads, traffic-jams behind sheep and tractors, rolling moors and lashing rain… this will be one hell of a trip!
