Wild Atlantic Way

Experience one of the wildest, most enchanting and cultural rich coastal touring routes in the world.  Wherever you travel along the Wild Atlantic Way you’ll find magic, adventure, history and beauty in abundance.

The Wild Atlantic Way covers 2500km of west Ireland’s coastal roads. Divided into five main sections with each one offering memories that will last a lifetime.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens introduced the world to the beauty that is Skellig Michael, this stunning island off the coast of Kerry, where the long lost Luke Skywalker was finally tracked down. Star Wars: The Last Jedi transports us back to this spectacular spot and continues the story of Rey and Luke and their epic battle against the Dark Side. 

Ballyroe Heights Hotel is located on the Clare to Kerry route (Route 4) and is a great starting or stop off point for discovering the amazing places of interest along the Way. Book our fantastic Wild Atlantic Way accommodation offer here
