The 'Wild Atlantic Way' is one of those must see scenic drives - just made for photographers. It snakes down the full length of the west coast of Ireland (Eire), taking in some simply breathtaking scenery. Join me and wrap yourself in the wilderness of the west coast of Ireland as we take in part of the world's longest defined coastal touring route.
We will tour from the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare, down to the ring of Kerry and the Scotland-like landscape of the Killarney National Park, a distance of around 300 miles.
The Wild Atlantic Way is a sensational journey of soaring cliffs, hidden beaches, mountains, waterfalls, lakes and epic bays; as a photographic destination, it really does have it all.
We will also have to avail ourselves of some of that legendary Irish 'craic' - and Cheryl makes sure that we factor in some live music, Guinness and Irish stew too!

You will need to fly to Shannon airport and I will pick you up with the minibus there. There are flights to Shannon from London and Birmingham currently advertised at between £97 - 120 return. If you wish to fly from Manchester, you can, but would have a lot of waiting around for the other flights to get in.
