What to eatGalway oysters, cockles and mussels, Durrus cheese, and smoked salmon. Read all our Irish food favourites here!
What to bring backConnemara marble jewellery or figurines, soaps and perfumes from The Burren Perfumery, traditional handmade pottery and a Wild Atlantic Way passport (available at any post office or tourist office along the way).
Fun FactThe Wild Atlantic Way’s beauty is otherworldly, perhaps even…intergalactic? The latest Star Wars films were shot at locations across the coast: the Skellig Islands, the Dingle peninsula, the cliffs of Loop Head, and many more space travel must-sees. In 2019, they celebrated this cosmic connection with the first ever May the Fourth Festival (on May 4, of course)!
