The Bay Coast of the Wild Atlantic Way is comprised of both County Mayo and County Galway. From Achill Island to Killary Fjord, from open Ocean vistas to the Connemara mountains. With little Bays and Islands, all the way to the charming city of Galway. It is a wealth of experiences for any tourist. You could spend weeks here and have a different experience each day. I'll just hit on some of my personal favorites. I have visited this part of Ireland before so it's a bit of a cheat on this trip as you couldn't cover it all in the short time I had to spend here.
My favorites include:
Travel and Packing Tip: One of the best suggestions I can recommend for traveling to Ireland, no matter what the season, be prepared for a bit of rain! This journey started out with great weather, but once the rain came in it stayed for a couple of days. It is as I said very atmospheric and beautiful but it's no fun getting wet. You will need a good jacket that can withstand driving rain and not soak through at all. We've got the perfect one for women..it's our Ilse Jacobsen Raincoats and they are the very best thing for this type of weather. Great fit and very flattering as well. I live in mine year round (I have two!) I also have their rainboots along for this trip and I love them! They are lace up so they fit well in the calf (good for hiking), soft felt lining and nothing gets through them! So keep those feet dry and your clothes under the jacket dry too. You will be a much happier camper (traveler!)
