Sorry to pull it back.
I've booked my ferries out via Dublin on the 5th may, back via Belfast on the 16th.
Only problem now is working out how much of the waw we can cover in between. We're looking at either the whole route or just the northern half from Galway.
Any thoughts appreciated.

Did a full lap tour of the bonny green isle two summers ago and can honestly say it was one of the best I've been on. Sailed into Larne rode up to Mallin Head, toured down the WAW to Achill Island, carried on down the WAW to Tralee, took in the ring of Kerry,cut across to Cork, Dungarvan and Tramore. Travelled back up the east coast to Larne via Skerries and Newcastle.

2000 miles in a week but didn't really feel that far to be honest because its not all motorway miles and the scenery carries you along. Stayed in guest houses and hostels all at very reasonable rates, people are great and the Craic even better. Get over there you won't be disappointed.

Enjoy your bike, even if it's a 20 year old Honda cub or the latest track tool, it's still a bike. Too many bike snobs out there for my liking.

Thanks for the reply grandad,

Sounds like we'll have a good time. Are there any particular stop-offs you'd recommend?
Planning on doing the 'game of thrones' tour in the north as well as the usual tourist traps.
My biggest worry was I've read a number of blogs that suggest the main waw route can get a bit congested and be slow going. I'm guessing with that kind of mileage that you didn't find that was the case?

Cheers,

Edd

Only congested bit will be the Ring of Kerry. Can't remember if it's best to traverse clockwise or counter.  If in Belfast might I suggest the Titanic exhibition. Also drop by Ballymoney for a drink in the Railway Inn - Joey 's bar.

I know that this is a very old topic :)
I just don't want to open new one.

I need an advice from those who did the Wild Atlantic Route.
I'll have 6 days (ferry to ferry) + 2 to "commute" from/to London.
It is not much, but that is what I have.
What route would you suggest for 6 days?

Personally I'd do it all. Only question them is which way - North to south or visa versa
