Where to eat and stay on the Wild Atlantic Way

If the idea of a culinary road trip has your mouth watering, travelling the 2,500km along the Wild Atlantic Way from Donegal to West Cork in the company of John and Sally McKenna’s pocket-size guide, will be a taste of paradise!

Featuring 350 entries starting with the Pyke ‘n’ Pommes food cart, in the shadow of the Foyle Bridge, and finishing with the ‘piscine brilliance’ of Martin Shanahan’s cooking in Fishy Fishy, Kinsale, ‘The Wild Atlantic Way is not just a travel adventure, it’s a culinary adventure as well,’ writes John McKenna.

Where to Eat and Stay on the Wild Atlantic Way is the first food and accommodation guide to be published on the WAW, the longest themed route on Earth - according to Failte Ireland, which hugs the coast through counties, Donegal, Leitrim, Sligo, Mayo, Galway, Clare, Kerry and West Cork.

Along the journey, John and Sally McKenna have used their 25 years of experience in writing about Irish food and hospitality, to discover the best places to eat and stay. The guide also features places to snack, and showcases the best craft beers, as well as local speciality foods and fine-dining restaurants.

‘We looked for good, for simple road food, great shops, authentic B&Bs and places that offer a genuine Irish welcome,’ writes Sally McKenna. With more than 300 photographs, every page turn is a new discovery of the sights and tastes that showcase the natural beauty of this Atlantic rim.

Whatever your reason for touring the Wild Atlantic Way ― be it to surf, swim, walk, cycle or just soak up the unspoilt miles of white, squeaky sand ― this guide should be your constant companion to ensure your day ends with mouthfuls of the delicious tastes of Ireland.
