Cruising the Wild Atlantic Way

By Daria Blackwell and Alex Blackwell

A Word of Welcome to Europe’s Most Precious Gem
The Wild West of the Emerald Isle

An essential guide to adventure along the stunning west coast of Ireland

Whether by sea or by land, Cruising the Wild Atlantic Way provides visitors to the west of Ireland with information about what to know before they go and what they will find when they get there. It provides a logical route with suggested stops in picturesque harbours, villages, and islands along the way from Donegal to Cork. It encourages visitors to see the land as it was seen by explorers centuries ago along one of the most unspoiled stretches of coastline in Europe.

Authors Daria and Alex Blackwell share their experience from their years of cruising along the coast and islands, richly illustrating the locations with photography, charts and maps. “We have a unique perspective, having sailed here across the Atlantic then settling here to explore everything the region has to offer. We share insights into what we would have liked to have known as outsiders coming for our first visit as well as insiders who have discovered and explored the hidden gems,” explains Daria.

“I grew up in the environs of Clew Bay, so the West is embedded in my soul,” says Alex, a master mariner and lifetime sailor. “I respect the environment’s changeable and sometimes unforgiving nature, and I revere the unspoilt beauty of the land, the kindness and friendliness of the people, and the richness of the heritage. No matter how far across oceans we have sailed, we have always been drawn home to the wild west. We want to share our passion with those contemplating a visit and encourage them to unleash their adventurous spirit here.”

The experience of looking out to sea from land, in to shore from the sea, down into the ocean from above, or up to the surface from below, is unparalleled anywhere else in Europe – or anywhere else in the world for that matter. It is a small wonder that Ireland is known as the Land of the Bards and Poets. The west coast is the prime destination for hiking, biking, sailing and all manner of boating or water based activities. It has bred and nurtured poets, writers, musicians, and artists of all types. The power of the Wild Atlantic Ocean, the Majesty of the mountains that come down to the sea, the colours, the moods, they have all spawned and inspired generations of artists and writers of many nationalities. Sports enthusiasts thrive here. The fresh sea air energises their lungs, while the pristine wild coast provides challenges, excitement and above all, beauty.
