The West of Ireland
Woodstock Hotel, Ennis – Ideal Wild Atlantic Way Location
Stretching from Donegal’s Malin Head in the North to Cork’s Mizen Head in the South, Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way is the longest defined coastal drive in the world. Wild and untamed, free and unbridled this breath-taking route has some of the most dramatic coastal views in the world. Broken into five main regions and with 14 route sections, you have the choice to discover parts or all of the Wild Atlantic Way.
Two of the five Wild Atlantic Way sections start or end in Clare: Mayo to Clare & Clare to Kerry. With world-famous sights nearby such as the Cliffs Of Moher, Lahinch & Spanish point, Hotel Woodstock is the ideal place to stay. Take a trip back to Loop Head Lighthouse or Kilbaha and take in the wonderful scenery on the drive there. Head West during your Staycation and you and the family can enjoy the following:
Make a splash for it at Kilrush Aqua Park!
