Irelands Wild Atlantic Way
The longest coastal touring route in the world awaits, discover for yourself the amazing signature viewing points along this scenic route. Doolin, and Seascape B&B in particular
is situated approximately half way along the route, and in a prime location for exploring some of the Wild Atlantic Way's viewing points.
The closest viewing point to Doolin is Doolin Pier. A new pier completed in mid 2015 to serve the many boats ferrying passengers between Doolin and the Aran Islands.
There are three islands in total and you have lots of options to tour them. Day trips to each island in turn is probably the best option, you could even spend longer discovering the sights and scenery.
You can get in contact with either of Doolin's ferry companies down at the pier for their time tables and tour options.
Cliffs of Moher
Ireland's most famous and main signature viewing point on the Wild Atlantic Way is the Cliffs of Moher. These majestic cliffs stand 214m (702 feet) above sea level, with views
up and down the Atlantic coastline, from Connemara and Galway to Loop Head and on to Kerry. Better still there is a Coastal Walking Trail from Doolin along the Cliffs of Moher
towards Liscannor. The 8km trail from Doolin to the cliffs visitor centre is an excellent way to discover this rugged coastline. Daily guided walks from Fisher Street in Doolin where you can
learn more about the history, folklore, flora and fauna of the area from local farmer Pat Sweeney are available. Pat will show you some of the best locations for pictures as this trail crosses
two sections of his farm and he knows the cliffs like no-one else.
Return to Doolin Pier and take a cruise along the base of the Cliffs of Moher to witness the majestic beauty of these famous cliffs as the tower above you. See the many sea birds that call
the Cliffs of Moher home.
