The Wild Atlantic Way is a tourism trail on the West Coast of Ireland. The stunning 2,500km of coastline offers breathtaking scenery, invigorating sea swells, gastronomic gems and a warm welcoming atmosphere. The WAW is a haven for traditional Irish musicians. Sessions are informal and often impromptu, making the Wild Atlantic Way a little piece of music heaven
All our tour groups are accompanied by professional Irish musicians. The highlight is the daily ‘mini concert’ dedicated to the group. These sessions will feature local musicians who will share music and stories in an informal and intimate environment.
