Sarah’s Adventure Along the Wild Atlantic Way

Irish Road Trip by Sarah Errafay @TravelsofSarahFay

As a family-owned campervan company in Dublin, we were delighted when Sarah reached out to us to use one of our campervans on her Wild Atlantic Way Adventure. Sarah was here with her mom from the USA and had spent an amazing week touring Northern Ireland before coming to Dublin. She even participated in the St Patrick’s Day parade!

Sarah was looking for a small van that would be easy to drive but comfortable for travel with her mom. The VW Beach model was perfect for what she was looking for. This campervan rental option is perfect for an Irish Road Trip as it is smaller than a standard campervan, making it easier to navigate the small Irish roads.  One thing about all our campervans is that they are automatic, this is one thing that our American visitors love about Cookies Campers.

Donegal & Sligo

Sarah’s trip started off in Donegal, starting off in Malin Head, the most Northern part of Ireland. After this, she visited  Glenveagh National Park. This is an absolute favourite of the Cookies Campers team, so we highly recommend it.

Next stop was the Slieve League cliffs and as Sarah rightly points out, these are on a par with the Cliffs of Moher but less well know. You can stay the night at the recently opened Sliabh Liag Camping .

Sligo was next on the agenda with visits to Sligo Town, Enniscrone Beach and the Benbulben Mountain outside sligo Town. This flat topped mountian provides breathtaking views as you drive around the Sligo town area. It always reminds me of Uluru in Australia (albeit a green Uluru!).

Mayo, Galway & Clare

The distance from Malin Head to Westport is almost 300km. And while this might not sound like much to our American and Australian customers, there are so many things to do along the way. A campervan hire from Cookies Campers in Dublin really provides the best option to make the most of your Irish Roadtrip.

Westport in County Mayo is a great town to visit with lots of music and craic. We always visit Matt Molloys pub for great Guinness and music. As Sarah moved on to Galway she visited the historic Kylemore Abbey.

Finally she reached the Burren, the landscape here is very unexpected for Ireland with lots of greys and purples. It is almost a moon-like environment. Finally Sarah visited the Cliffs of Moher before it was time to return her campervan rental to Dublin.

It sounds like Sarah had a brilliant time along the Wild Atlantic Way with the only downside that she didn’t get to see more. A top tip Sarah shared on Instagram is to make sure you download Google Maps for offline usage. Get in touch with us today to start your adventure.
