The road dips, weaves,
rises, zigzags and
Over a week, I cover around 900km,
dipping in and out of towns, winding
from County Kerry to County Cork,
sipping Guinness and feasting on
black pudding, local mussels and fresh
fish, and savouring encounters with
locals wherever I stop.
My chosen section of the Wild
Atlantic Way takes me along the Ring
of Kerry, and around the dramatic and
remote Beara Peninsula, to the rocky
finger of land called Sheep’s Head – a
2km hike from the end of the road –
and to Mizen Head, Ireland’s southern-
most point of land, before trailing
along the south coast to Kinsale and
turning north again to Cork.
As the road dips, weaves, rises,
zig-zags, and narrows along the wild
and rugged coastline, it’s not the
landmarks or the towns that stay
etched in my mind. It’s the craggy
hills, crashing seas, wandering sheep
and warm hospitality.
Unforgettable? Undoubtedly. What
will I remember most? A conversation
with Jim, the landowner at Sheep’s
Head, who’s walking his dog near
the lighthouse; the blue lines of
mussel farms gleaming in Kenmare
Bay; the colourfully painted houses
of the former copper mining town
of Allihies, vivid splashes against the
grim grey mountains behind them;
standing in the wind on the highest
cliffs in Kerry, the ocean hurling itself
against them far below; the green...
oh, the green...of the fields and the
vivid blue of the sea.
It’s impossible to drive this coastline
without being moved. The sheer
natural beauty, the assault on the
senses from sea and land and sky, the
sense of an ancient land, the music,
and warmth of the people, conspire to
almost overwhelm me at times.
If you do this drive, do it slowly.
Savour every kilometre of it. It’s wild
and it’s wonderful. •
