Malin Head, the most northerly point of the Ireland, marks the beginning of the Wild Atlantic Way. Here in the northwest region of the country it is extremely dark, unpolluted and perfect for star gazing. Officially launched in 2014, the Wild Atlantic Way is a 1700 mile (2750 km) stretch of interconnected roadways that is as distinct as it is transcendental.
If you do find yourself traveling down the winding lanes of the Wild Atlantic Way do yourself a favor and turn off the GPS. The route is well marked and if you do get lost, you might get an adventure within an adventure! So dreamy!
You will marvel at the crashing waves along the jagged cliffs and the sandy beaches sprinkled with sheep. You will also enjoy a less crowded vista perfect for reflection and the peace you are looking for after a long journey.
Aurora sightings are most prevalent during the months of September/October and March/April. You can follow @Aurora_ireland on twitter for up to date Aurora alerts, sightings and browse some sweet pics taken along the Wild Atlantic Way.
I hope to see more friends traveling, for longer periods of time, meeting, greeting and embracing other ways of life.
