The Wild Atlantic Way is the longest defined coastal drive in the world, and for those of you looking to experience the natural beauty of Ireland, and the breathtaking scenery of the coastline, this is a journey for you.
Clifden on the Wild Atlantic Way
Clifden is a coastal town located in Galway’s picturesque Connemara area. Nestled between the 12 Ben Mountains, the Atlantic Ocean and bog land area, Clifden is one of Ireland’s most popular towns and has many shops, bars, cafes, restaurants, and with the Alcock and Brown Hotel at the centre of Clifden, our cosy hotel makes a great stop off point as you hit the halfway point for your trip. For those of you who like a little bit of history, Clifden is home to the scattered remnants of the world’s first trans-Atlantic radio station, as well as a wing-shaped memorial to commemorate the first non-stop flight across the Atlantic, which crashed in Clifden. Alcock and Brown who were the pilots, thankfully weren’t injured in the crash. It is these brave pilots that our lovely Alcock and Brown hotel are named after.
