Along the Wild Atlantic Way there are plenty of interesting historic sights to discover, such as Dungaire Castle near Kinvarra. Starting from Galway, the first leg takes you south through County Clare to the picturesque village of Ballyvaughan. The following day you are cycling into the unique karst (limestone) landscape of the Burren to Doolin, renowned for traditional Irish music, for a two night stopover. The loop route from here takes you around the Burren coastline and more importantly to the Cliffs of Moher. You then catch the ferry over to Inishmore, largest of the three Aran Islands for a night. You depart the island by another ferry which lands you at Rossaveal on the shores of Galway Bay, from where you ride west through Connemara to Clifden, often labelled the capital of Connemara, for your last 2 nights.
