Wild Atlantic Way

Take it all in this Summer with Só Hotels

Explore all the Wild Atlantic Way has to offer and stay in our conveniently located hotels along the way. Enjoy four-star comfort, complimentary Leisure Club access and luxury during your getaway to the west and delicious, award-winning food to fuel your adventures.

Day 1 - Doolin, Aran Islands

1 hr 15 minutes from Castletroy Park Hotel


Start your Wild Atlantic Way adventures right with an unforgettable trip to the Aran Islands. A visit to these unique islands is a must while you are on holidays on the west coast so book a ferry from Doolin in north county Clare. From there, choose to explore Inis Mór, Inis Meáin or Inis Oirr. Inis Mór is the largest of the three, famous for its stunning scenery and Stone Age forts such as Dun Aengus and the Black Fort. Inis Meáin is the middle island and the least visited of the three. However, don’t let that put you off! Visitors of this island can expect the same natural rugged beauty but with quiet, unspoiled tranquillity. Inis Oirr is the smallest of the three Aran Islands and the location for that iconic aerial shot of ‘Craggy Island’ from Fr. Ted. It’s also home to the Plassey Shipwreck and some beautiful beaches. Whichever you choose, you’re guaranteed an unforgettable day trip, perfect for families! Hire a bike and journey around the islands or take a pony and trap tour with a local. When you land back to shore at Doolin, comfort and luxury await in the four-star Castletroy Park Hotel just over an hour away. Check in and relax with a delicious meal in the Brasserie or McLaughlin’s Restaurant or unwind in the Leisure Club, included complimentary as our guest.

Day 2 - Bunratty Castle & Folk Park, King John's Castle & Hunt Museum

20 minutes from Castletroy Park Hotel


Bunratty Castle is one of Ireland’s most visited castles and it’s easy to see why. It is a 15th century castle, built around 1425 but the site has been of historical importance since around 1250. Take a tour of the castle to learn more about the lengthy history of the area and the families that lived there. The Folk Park is a wonderful attraction for families. Stroll the Village Street, designed to represent a real 19th century Irish village. Say hello to the resident Irish Wolfhounds and explore the Fairy Trail. There’s an exciting Viking Playground for the little ones to explore too! Just a few miles down the road in the heart of Limerick City, another amazing castle is ready to be discovered. King John’s Castle overlooks the River Shannon and offers an interactive visitor experience for young and old alike. Learn about the history of the riverside city and take in some amazing views from the top. Play medieval courtyard games and even abseil down the castle walls, if you have a head for heights!

Day 3 - Foynes Flying Boat Museum & Limerick Greenway

40 minutes from Castletroy Park Hotel



After a delicious breakfast and a restful night’s sleep, venture out to Foynes, just 40 minutes from the hotel and discover the Flying Boat Museum. Dating back to the 1930’s, the small village of Foynes played an important role in the development of international aviation travel. At the museum, you can step inside a replica Boeing B314 to see what life on board was like for the passengers during their transatlantic flights to and from New York. The legendary Maureen O’Hara was one such passenger, whose husband, famed aviator Charles Blair, flew flying boats into Foynes between 1942 and 1945. She opened the museum in 1989 and was its patron until her death in 2015. There is an exhibition at the museum in her honour featuring her Oscar award along with many other personal items and memorabilia. Foynes is also where Irish Coffee was first invented and you can learn how to make it the traditional way here during your visit. On the return journey to Limerick, we highly recommend visiting the new Limerick Greenway to explore some of the beautiful scenery of Limerick. You can hire a bike in nearby Newcastlewest and take the route to the historic village of Ardagh and on to the finishing point at Rathkeale. Along the way you will see some of Limerick’s most beautiful countryside along the River Deel. When you return to the hotel again, unwind with a soak in the Jacuzzi in our Leisure Club and settle in for a delicious meal in our Brasserie.
