Wild Atlantic Way
“Ireland’s only fjord is stunningly beautiful and it’s even more dramatic underwater. Saucer-sized scallops dance away in defense as giant starfish edge too close. Massive conger eels lurk under rocky ledges and the wealth of not too distant dive sites off the ancient offshore islands defies belief. There are spots here for divers, or wannabe divers, of all stripes.”
