The North Ireland and Irish segments of EuroVelo 1 – Atlantic Coast Route follow a primarily coastal route of trails and roads, much of which is aligned with or to the popular Wild Atlantic Way (WAW) touring route. As such, EuroVelo 1 passes through or close to all Irish cities outside of Dublin: Galway, Limerick and Cork, as well as regional centres such as Letterkenny, Sligo, Tralee, etc. These cities, and many of the centres, are transport hubs with bus, train, taxi, and in some cases air transport available. In addition, large sections of the route are also served by scheduled public as well as private bus services, thereby providing visitors with accessible transport options.
