Porsche Centre Dublin are delighted to be sponsoring "Into the West" 2021. This is going to be a memorable experience and a sight to remember as 100 Porsche drivers gather together this week to drive 2,400kms of the Wild Atlantic Way.
The Wild Atlantic Way has become internationally recognised for one of the greatest and most enjoyable driving challenges in Europe. In 2015, Porsche Club Ireland ran a similar road trip from North to South of the entire route from Malin to Kinsale, teaming up with Fáilte Ireland (Irish Tourism Organisation) to send 47 Porsches the length of the Wild Atlantic Way, making it the longest ever ‘run’ undertaken by the club – taking seven days to complete. It was recorded in a beautiful video piece ‘The Road at the edge of the World’ which painted a gorgeous picture of Ireland and has been viewed more than 209,000 times on YouTube.
Into the West 2021 differs slightly, as this time the route will be South to North, starting in Kinsale and spending the October Bank Holiday in Killarney. Fáilte Ireland are again involved as are Tourism Ireland. Each Day will start in rally style with a customized start/finish Arch and photo opportunities. It promises to be colourful and fun, so we invite you to keep an eye out for our lead car and all the participants as they pass through the different towns and cities on the route.
Starting at the Kinsale Hotel & Spa on Friday 22 October, the route is as follows:
The Maritime Hotel, Bantry, 23 October; Randle’s Hotel, Killarney 24 October and 25 October; The Armada, Co. Clare 26 October; Hotel Westport 27 October; the Sandhouse, Co. Donegal on the 28 October and finally An Gríanán, Co. Donegal on Friday 29 October, from where the stunning collection of vehicles will make their way to Malin and the final chequered flag. 8 days and nights after they started their journey. It promises to be quite a spectacle and we invite spectators to come along at any of these venues and if possible, greet them at their final destination.

For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
