Cannonball, the action-packed supercar spectacle is coming back to Mayo with the all new 4x4 event which will be based at Knockranny House Hotel, Westport on November 18th and 19th, arriving at approximately 5.30pm on both evenings.
The Cannonball Overland 4X4 Adventure has a beefy line up of luxurious and offload ready 4x4’s from the opulent Bentley Bentayga to the ultimate 4x4 Ford Raptor. Among those that took part last year was the Range Rover SVR, a collection of Land Rover Defender110’s, Audi Q8, Audi SQ7, Range Rover Sport, Jeep Wrangler, Porsche Cayenne and many more with some exciting new additions to this year’s event.
From cosy pubs with roaring fires and awe-inspiring coastal drives to world famous cuisine with a few surprises along the way, The Cannonball 4x4 Adventure 2022 takes on the Wild Atlantic Way in all its glory with the thrill of rugged landscapes, breath-taking sunsets and crisp sea air.
The road trip sets off at 10am from Salthill in Co Galway on November 18th with lunch in Clifden and then to Knockranny House Hotel which will be home to the Cannonball 4x4 Adventure for 2 nights. From here, the Cannonballers will explore the famous Wild Atlantic Way, Kylemore Abbey Sky Road, The Spanish Armada viewing point, Achill Island and the world famous Atlantic Drive which is named among the top ten road trips in Europe by luxury travel magazine Condé Nast Traveller. Cannonballers can also experience the lifestyle of the country set with archery, falconry or just cosy up in front of a roaring fire for a good old trad session with friends.
In true Cannonball style, this road-trip goes the extra mile with wonders at every turn including a bagpiper on a bridge, a falconer at breakfast and that rare ‘camaraderie’ that makes all Cannonball road-trips truly unforgettable experiences. The cost of the Cannonball 4x4 Adventure is €1,650 for two people sharing and one car. This includes lunch and evening meals, one 4x4 car entry, photography and crew, 2 nights’ accommodation in the luxurious Knockranny Hotel, Car graphcs and information pack with lanyards.

This year all Cannonball events are raising funds for The HOPE Foundation, an Irish Charity also with a base in the UK doing incredible work with the street children of Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) in India.
