I have an absolutely shocking taste in music.

I mean, I love the stuff that I listen to, anytimetime I pop on a playlist with friends in the car, I get absolutely slated.

Inspired by this, and probably more so by the fact that I’m heading west for a road trip this weekend and don’t fancy getting lynched, I asked the 137,000+ strong Irish Road Trip community for help.

As you can see, they were pretty vocal!

Around 750 comments and DMs had my phone hopping for the evening, but the result was a delightfully mixed bag of road trip bangers.

So, thanks to all of you who contributed (damn you to the dude who recommended Mark McCabe Maniac – stuck in my head going on 15 hours now), the Spotify playlist below was born.

(You can get to it on Spotify right here)


It’s packed with a mix of tunes, many of which you can cruise along those never-ending dual carriageways to, but just as many that you can chill to, as you meander around those narrow country lanes.

And that's a wrap!
As always, I’d love to hear what you think in the comments below. Let me know if we’ve missed anything that’d be a great addition!
