You can get a train to Sligo, and get from there to Galway in about 4 or 5 days depending on how much you do per day. My wife is from Mayo so my mate and I done Sligo to Ballina on day 1 with a short stop at the beach bar and a pint in enniscrone and the night in her parents house, Ballina to Achill Island on day 2, Achill to Clifden eco beach campsite day 3, and Clifden to Galway for a burrito and train back to Dublin on day 4. I spend a lot of time there so we didn't really hang about. If you've more time some of the coastline is amazing. Downpatrick head is worth a visit. The seaweed baths in enniscrone are ace too.
I've ridden a bit in Donegal and it's stunning, but not the WAW roads.
Best thing is that it's all signposted.
Not ridden much in the south west of the country but believe its lovely.
EDIT: just realised the first map in this thread is exactly the route a mate and i done a few years ago.
