Smile Catamaran Cruising round Ireland

Wondered if anyone has tried to get to the Mediterranean from NW Scotland by sailing West around Ireland in a small cruising cat ... preferably, without ending up in Madeira, the Canaries or the Azores en route! Could appropriate weather windows avoiding Irish lee shores be a problem?

On the other hand, it might be possible to take the scenic route, day sailing or making short overnight passages down the Coast. One might then have a choice of routes around or across the Bay of Biscay!

Interested to hear your thoughts on this possibility, especially, if you have actually sailed this route without crossing the Atlantic or even just worked your way down the West Coast of Ireland. Thanks for your input.
