Safest Route & Timing for Transatlantic Crossing?

Question: What is the safest route for a transatlantic crossing from America to Europe (on a 50 ft. Catamaran), and what week/month would be safest to take that route?

Ideally we'd like to make initial landfall in Ireland, but if heading that far north during the crossing adds significantly to the dangers of it, then we're certainly open to a more southerly destination. As for time of year, we're in no hurry. any ideas?

Thanks!
