Wild Atlantic Way
The Wild Atlantic Way is a major new tourism initiative for the western seaboard. This long distance touring route stretches from the very north of Donegal to West Cork – a total length of 2,500km – and showcases Ireland’s magnificent Atlantic coastline.
The Wild Atlantic Way on Ireland’s west coast leads you through one of the world’s most dramatic coastal landscapes, a landscape on the edge of Europe that has shaped the development of its people, communities and settlements, a landscape that has inspired its own particular language, literature, art, song and dance.
It’s a place of many natural features – seascapes, sea-life, cliffs, mountains, glens, loughs, trails and pathways. It’s a place to experience nature at its wildest, a place to explore the history of the Gaels and their religion; a place to experience great events, great food and drink, great music and the craic.
