Wild Atlantic Way
The route is along the Atlantic coast of Ireland from Donegal to Cork. Its Ireland’s west coast that leads you through one of the world’s most dramatic coastal landscapes, 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.
