The Wild Atlantic Way
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.
The Wild Atlantic Way gives visitors the opportunity for:
- Seeing and exploring the wild landscape and seascape
- Exploring the settlements along the way
- Experiencing and participating in events
- Exploring the culture of the people
- Driving the roads on the edge of the wild seascapes
