The Summer is fast approaching and if you’re starting to plan a staycation Failte Ireland has just launched the “Wild Atlantic Way” and It promises to become one of the greatest road trips on the planet!
The 2,500km coastal route stretching from the Inishowen peninsula (specifically the Donegal village of Muff) to Kinsale, Co Cork — is expected to become one of the country’s main tourist attractions this year. The route’s project director, Fiona Monaghan, said Fáilte Ireland hoped that it would become one of the world’s great tourism routes like the Great Ocean Road in Australia, and the Pacific Coast Highway in the US.
The Wild Atlantic Way will promote 15 prime discovery points along the drive encompassing iconic landmarks such as: the Cliffs of Moher, in Co Clare; Skellig Michael, off the coast of Co Kerry; Mizen Head, Co Cork, the most southerly point in Ireland; and Sliabh Liag in Co Donegal, the highest sea cliffs.
