- The Wild Atlantic Way is set to be Ireland’s first long distance tourist route, which will stretch for about 2,000 km from Donegal to West Cork. It will follow the coastline and will showcase the best views and experiences that Ireland’s extensive Atlantic coast has to offer.
- The scenery is stunning, the opportunities are limitless. The views are sensational no matter what time of the year you visit, and the route offers many different appearances from one season to the next as the landscape transforms from winter to spring, from spring to lush summer, and from summer to golden autumn.
- When completed in 2014 the Wild Atlantic Way will rival or exceed the appeal of legendary driving routes such as South Africa’s Garden route, California’s Pacific Coast Highway, Australia’s Great Ocean Road, or the Cabot Trail which so magnificently explores Canada’s Atlantic provinces.
- To see how the development of this great “new” attraction is coming along, ITIC spoke with Project Director Paddy Mathews of Fáilte Ireland.
