The Wild Atlantic Way
by Steven Hanna
The Wild Atlantic Way – 1,600 miles of weaving coastal roads along which you can explore the rugged beauty of the west coast of Ireland. From the Inishowen Peninsula along County Donegal’s northerly tip to the beautiful southern seaside town of Kinsale in County Cork. Listen to the waves of the Atlantic Ocean crash onto the shoreline, see majestic cliffs and sandy beaches, stop off in some of the many coastal towns and villages along the way to sample some great food and enjoy a Guinness! The Wild Atlantic Way has so much to offer!
Firstly, the Cliffs of Moher – one of the top tourist locations in the whole of Ireland. These majestic and breathtaking sea cliffs are situated in County Clare. Walk along amazing cliff top paths, take in the views out to the Atlantic Ocean and if you are there in May or June you’ll get to see the puffin colony.
Malin Head – this is either the start or end of the Wild Atlantic Way, depending on which direction you intend to travel! Malin Head, in County Donegal, is the most northerly part of Ireland and is known for its unspoiled natural beauty, seascapes, variety of wildlife and more recently, its location as a film set for Star Wars.
