All of Kerry’s spectacular Coastline is on The Wild Atlantic Way. The rugged coast stretches from Kenmare in the South to The Shannon Estuary in the north.
What is The Wild Atlantic Way?
It is a tourism route on the west coast of Ireland extending from Malin Head in County Donegal to Kinsale in County Cork. The route is well signposted and there are 157 discovery points, over 1000 attractions and numerous activities. It is well documented and visitors to the west of Ireland will be spoilt for choice of where to visit.
The Wild Atlantic Way project launched in 2014 and significant investment has been effected to develop the route with maps, signposts and markings and it has been promoted vigorously both at home and abroad trough online and print media and television. The results of this have been seen in increased visitor numbers over the past few years.
Visitors to the west of Ireland will now be very familiar with the logo and the signage.
