Wild Atlantic Way – go west and go wild

Last week we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day here in Ireland. It tends to mark the beginning of the official tourism season of the year. One of this year’s new initiatives from Failte Ireland (our national tourist board) is the recently launched Wild Atlantic Way. You can enjoy some of the visual highlights in the video link at the end of this post.

Irish Landmark Trust is fortunate to have rescued and restored properties by the sea from north to south and east to west. The Wild Atlantic Way coastal drive highlights Ireland’s Atlantic coast from counties Donegal to Cork. If it is a trip that appeals to you, there are some suggested itineraries available here.

It could work well to avail of some of our properties in these counties. Our Donegal property Termon House, our Sligo property the Schoolhouse at Annaghmore, our Clare property Loop Head Lightkeeper’s House and our Cork properties Galley Head Lightkeepers’ house 1 and Galley Head Lightkeeper’s house 2 are all on or close to the Wild Atlantic Way route.  You could start or end your trip in one of these locations or use it as a base.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to make a booking.
