Minister Ring Officially Launches the Wild Atlantic Way

Ireland’s first long-distance touring route, The Wild Atlantic Way, was officially launched this morning by Minister of State for Tourism and Sport Michael Ring T.D. who promised visitors to the West of Ireland the “journey of a lifetime”. 

The Wild Atlantic Way is Ireland’s first long-distance driving route.  Stretching from the Inishowen Peninsula in Donegal to Kinsale in County Cork, the route will offer visitors an opportunity to truly discover the West Coast.

Following a comprehensive public consultation process, the 2,500km route has been finalised and includes 159 discovery points along the way. We are investing €10 million during 2014 in the new attraction which is already garnering significant interest overseas. 

ENDS
