Explore Ireland's Literary Heritage - Experiences to Savor on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way
Here is just one of the experiences to savor on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way:
Remember Ireland's greatest born storytellers: Out on the very edge of Europe, as far west as you can go in Ireland, lies a deserted village on an archipelago. These are the mystical Blasket Islands - famous in Ireland for their Gaelic storytellers, and deeply symbolic of the Irish story of emigration. Halfway round the Slea Head Drive - a scenic route circling the edge of the Dingle Peninsula - is the Blasket Center. Its director, Irish speaking Micheal de Modha, provides moving insights into the islanders' hard lives, the sorrows of emigration and the literary heritage of the Blaskets. A long glass fronted gallery overlooks the Atlantic and the Great Blasket itself: a constant reminder of that poignant place.
