Explore Ireland's Literary Heritage - Experiences to Savor on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way

Out at the very edged of Europe, the Wild Atlantic Way stretched 1500 miles alond Ireland's western seaboard. From Malin Head in Co Donegal to Kinsale in Co Cork, through regions like Connemara, Galway Bay and Kerry, it's the longest defined coastal drive in the world!

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.
