The Wild Atlantic Way is Ireland’s 2,500 kilometre driving route stretching around the beautiful and rugged western coast from Cork to Donegal. Launched by Fáilte Ireland in 2014, it is the longest coastal driving route in the world. With the constant presence of the blue Atlantic Ocean on one side, visitors will encounter well-known attractions such as the Ring of Kerry, the Cliffs of Moher, and Connemara, but will also explore many of the lesser known locations that make the Wild Atlantic Way so special.

With his Harley-Davidson motorcycle and a map, author Eugene O’Loughlin set out on a trip of discovery from Kinsale in West Cork to Inishowen in Donegal. Along the way he explored beautiful and remote locations with wonderful names like Toe Head, the Bridges of Ross, Sheep’s Head, Flaggy Shore, and Horn Head. He discovered locations associated with the legends of the Children of Lir, the Black Pig of Muckdubh, and Fionn Mac Cumhaill, and visited some of the most iconic lighthouses in Ireland at Mizen Head, Loop Head and Fanad Head.
