New Tourism Ireland videos highlight the Wild Atlantic Way

~ Nine counties, six stunning regions and one incredible stretch of coastline … Tourism Ireland new suite of videos showcases the star attractions along the Wild Atlantic Way ~

Tourism Ireland has created a new suite of online films to highlight some of the many attractions and stunning scenery our international visitors can enjoy along the Wild Atlantic Way. 

In the suite of films, Tourism Ireland has created one main video that showcases the entire length of the Wild Atlantic Way, as well as six individual videos that highlight each region from Donegal to West Cork – so that prospective visitors can start to pinpoint their ‘must see’ attractions for their holiday here. The aim of this suite of videos is to help inform prospective visitors about what they can experience, wherever they decide to stay.
