THE WILD ATLANTIC WAY stretches 2500km along the west coast of Ireland, which makes it the world’s longest defined coastal route. It passes through hamlets, villages, cities, and towns all brimming with Irish culture, history, and deep Irish roots. There are historic, prehistoric, Megalithic and Neolithic landmarks in every direction; just when you’re done with one, there’s another a stone’s throw away.
Lush parks, soaring cliffs, lakes, storms, islands, music, food, beaches, inlets, mountains, farms, sunsets, fantastic locals and more all await those who visit the WAW, whether just a portion or the entire thing. As a photographer I was really excited to get to see some rural, and wild, parts of the emerald isle. I only saw but a fraction of the Wild Atlantic Way but I loved every second of it. Here are some of my favorite images from my journey.
