Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way

Boasting ancient tombs, atmospheric castles and sacred retreats, the Wild Atlantic Way is alive with treasures to explore.

Beginning in Kinsale, Neil Jackman guides us northwards to visit his top 100 heritage sites. From 350-million-year-old footprints on Valentia Island to vestiges of the more recent past like the cottage of 1916 revolutionary Patrick Pearse, you will discover the stories behind the dramatic scenery.

Here is everything you need to know about the history of iconic landscapes like the Cliffs of Moher and the Ring of Kerry, as well as lesser-known delights like the monastic site at Reask in County Kerry and the Doonfeeny Standing Stone in County Mayo. For those who want to get off the beaten track, there are trips to islands like Scattery, Inishmurray and, of course, the breathtaking Skellig Michael.

This engaging and practical guide is an essential companion for any explorer wishing to dig deeper and discover the gems of this spectacular landscape.
