Views sought on major tourism route
Fáilte Ireland is calling for local communities in Donegal to get involved in the development of a significant new tourism driving route for the west coast.
Set to be Ireland’s first long-distance route for tourists, the new Wild Atlantic way will feature a 1,400km driving route from Donegal to West Cork.
The tourism authority are holding two key meetings in Donegal on Wednesday, December 5 - at 11am in the Millpark Hotel, Donegal town and at 4pm in in the Raddison Blu hotel in Letterkenny.
Over the course of the past months, Fáilte Ireland, with the aid of local authorities, has examined a range of route options for the Wild Atlantic Way and is now seeking the views of tourism businesses and communities on a preferred route which has been identified.
Funding of €1.8 million was announced earlier this year for a pilot stage of the Wild Atlantic Way project in Connemara which is now under way.
