Donegal's Wild Atlantic Way

Your adventure starts here!

Donegal's Wild Atlantic Way is a 500km driving route that takes you though some of Ireland's most beautiful and unspoilt landscapes.

The Wild Atlantic Way on Ireland’s west coast leads you through one of the world’s most dramatic coastal landscapes, a landscape on the edge of Europe that has shaped the development of its people, communities and settlements, a landscape that has inspired its own particular language, literature, art, song and dance. It’s a place of many natural features - seascapes, sea-life, cliffs, mountains, glens, loughs, trails and pathways. It’s a place to experience nature at its wildest, a place to explore the history of the Gaels and their religion; a place to experience great events, great food and drink, great music and the craic. Experience Irish Culture at its best and take time to share a story or two with the locals while you are at it.

These distinct viewing points, large and small, identifiable by WAW signs, were selected for their potential to offer visitors an authentic and intimate experience of the natural and wild landscape and seascape. Alongside the Discovery Points, Donegal is also home to three Signature Discovery Points, considered iconic, must-see sights on the Wild Atlantic Way, these are: Malin Head, Fanad Head and Sliabh Liag.
