The Wild Atlantic Way


Tour Highlights:
The Dingle Peninsula with its rugged Atlantic coastline and is scattered with forts, dry stone walls, and pre-historic huts such as the Gallarus Oratory. Irish heritage is maintained in this Irish (Gaelic) speaking region including traditional music. Dingle is famous for its spectacular scenery, the peninsula also supports both a rare and unique assortment of flora and fauna. Slea Head is the most westerly point in Europe, looking towards America. There are splendid views around Slea Head, especially of the Blasket Islands and the scattered rocks.

The Great Blasket island, was evacuated in the 1950's, and produced a number of books in Irish - a best-seller, translated as 20 Years A Growing by Maurice O' Sullivan, and a masterpiece, The Island man by Thomas O'Crohan. In this century some 60 books, mostly in Irish, have been written in the immediate area.

The Dingle countryside is also famous for the making of film Ryan's Daughter. The film Far and Away was also made here.
