The Wild Atlantic Way, for those who are unaware, is a 2,500km route along Ireland’s west cost, starting in Donegal and finishing in Cork. The route hugs the coastline, and visits some of the most scenic and beautiful areas in Ireland.
The natural and raw beauty of the Wild Atlantic Way makes for excellent video footage. Drones provide spectacular footage of the raw natural beauty, but more than this, these videos will explain why the Wild Atlantic Way is such a massive attraction. It is the people, and the experiences combined with beautiful scenery that makes the Wild Atlantic Way what it is.

This video is very different. Firstly it provides a historical context to many areas along the Wild Atlantic Way. This video moves along very quickly, but it is well worth a watch. While it doesn’t have drone footage, the historical perspective is very interesting.
