All along this seaboard you’ll find coastal communities whose boats have bobbed on the ocean for centuries, who catch and produce seafood with true passion and dedication, and whose chefs know just how to deliciously dish it up. Prepare to taste the best seafood on the planet.

Seafood to Savour
Seafood is where the Wild Atlantic Way meets Ireland’s unique culture. It’s about lobster and crab, salmon and mackerel, oysters and mussels plucked fresh from the purest waters. But it’s also about the men and women who mix tradition with 21st century techniques to bring it from tide to table, to serve it just a few miles (or in some cases, just a few feet) from where it's been caught.
Whether it's a steaming bowl of chowder on a wind-whipped winter day or a Guinness and oysters treat on a sun-lit summer terrace, this is one coast that never fails to tantalise tastebuds.
See the ocean. Meet the people. Feel the welcome. A taste of the Atlantic beckons, so bring an appetite… and your sense of adventure!
