travelling and exploring the Wild Atlantic Way is still mostly on hold; but we have some ideas for you.

Government measures are in place and advice on easing of COVID-19 restrictions is being updated regularly — make sure that you stay in the loop.

For now, a visit in person is not possible for all of us; but you don't have to miss out on the enjoyment of the west of Ireland, no matter where you are in the world.

Experience the Wild Atlantic Way in 360°

Exploring the Wild Atlantic Way from the comfort of your own home is possible, thanks to our 360-degree videos. With videos from most of the region, you can go horse riding along gorgeous Streedagh Beach in County Sligo; climb sea stacks in County Donegal; go mountain biking in the Burren or take a dip in the invigorating Atlantic itself with tow-in surfing next to the Cliffs of Moher — all without leaving your living room! 

Discover its beauty as you turn your stay indoors into a staycation and #roamfromhome, treating yourself to a fresh perspective.

Binge-watch Films from the Wild Atlantic Way

From Hollywood blockbusters to captivating screen romances, and — most recently — an incredible journey to a galaxy far, far away, the spectacular scenery of the Wild Atlantic Way has provided the backdrop for some of cinema’s most enduring moments.

Time to grab some popcorn, get comfy and discover eight films (of many) which were filmed along the Wild Atlantic Way. Ready? Action!

Be inspired by the movie locations, including the stunning Skelligs where Star Wars filmed, and start planning a trip to see them in person when the travel restrictions are lifted. 

Delve into Digital Exhibitions

If you are a fan of art, going to a gallery right now is unfortunately not an option. So why not bring the gallery to you instead and get your art fix by checking out the online programmes being run by The Model in Sligo.
