Out of this world at the edge of the world

From epic sunsets to crashing waves, misty mountain passes and ancient stone fortresses, there is something otherworldly about the Wild Atlantic Way. As the force of the Atlantic battles against the jagged defenses of the western seaboard, the people, the adventures and the landscapes combine to offer an experience that’s truly out of this world. It’s a place like nowhere else. It’s an escape and a chance to be there. Really there.

The diversity and uniqueness of the route has not gone unnoticed with its unearthly chasms and cathedral-shaped islands setting the scene for one of the most iconic and much-loved film universes — Star Wars.

Explore craggy cliffs and far-flung islands and walk in the footsteps of kings, filmmakers and seafarers, Jedi and holy men with a visit to some of these dramatic filming locations.

However, not all otherworldly experiences are confined to land and sea. Along the clear, unpolluted skies of the Wild Atlantic Way, under bright twinkling stars, fortunate sky scanners can sometimes spot Aurora Borealis, also known as Northern Lights.

And, under those beautiful skies, within all those far away galaxies, it’s easy to imagine if there is life out there, they must be aware of the charms of the Wild Atlantic Way too.
