ARTS, CULTURE & HERITAGE

FIND YOUR IDEAL CULTURAL HOLIDAY, ARTISTIC GETAWAY OR HERITAGE BREAK ALONG 2,500KM OF COAST.

Home to acclaimed arts and cultural tastemakers, craftspeople and a deep-rooted artistic heritage, the Wild Atlantic Way’s living landscape is also what inspires talented people like artists Charles Tyrell and Dorothy Cross, and food and fashion entrepreneurs Aoibheann MacNamara and Triona Lillis, to create and innovate.

Across six distinctive regions you’ll find modern takes on traditional crafts like tweed weaving, pottery throwing and furniture design; visit the workshops and galleries of artists at the forefront of fine art, felt-making and printing, or see for yourself how traditional Irish instruments are made, tracing their cultural significance and the Irish language’s evolution at any number of heritage centres.

From our Celtic past to classic literature, early technology to industry and the eras of Irish life that happened in between, there’s a museum, monument or visitor attraction to it all on this coastal route.
