The Northern Headlands Region of the Wild Atlantic Way is an unmissable destination, whether you’re finishing your journey or only now beginning...
Spanning roughly 2,500km of untouched coastal roadway, Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way scenic tour is truly a once in a lifetime experience. And the Northern Headlands region across Donegal is perhaps the most breath-taking and exhilarating of them all.
From the astonishing marine cliffs at Sliabh League—tumbling down into the surf at a staggering 600m height—to the Wild Atlantic Way’s (and indeed Ireland’s) most northern point at Malin Head—with its stark Napoleonic Martello Tower and incredible cliff walks—Donegal is an unmissable keystone destination on The Wild Atlantic Way. Whether you’re only travelling a portion of the route or braving the entire adventure!
Inishowen is the perfect embodiment of the Wild Atlantic Way
Home to Ireland’s most northern headlands (including Malin Head), the uniquely idyllic peninsula of Inishowen in Donegal is the perfect representation of what the Wild Atlantic Way stands for. Whether it’s the rugged and remote heather-coated cliffs that meet the Atlantic surf in an ancient dance along the coast—or the majestic hills and mountains that tower like kings and queens of old over the golden sandy beaches below—Inishowen perfectly embodies the Celtic spirit and energy of the Wild Atlantic Way.
So whether you’re coming to the end of your adventure or you’re only now beginning it, if you truly want to experience the wind-swept majesty of Ireland and the Atlantic Way, then Donegal and Inishowen are an absolute must!
