Signs going up now with route due to open in March
The Wild Atlantic Way scenic drive is set to provide a massive boost to the local tourism industry with thousands of new visitors set to travel through Inishowen in the coming years.
At some 2,500 kilometres in length, the route, which runs from Malin Head to Mizen Head, is being billed as the world’s longest ‘driving holiday route’.
Signs for the Wild Atlantic Way are currently being erected across the peninsula with many more to go up before the route is officially launched in March.
The national trail contains many ‘discovery points’, where tourists are encouraged to stop and explore the surrounding locality. There are ten such viewing points in Inishowen, including at Malin Head, Culdaff Beach, Kinnego Bay, Inishowen Head, Greencastle, Inch Island, Lisfannon Beach, Dunree Head, Mamore Gap and Pollan Bay.
