Fáilte Ireland is planning a full-scale walking trail along the entire Wild Atlantic Way route.
In preparation for developing a framework to guide the development of the trail, Fáilte Ireland is to carry out a pilot study on how it can link both the Kerry Way and Dingle Way trails.
The outcome of this study will inform the approach for a full-scale trail of the entire 2,500km Wild Atlantic Way route.
Research carried out by Fáilte Ireland has identified walking as a compelling outdoor activity and a means of sightseeing for overseas markets.
In particular, the Wild Atlantic Way Coastal Path concept, which it labels “a hypothetical consumer experience”, came out on top as it presented the opportunity “to experience dramatic coastal landscape in a very close up and visceral way for international visitors”.
