A fully illustrated guidebook to the many beautiful towns and places of interest to visit along the Wild Atlantic Way.
From the drama of Donegal to the beauty of west Cork, the 2,500km Wild Atlantic Way is one of the world’s greatest tourist routes.
The unique towns along the way are the perfect bases from which to explore Ireland’s spectacular west coast. Learn all about them – from the historic city of Galway to the copper-mining village of Allihies – as well as the routes and sights nearby.
Illustrated throughout with beautiful photographs and handy maps.

The author feels that towns have sometimes been relegated to second fiddle in comparison with mountains, lighthouses or beaches, and redresses this balance
