Wild Atlantic Way

There is a lot of publicity about Tourism Ireland’s launch in 2014 of the Wild Atlantic Way project. The signposted route follows the Atlantic coast of Ireland from Donegal all the way round to Co. Cork on the south west coast.

We like the Wild Atlantic Way video produced by FailteIrelandTV.

Millfield Self Catering holiday home is on Wild Atlantic Way Kerry and Cork route  and is a convenient location for exploring all that the beautiful Kerry coast has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you in 2014.
