If you have long-dreamed of taking a vacation in Ireland, then this bird’s eye view of the stunning Wild Atlantic Way 2,500km route way is just the nudge you need.
Filmmaker Robert Fogarty travelled the length and breadth of the Emerald Isle capturing clips of the now famous majestic trail. Clips in the short video showcase the best of Ireland’s West Coast, everywhere from County Donegal to Cork including sweeping sandy beaches, cliffs and ancient forts from a bird’s eye view. The video named “Seen from the sky: The Wild Atlantic Way”, lets you soar up to get a perfect view of the sea-land collision that many people travel thousands of miles to view.
The video is supported by Fáilte Ireland due to the fact that aerial videos are a “great fit” for travel videos. The footage is now being used by Fáilte Ireland to promote the Wild Atlantic Way route to people planning on taking a trip to Ireland.
The Wild Atlantic Way, said to be the world’s longest defined coastal touring route, was launched in April 2014 and was developed by Failte Ireland at a cost of €10 million. Gathering huge publicity both at home and overseas there are plans to further develop this route in 2015.
