Welcoming the news, Alice Mansergh, Tourism Ireland’s Chief Executive Designate, said:
“I’m really delighted that the Wild Atlantic Way and Belfast have been included in National Geographic Traveller’s ‘Cool List 2024’. 2024 marks the 10th anniversary of the Wild Atlantic Way. Of course, the heritage and scenery of the Wild Atlantic Way span millennia but it’s certainly nice to take a moment to celebrate this iconic route, which came together into one 10 years ago next year.
“Accolades like this give Tourism Ireland another great hook to continue to promote the Wild Atlantic Way and the island of Ireland around the world as a ‘must see’ destination.”
This is what National Geographic Traveller said about the Wild Atlantic Way:
“Winding for 1,600 miles along the rugged west coast, the Wild Atlantic Way has become one of Europe’s most exciting road trips, not least because it ticks off some of Ireland’s most memorable experiences … It’s celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2024, and a string of new experiences along its route means there’s more to enjoy than ever.”
