Images of Donegal and Ireland’s West Coast

The West Coast exudes a romance like nowhere else in Ireland. It boasts an unsurpassable beauty and wild drama that is inextricably linked to the region’s culture, traditions and people. From the towering sea cliffs in Donegal and Galway, which are beaten by the Atlantic Ocean, to the serene beauty of the Killarney National Park and the Beara Way.

Ablaze with colour, the West Coast offers a chance to really get away from it all, to stand on the edge and face nature in all its glory. Here, you can climb mountains, travel to remote islands, explore quiet bays or discover ancient limestone landscapes. Most important, though, in the West Coast you can experience authentically Irish culture and traditions, from the vibrant Gaeltacht region and its lively céilis to the multitude of festivals that celebrate the history and heritage of this fascinating region.
