The Gaeltacht region boasts some of the most scenic regions in Ireland. Picturesque beauty, coupled with the Gaeltacht’s distinct culture and language, provide the ingredients for an unforgettable experience for the visitor. Encompassing 7 counties, each with its own Gaeltacht identity, there is diverse landscape and culture that ensure no two days are ever the same for the visitor.
Launched in 2014, the Wild Atlantic Way presents enormous opportunities for the Gaeltacht. Some 25 % of the Wild Atlantic Way passes along the coast of the Gaeltacht Islands and mainland.
Údarás na Gaeltachta recognises this opportunity and is working with community-led social enterprises, local authorities, entrepreneurs and other State agencies in the development of strategic cultural and experiential attractions.
