The Atlantic Story

Begining with a local community that wanted to celebrate and interpret the history and culture of Black Sod and the Belmullet peninsula, The Atlantic Story visitor attraction is due to begin construction in late 2020, opening in 2023.  Údarás na Gaeltachta worked hand in hand with Comharchumann Deirbhle to develop concepts and funding applications for The Atlantic Story. In 2019 €2.5million was secured from the Department of Rural and Community Development, Roinn Oidhreacht, Cultúr agus Gaeltachta and Údarás na Gaeltachta to develop this project. Údarás is actively working on the project with all Stakeholders to create an immersive, all weather visitor attraction for the region.
