Fáilte Ireland is calling for local communities across Cork to get behind the Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland’s new tourism initiative for 2014. The tourism authority will be holding a series of community meetings along the west coast in February including two in West Cork. The first will be held in the Maritime Hotel in Bantry on Thursday, February 6, followed by a meeting in Inchydoney Island Lodge and Spa, Clonakilty on Monday, February 10. Both meetings will run from 6.30 to 8.30pm.

Encouraging communities to get involved with the initiative, Fiona Monaghan from Fáilte Ireland said, “Over the coming weeks we will be holding a series of community briefings so that you can learn more about the Wild Atlantic Way, share ideas and work together. These events are all about making sure your local area gets the most out of this new initiative. The briefings will be held at a variety of locations along the route so come along, find out more about the project and how you can be part of it.”

The Wild Atlantic Way is a long distance touring route from Donegal to West Cork with a total length of 2,500km showcasing the Atlantic coastline.The objective of the Wild Atlantic Way is to link the destinations and attractions along the route together, with the ultimate aim of creating a variety of experiences and attracting more international visitors to the West Coast.
