'Wild Atlantic Way' Collection: The Wild Atlantic Way is 2600 km (1600 miles) in length, is one of the longest defined coastal route in the world. It winds its way all along the Irish west coast from the Inishowen Peninsula in the north down to the picturesque town of Kinsale, County Cork, in the south. This route from start to finish unfolds the wonders of nature, the power of the ocean and its imprint on the west coast of Ireland, and the stunning countryside in all its diversity. Enchanting villages are nestled along the coast as well as ancient monuments - their origins having long sunk into the mists of oblivion dot the landscape. Behind every bend on this magical coastal road a new delight awaits.
The wild Atlantic with its unrestrained and untameable tides and storms has continuously been moulding the west coast of Ireland. With a constant meeting of water and land, a deeply indented and wild terrain has emerged with towering cliffs, spellbinding bays and beaches, mystical islands, always changing and never reaching the end. In the isolation or perhaps expressed in a different way living near and with the Atlantic at your doorstep has ensured that old traditions and the Irish language have been preserved.
Classiebawn Castle Mullaghmore Head: Mullaghmore is a small seaside village situated on a peninsula in the north-western corner of the parish of Ahamlish, County of Sligo. On the western side rocky cliffs defy the Atlantic gales while to the East, sheltered from the Atlantic Ocean, lies a golden sandy beach and picturesque stone-built harbour.
The castle stands on the tallest point on Mullaghmore Head and commands views of Donegal Bay, Ben Bulben and the village of Mullaghmore. It is a Victorian residence originally commissioned by Lord Palmerston who served two terms as Prime Minister of Britain in the early part of the 19th century. He built Mullaghmore harbour back in the mid-19th century. The Classiebawn estate had passed to him from his ancestors the Temple family who had been granted lands following the conquest of Ireland by Cromwell. Now privately owned and not open to the public.
