Everyone wants to make the Wild Atlantic Way their own, and it is so expansive that no two journeys along it could ever hope to be the same anyway! Travel writers have been having lots of fun making their own lists of favourite spots and suggested itineraries along the route. We were absolutely delighted to be included in one by a little-known publication called… National Geographic! Huge thanks to writer Kathleen M. Mangan who got in touch with us and honoured us by including our tours in her list.
You can read Kathleen’s whole piece here, and the page is open for comments too – or the excerpt about us is below.“Up for an adventure? Bicycle on Malin Head, the northernmost tip of the Irish mainland, where jagged rock pinnacles seem to taunt the sea. “I love to travel by bike; you can see so much more,” says Blaise Harvey, co-owner of Cycle Inishowen, which offers guided tours of the area starting in Carndonagh. En route, cyclists encounter Five Finger Strand and the Ulster village of Culdaff before stopping off for lunch at Seaview Tavern in Ballygorman. Everyone takes photographs from Banba’s Crown, Harvey says, but you can’t possibly capture the expansive view in one frame.”
