    “Ryan Tubridy is a fantastic ambassador for the Wild Atlantic Way and he can really get across to his listeners what the Wild Atlantic Way is all about and how it captures people’s imagination. This is the sixth consecutive year the show has chosen to experience the Wild Atlantic Way and Fáilte Ireland is delighted to be supporting it. We are delighted Ryan will get to experience some of the great tourism highlights during his visit along the route and of course that fantastic Irish hospitality on the Wild Atlantic Way.”

    “Spectators coming down to watch the broadcast - whether in Donegal, Sligo, Clare or Inis Mór, Co Galway - can expect to see plenty of festivities, interviews, live music as well as hear some fantastic local tourism experiences. We are encouraging everyone to come on down, to arrive early and join in the fun and discover ways to ‘Embrace the Wild Atlantic Way of Life through the airwaves.”

    “The Wild Atlantic Way is calling and we’re taking to the road to visit just some of the most beautiful and welcoming spots along the route…. From Donegal, to Sligo, Clare and the Aran Islands we’ll be weaving a piece of the Wild Atlantic Way magic into our listeners days and, as ever, I’m looking forward to getting out and meeting the locals and characters along the way.”
