Visiting the entire length of Ireland’ s wild Atlantic coast, from the sublime scale of seascape and mountain-scape in Donegal through the barren limestone of West Clare to the lush, quasitropical mountains of the south-west, The Atlantic Coast of Ireland records the landscape in beautiful detail and recounts the stories that echo through it.
