The Wild Atlantic Way is inspiring, renewing, relaxing and invigorating and this week The Clare Champion, in collaboration with The Connacht Tribune, will publish the third edition of ‘Where West’ magazine, the ultimate guide to planning your staycation holiday along the west coast of Ireland.
‘Where West’ magazine is designed to help readers get the most out of their daytrip or long weekend in both Clare and Galway post Covid-19 lockdown. The magazine is packed with local information, hidden gems and plenty of things to do in both counties.
All along the Wild Atlantic Way, the world’s longest defined coastal touring route, the spectacular scenery embellishes the tourism offering from quaint eateries, to pretty seaside villages, sandy bays and cliff top walks.
Clare Champion managing director, John Galvin said Clare is renowned for its tourism offering and the development of the Wild Atlantic Way has added another important string to its bow.
“In so many ways, counties Clare and Galway exemplify what is best about Ireland. Everything that we love about our country and all the images that are associated with it, can be found in abundance in both counties.’’
He said ‘Where West’ is designed to showcase businesses and events throughout counties Clare and Galway encompassing all that is best along the Wild Atlantic Way from sightseeing, walking, hiking and cycling to overnight or short stay holiday destinations.
“County Clare is blessed with a rich diversity of beautiful seaside villages, award winning seafood restaurants, tourist attractions and quality accommodation. There’s just so much to enjoy and explore along the Wild Atlantic Way and with our ‘Where West’ magazine we hope to get that message out there,” he said.
The magazine also features a fabulous free competition in conjunction with Clare County Council offering an action packed family holiday in East Clare, packed with fun family activities.
‘Where West’ is free with this week’s edition of The Clare Champion available in shops on Thursday morning.
