Connemara is set to reap the benefits of a €1.8m investment in the region.
The investment is part of plans for the Wild Atlantic Way which was announced by Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Michael Ring, this week.
It will be Ireland’s first long-distance driving route for tourists, and will go be a 1,400km route which will go from Donegal to West Cork. The initiative will aim to bring more tourists into the west of Ireland to help boost the region.
Minister Ring confirmed the first phase of the project will take place in Connemara.
