Stunning drone-cam footage of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way

An incredible video from a professional drone-cam videographer takes you on a journey of Ireland’s spectacular Wild Atlantic Way.

Raymond Fogarty of AirCam Ireland spent six weeks travelling the 2,500km route from Kinsale to Malin Head and took film footage with his drone-cam all along the way.

The Wild Atlantic Way is the world’s longest defended coastal touring route. It takes in the entire west coast of Ireland with includes some beautiful and spectacular views such as the the ones at the Ring of Kerry and the Cliffs of Moher.

It also passes through cities and towns such as Galway (voted Ireland’s most romantic city) and Dingle (named the most beautiful place on earth by the National Geographic).

Not surprisingly, Fogarty’s video features some pretty stunning footage. The aerial video and photography was shot using a drone and a GoPro camera.

The AirCam Ireland video was made with the support of Fáilte Ireland and is presented by the Irish Independent.

It is introduced by the Irish Independent’s Pól Ó Conghaile who fronts their Travel TV series.

Ó Conghaile introduces Fogarty’s video saying: “Today we’re looking at one amazing piece of footage and the story behind it… welcome to a bird’s eye view of the Wild Atlantic Way.”

The video features plenty of footage along the Wild Atlantic Way as well as an interview with Fogarty.

Fogarty said: “It was a voyage of discovery, a 2,500km Irish journey on the road and in the sky. The longest defined road trip on the planet, and I was going!”

He told Ó Conghaile that his favourite point along the journey was Mayo. He said: “I got a feeling that this is what it looked like thousands of years ago. It’s fresh, it’s beautiful, it’s untouched and it’s absolutely magnificent.”
