The Atlantic Drive
Ireland’s rugged northern coast is one of the most beautiful regions of the British Isles. In the east locations like the famous Giant’s Causeway provide geologically stunning sights while in the west there are few places as attractive as the Rosguill Peninsula – home of the dazzling Atlantic Drive.
The Atlantic Drive is a short and spectacular road which threads through a dramatic landscape at the very edge of Ireland. It is only a short distance away from the Radisson Blu Hotel Letterkenny making it one of the most enjoyable places to visit during a stay at the attractive hotel.
Where the land meets the sea
As visitors travel round the Atlantic Road they follow a route between two worlds, each breath-taking in its own right. On one side the vast expanse of the Atlantic Ocean sparkles in the fresh Irish light, lapping at the secluded inlets and sweeping bays.
Meanwhile, on the other side, the rocky outcrops, islands and lush landscape of Donegal are home to views which are just as spectacular as the shining water. As it winds along the coast the Atlantic Drive passes old church yards, unspoilt stretches of sand and excellent golf courses. Each point of interest provides a reason to take a break from the journey.
A short trip that’s big on sights
The Atlantic Drive is only about 12km long, making it easy to walk or cycle the route in half a day. However, to make the most of a trip to the area, visitors can stretch this out by enjoying lunch on the way, or a picnic in one of the secluded bays. And as the road is just a short distance from the Radisson Blu Hotel Letterkenny guests of the stylish accommodation will find it extremely easy to enjoy the wonderful area.
