Clare’s Wild Atlantic Way is a collection of aerial photographs, taken and compiled by pilot-photographer Patrick G. Ryan.
The photographs render County Clare’s abundant coast in all its unique beauty. The awe-inspiring images capture both the rugged natural landscape of Clare and the man-made structures – castles, towers and lighthouses – that enhance it.
The collection includes popular tourist destinations such as the Burren, Lahinch and the Cliffs of Moher, along with lesser-known sites. Each location is also accompanied by a brief overview of its history, flora and fauna, and references in popular culture, along with suggested activities for tourists.
