Fáilte Ireland Unveils New Viewing Points For Shannon Estuary Way

Fáilte Ireland has unveiled 11 new viewing points along the Shannon Estuary Way - the first in a series of Wild Atlantic Way looped drives created to encourage visitors to explore other parts of the region and stay longer.

It is hoped that the new viewing points located at Ringmoylan Pier, Ballysteen Pier, Boland’s Meadow, Kilteery Pier, Glin Pier, Knock Pier, Labasheeda Quay, Killadysert Pier, Covraghan Pier, Clarecastle Pier and Tullyglass Point will encourage visitors to stop, enjoy the view and engage with the stories of each area.

"A Significant Opportunity For Limerick And Clare"

Unveiling the new viewing points, minister of state at the Department of Finance and the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform Patrick O’Donovan said, "As minister of state for tourism and sport in 2017, I launched the Shannon Estuary Way with Fáilte Ireland, and I’m delighted to see the drive develop over the last year. The Shannon Estuary Way provides a significant opportunity for Limerick and Clare to benefit from the Wild Atlantic Way, opening up the region’s inland hinterland to visitors."
