Local business ‘Larkins of Newmills’ launch ‘Larkins Wild Atlantic Way Tours

The Wild Atlantic Way initiative aims to package the west of Ireland experience and establish a route of international standing that can be ranked alongside the great driving routes of the world.


It has the potential to become the European equivalent of the Great Ocean Road in Australia and the Garden Route in South Africa.  Larkins Wild Atlantic way tours will link the Donegal coastline and landscapes which it has influenced.  Donegal has so much to offer in areas of the history, heritage and culture of the beautiful places and people along the way. Larkins of Newmills would like to open tourism up to parts of the county that are forgotten by most tour operators.  So many tours/tourists come as far as Donegal town or may venture to Glenveagh but the rest of the county is not as well promoted, so does not attract tourists.

Larkinn's aim by these tours that we will showcase the amazing hidden jewels from Slieve Leauge to Kilclooney Dolmen, to Fanad Lighthouse, Doon Rock, Lough Salt, Rathmullan, Inishowen and Bloodyforeland etc. the list is endless, and that the rest of Donegal may benefit from Tourism also and end the use of the term for Donegal as ‘the forgotten county’.   This is our chance to show the world that Donegal is one of the most beautiful places on our planet. 


If businesses would like to promote themselves on our map then please get in touch with Larkins of Newmills on 0749126697.  Also they are looking for local craft workers to get in touch to display crafts for sale in our premises.  Further golfing & fishing tours as well as other products that aim to promote Donegal are awaiting launch over the coming weeks.  We are inviting all businesses to our new product launch evening on Thursday 26th June 2014 at 8pm in Larkins of Newmills.
