The Wild Atlantic Way (Slí an Atlantaigh Fhiáin) is a tourist route, established to encourage visitors to explore the north-western, west, and south-western seaboard of Ireland.

Beginning at the border at Muff, near Derry, the route closely follows the Atlantic shore, with many spurs and loops that probe deeper into the rugged coastline, on its roughly 2,500 km journey to Kinsale.

Signage

The route is explicitly signed using the symbol of a white wavy line on a blue background, together with (N)/(S) compass directions. This signage is supplemented by metal marker posts at key locations.
